Birth and death of Jean-Baptiste Degoux

We know that Jean-Baptiste Degoux was born in 1859. But it could have been another year too. Anyway, we can be pretty sure about his date of birth: that was May 12. Or it could be another day.

A day earlier. Or one day later. Or another day in may, or in another month.
Fact is that Jean-Baptiste Degoux was born in 1859, on May 12th.
Say, until today this is a fact.


On the other hand, the day of his death remains a mystery.

Dear beloved Founders,
Great happiness was my part when opening my mail this morning. With uther joy I took knowledge of the fact I may become a member of your illustrious Society. What an honour. Since my childhood I have been aware of a hard to defining need, a blind spot. Since today I know what I missed. I WAS NOT A MEMBER. Now being one, I will be able to deploy my full personality. I will, of course, do all the possible to help you to find more information about the famous Mr Degoux. I will try to help you in your quest to gather historical facts about this fine human being. To my humble opinion I might be quite fit for this job, because my wife loving wife often discribes me as being 'DEGOUTANT'.
Yours most greatfull member
