Question over year of birth

I've just set up the lyricist page for Weigle, but have put the year of his birth in as '1814 or 1816' - the page in CPDL for his only hosted setting at the moment, Drunten im Unterland (Traditional), gives 1814, as does the PDF for the one hosted edition of this work, but other sources (including en.wikipedia and de.wikipedia) give 1816 - hopefully someone may have more information on him than I have been able to find?

I've put the birth year as 1816, following the record at this site which states: "Von 1814 -1827 wohnte in diesem Haus Pfarrer Weigle mit seiner Familie. Hier ist 1816 Gottfried Weigle, der spätere Missionar, geboren." Most other sources I've consulted seem to prefer this date over 1814. – Chucktalk Giffen 21:25, 21 January 2011 (CST)
