According to Otharus' sources, this Floris August was born in 1863.
According to what I just found out, he was born in 1866, in Samarang Indonesia:
I don't know what the Over de Linden relations with Indonesia were,but yesterday I have been busy for a while finding out about that place in the OLB, "Lumka-makia".
Knul says it must be near the mouth of the Eems (Ee-mude), I said it could be Lemster, near the mouth of a (now no longer existing) river Ee in Friesland.
And yesterday I tried a "puzzler" tactic, lol, and searched for Lumakya/"Lumakia/Lumacia/Lumakhya, and almost everytime I ended up on some Indonesian site.
An example: http://www.sastra.or...on?le_pos=44370
(It could also be an Filipino word: http://mackoi.blogsp...hat-i-want.html . Now I could ask an ex of mine who is a Filipina, but I need to drink a lot more before I can stand her verbal abuse, LOL. She was always very creative).
With the help of a dictionary I found out that "Luma Ka" is "old you" in Tagalog.
"ma" = be.
"Luma Ka Ma Ka" would then result in something like "old you be you".
Or something like "You old fart that you are", lol.
OK, so far the "puzzler" tactic.
