Your birth date for Teunis Klein is correct. He was born at 2 P.M. on 26 Nov 1876 in Hien, Dodewaard, Gelderland, son of Roelof Klijn, laborer, and Hermina Bos.

I will attach the image, but you can see it at the link below.

Below is the transcription (from WieWasWie) of Teunis’s parents’ marriage certificate (naming their parents) and a link to the images (images 49 & 50; cert no. 13). Roelof's name is spelled Klein on his marriage cert and Klijn on Teunis's birth certificate (more or less dependent on the registrar).
