Sara Susanna Snyman


Born 27 September 1817, Rietvlei Farm, De Rust 1
Died 4 August 1857, Rietvlei Farm, De Rust 2

Notes:

Sarah is the daughter of Johannes Hendrik Snyman and Anna Wilhelmina Sophia Snyman. She is the great-granddaughter of Coenraad Frederik Bezuidenhout. Coenraad was the man blamed for the Second Frontier War of 1792 because of his help for AmaRharhabe Xhosa regent, Ndlambe, against the Suurveld amaXhosa groupings. Coenraad's two younger brothers were the men who were killed by the British Army at the start and end of the so-called "Slagtersnek Rebellion" in 1815.

At this time, she is in the company of Philip Christoffel Botha. At this point, we lose track of Anna and never hear or read of her again. No Death Notice has been found for this lady.

Notes: Aletta is confirmed in the Dutch Reformed Church of Oudtshoorn on 25 December 1863. [#1]. Her middle name comes from her death notice and the Oudtshoorn DRC membership register. The other two come from her baptism in the same church. SA Genealogies by Heese swops the two outer names around.
On 25 March 1883 she appears as witness to the Oudtshoorn Dutch Reformed Church baptism of Pieter Johannes, son of her eldest brother Pieter Johannes [#2]. She appears at the baptism in the company of Philip Christoffel Botha.
