About Gesina "Gijsie" Steenkamp

Gesina, b4 moes klein gesterf het. Hier is 'n transkripsie van haar doopinskrywing, met ma Geesje Visser:

Baptism: 'Anno 1718. Den 18de Dito [Septbr]. Jan en Gijsie kinderen van Jan Stinscham en Gijsie Vissers. Getùijgen Hendrik Gildenhuijsen, Elsebe Mijer en Catharina Olivier.' (Gelaai by 'sources')

In 1723 is haar stiefsuster, Geesje, gedoop met ma Jannetjie van Eck. Haar doopinskrywing is by 'sources' op Gesina "Gijsie" Steenkamp - JS

The Four Gesinas:

Briefly: Jan Steenkamp (c 1680) marries Gesina "Gijsie" Visser (1686) & has a daughter, Gesina "Gijsie" Steenkamp (1718). His wife dies, & perhaps his daughter too. He remarries Johanna van Eck (c 1705) & has another daughter, Gesina "Geesje" Steenkamp (1723). For various reasons it seems more likely that it is this 1723 daughter who married Jan Nel & gave birth to Gesina Nel (1758), rather than her 1718 half sister. However, we can't be sure of this without more documentation.
