Red Book 1912 - J. Engelbrecht - Uasin Gishu
Habari 2009 - Through passage of time some trekker families, like those of Piet du Plooy, Jan and Andries Nel and Jochemus Engelbrecht (son of Hermanus Engelbrecht) left the Plateau to settle elsewhere. Jochemus, his wife Maria Jacoba (neé du Plessis) and their 3 children Hermanus (Manie, b. 1904), Anna Dorothea (Annatjie, b. 1906 - later Smit) and Lourens Stephanus (Faantjie, b. 1910) returned to Bethal in 1912 where Jochemus died of malaria contracted en route. Shortly afterwards, Maria and her 3 children returned to BEA where she remarried Willem van Dyk. Out of this union 2 more children, Gerhardus Cornelius (Baas, b. 8 Nov 1915) and Johanna Petronella (Babe, b. 22 Dec 1920 - later Van der Westhuizen), were born.
