  1. [S565] Eben De Klerk, "Die Verhaal van Susanna Bibouw", Familia (Verhaal, Susanna Bibouw) Vol.12, no. 4 (1986): As Susanna in 1711 met Willem Odendaal (uit Keulen aangekom in 1706) trou en 'n kindjie Engela word gebore, tree haar halfsuster Maria en die se man Philip Morkel, as getuies op by die doop op 11 Oktober 1711. Dié dooprol ruim ook alle twyfel uit die weg dat Engela Odendaal, dalk 'n kind kon wees uit Willem Odendaal se tweede huwetik met Judith Nel , na die oorlye van Susanna..
