From research, I want to suggest the following corrections to Gerrit van der Linde's children:
1: b4 Gerrit was married to Anna Maria Harmse. Until recently it was believed that Leendert
and Sara Lubbe's son Gerrit (b3c3) married Anna Maria Harmse, but there are several reasons
why this cannot be the case. The interpretation that b4 - Gerrit married Anna Maria Harmse was
proposed to GISA and accepted as the more likely interpretation.
2. There is no evidence that b6 Martha Maria ever married.
Heinrich Korff married Martha, eldest daughter of Leendert and Sara Lubbe.
3. A third son was born to Gerrit van der Linde and Geertruij Putter -
b7 Johannes Zacharias baptised 12 Aug 1731 in Cape Town.
