Notes:
"The story of Peter Von Scholten, Governor of the Danish West Indies who freed the slaves ca. 1848, and Anna Heegaard; also, daughter of the Dane Jacob Heegaard, is legend in the folklore and written history of the Danish West Indies. Some Danish historians have called the Von Scholten-Heegaard twenty-five year relationship the greatest love story of the Danish West Indies." (Louise Daniel Hutchinson, Ancestry.com message board,
