The army list of the compagny of lieutenant-colonel Oostdijck in the first Bataillon of the Regiment Infanterie from lieutenant-general van Raders, made while garrisoned at Tournais (25 March 1781), stated that Johannes had a length "op kousevoeten van 5 voet, 6 duim en 1 streek" and he was 39 years old.

Both Ieper and Nieupoort were so-called Barriertowns, where dutch armies were stationed to help the Austrian rulers of Belgium at that time to protect against France until 1781.
