This is a document created in Napoleonic French when the west bank of the Rhine was part of France and I need a translation of it that is as accurate as possible. The date used, which I cannot read, is that used by France under Napoleon, and I need that converted to a standard date as well... He was born in 1801 [as far as I know] and I do NOT know the names of his parents, which might also be on this document.
