Sixth and last child--and second daughter--of Matthys Strijdom and Elisabeth/Isabeau Nortje.
This indomitable lady, now 90 years old, is still alive and living with her bachelor son, Barend, in the Zwartruggens in Feb-March 1814 when the 1813 Graaff-reinet Opgaaf [#1] is done. Amazingly, she lists no property, no animals....but she lists 4 male slaves, one male slave under 16 years of age, and two female slaves over 16. Her son, at the same time, lists 17 Hottentots and one male slave, while his ordinary property is a horse & cart, one wagon with 16 draught oxen, 30 breeding cattle, and 310 sheep. There is no clarity on what 17 Hottentots and 8 slaves would be doing on a farm with so little property.
Elizabeth does not appear in the 1814 Muster list [#2] taken in 1815. We conclude she died during 1814.
