Susanna Biebou1

F, #5134, b. 23 February 1687
Father*Detlef Bibault1 b. c 1660, d. b 28 Sep 1695
Mother-Putative*Diana van Madagascar b. bt 1665 - 1669; a comparative timeline for all slaves named Diana in this period reveal Diana van Madagascar to be the only potential candidate as mother to Susanna. A further clue to the probable continuous relationship between Biebow and Diana, would be his subsequent purchase of a slave woman named Diana van Madagascar. Bibouw married (1688) so that his relationship with Diana remained de facto.2
