Danksy die speurwerk van Charlene Irene Viljoen is nog een van die stigterslede van die GRA nou ook geidentifiseer. Charlene Irene Viljoen het ook al aangebied om DF du Toit se sterfkennis vir ons te trek by die KAB gedurende haar volgende besoek. Dankie Charlene!

Ek het onderhand die volgende bronne sekondêre bronne vir D.F. du Toit op die internet gevind :

1) n' Wikipedia inskrywing by http://af.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dani%C3%ABl_Francois_du_Toit
2) Die webblad van die familie Farr (http://www.farr.co.za/genealogy/3042.html) waar sy ouers aangegee word as Daniel Francois du Toit (1828-1869) en Maria Magdalena Malan (1828-1910)
3) Die webblad van Antonie du Toit by http://antoniedutoitsgenealogy.yolasite.com/du-toit-history-and-wel... waar hy die volgende inligting oor die du Toit lede van die GRA gee:
"The name Du Toit is often found in historical documents. The DU TOITS played a huge role in the fields of culture, church and education and they made significant contributions. Under the first champions of the Afrikaans language were four Du Toits who contributed to the establishment of the "Genootskap van Regte Afrikaners" in Paarl on August 14, 1875. They were DANIEL FRANCOIS (Dokter) DU TOIT, DANIEL FRANCOIS (Oom Lokomotief) DU TOIT, S G D DU TOIT and ds STEPHANUS JACOBUS DU TOIT. Daniel Francois (Dokter) du Toit (21.1 1.1853 - 2/4/1918), the printer, was born in Daljosofat and visitted the Transvaal in 1873. In 1875 he became a printer in Paarl and is one of the first to the propose to translate the Bible in Afrikaans. Daniel Francois (Oom Lokomotief) du Toit (15/1/1846 - 22.4 in 1923), was a nephew of Dokter. He was also born at Daljosaphat and was the pioneer Afrikaans journalist. He qualified as a teacher and with the establishment of the Afrikaans newspaper 'Di Patriot' he worked as a newspaper journalist. His nickname was "Oom Lokomotief" and he had a great influence on all Afrikaners with his literature. He went to the Orange Freestate in 1892 and joined the Boer forces during the Anglo Boer War. After the war, contributed to the campaign for Afrikaans and in his later years he was a Government Archvist at Bloemfontein. Oom Lokomotief's brother, dominee (reverend) Stephanus Jacobus du Toit's (9/10/1847 - 28/5/1911) teacher, Arnoldus Pannevis (later one of the eight persons who founded the Society of True Afrikaners). He was editor of "Di Patriot" and helped to establish the Afrikaner Bond in 1879. In 1882 he was appointed as Superintendent of Education in the Zuid-Afrikaanse Republic and accompanied the trio to Britain to negotiate the independence of the Republics. From 1890 to 1904 he was again editor of "Di Patriot" and were responsible for the establishment of the childrenspage "Ons Klyntji" in1896. His magazine 'Ons Taal' was founded in 1907 and he was also one of the first writers who was involved in the translation of the bible in Afrikaans. He was a friend of Cecil Rhodes and travelled to Rhodesia with him on numerous occassions. His status as a founder of the Afrikaans language remains uncontested."
