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.

Johanna Cok

b. c1712

children of Gerrit Elbertsz and Johanna Cok

Hendrik Elbertsz born circa 1712
born circa December 1712 8

Notes: He was alive on 5th July 1713 when he
was named in the will of Christina van Loveren and
Willem van Zijl, who stated that he was to be included
among their heirs, receiving an equal portion with
their children, stating that they bequeathed this as
grandfather and grandmother.

He is not mentioned in their will of 1722 so he had
presumably died before that.
