The Gous Family Tree, by Richard Ball

The Gous Family Tree, by Richard Ball

In my attempts to establish the facts for an article published in Genesis February 2007, I have reconstructed a large part of the first three Gous generations from the various documents that I consulted and I take the opportunity of presenting the first two generations here, since there is some variation between what I have found and what is presented in De Villiers / Pama and SAG. This family tree can also be seen on my personal web site The Gous Family of the Cape where the detailed source for every piece of information is also provided, as also the article Which Pieter Gous was Aletta Vorster’s husband?
