Shared note

Hertrou 7 Okt 1775 Elsie Lubbe. Ook bekend as Pieter van der Merwe. Bekend as Piet Lakenvlei; het 95 jaar oud geword en het altyd 'n onderbaadjie van geel sy gedra, wat drie maal om die lyf van 'n gewone persoon kon gaan. Welvarend, joviaal. In "Travels in Southern Africa" boek II, p 203, van Heinrich Lichetnstein word van 'n besoek aan sy gesin vertel. “...Petrus van der Merwe wat algemeen erken is as een van die agtenswaardigste manne in die kolonie. Hy was ‘n joviale gasheer met ‘n uitgebreide kennis van die land, ‘n waardige en presiese hoof van sy uitgebreide patriargale huishouding en ten spyte van sy 66 jaar buitengewoon gesond en aktief.” (vgl Ceres-Eeufees Gedenkboek p.113).
