Birth*Gesina Steenkamp was born before 18 September 1718 in de Caep de Goede Hoop.1
BaptismGesina Steenkamp was baptized on 18 September 1718 Nederduitsch Gereformeerde Kerk, Drakenstein, de Caep de Goede Hoop. The baptism was witnessed by Catarina Olivier, Hendrik Gildenhuyzen and Elsabe Meyer.2
Death*She died before 4 July 1723, when her younger sibling is baptised with the same name.
NotesI originally had Gesina Steenkamp daughter of Gesina Visser as the spouse of Jean Labuscaigne and Jan Nel. However, her mother died before 1720 when her father Jan Steenkamp remarried as a widow. In 1723, with his wife Johanna van Eck he baptised a second daughter, Geesje Steenkamp, with the same name, who clearly seems to be named for her older, deceased sibling. For these reasons, and also because the wife of Jan Nel had her last child in 1767, when the daughter of Gesina Visser would have been past child-bearing age, it is in my view, this second daughter who became wife to Jan Labuscaigne and Jan Nel. My thanks to Sharon Marshall for bringing this to my attention.
