|VAN RHEEDE VAN OUDTSHOORN, Geesje Egberta
VAN RHEEDE VAN OUDTSHOORN, Geesje Egberta 1
1. Alt Name. MOOC 6/9/18079-2046 says her mother was " Geesje Egberta born Van Oudtshoorn" whereas I have that she was born Van Rheede. I tend to think the MOOC refers to where she came from, and I lean towards keeping the Van Rheede name. No. Alwyn Smit points out that there was a time when double barrelled surnames were inuse and in this case the name Van Rheede van Oudsthoorn would have been current.
Geesje married Matthys Michiel Andries DE JAGER, son of Matthys Gottlieb DE JAGER and Antoinette (Anetta) Elizabeth WEEBER, on Nov 2, 1866 in Oudshoorn, Western Cape, South Africa. (Matthys Michiel Andries DE JAGER was born on Sep 17, 1831 in Durban Natal Province South Africa 2, christened on Oct 16, 1831 in Durbanville, Cape Town, South Africa 2 and died on Jul 17, 1911 in Beaufort West, Cape Colony, South Africa 1.)
