  whiteshark: According to NicBase he was born on March/09/1875. (Credits to <Stonehenge>)

A <Jean Defuse> repost from ibid Karl Behting :

"The youngest Roberts Betins (1875-) won the Baltic Chess Champions Title in the first Baltic Chess Congress tournament in 1899, but he did not participate in tournaments later. He also composed some interesting Endings with a special “catch”."

From “Sachs Latvija lidz 1940. Gadam”, “Chess in Latvia to 1940". (Translation by K Grivainis)

I already tried to find out something about the d.o.d., but without success. Perhaps one of my esteemed, historically interested colleagues is more skilful here.
