born 1679, at the Cape 4
baptized 5 November 1679, Cape Town 5
died 17 July 1713 6
| Gerrit and his wife would both seem to have died in 1713, she before|
the 5th July and he around the 17th July. Four other of his brothers
died in the same year, Jan, Willem, Isaak and Claas Elbertsz.
Presumably they all died in the smallpox epidemic of that year.
