Death & burial date and place: Mar 12 1807 "- Skarrild Denmark"? added from a MH match. No validation. Possibly erroneous. We had no death date before, though (just Cape Town, for place) - so I'm putting it here to be researched further. The husband on the MH profile is also different: Johannes Hendrikus De Lange - Adriaan's brother. Please see Profile Discussion to rebut. [Sharon Feb 2014]
