Research on the Rheeder Family Tree was done by Bonnie Sydow. The tree was published by Bonnie in the GGSA Omnibus Volume 4.

See extract from Rev CI Latrobe's Journal under Sources on his profile, where latter describes a visit to Groot Paardekraal in 1816 with some anecdotes from his interactions with Jacob "Rutter". Latrobe misspelt the surname which probably stems from the German word for "Rider".
