* Oupa Ouland Germishuys.
Among the names mentioned by Emmerentia de Kock from the Agulhas National Park that are buried here is one, Oupa Ouland Germishuys.
The Germishuys Family Tree is very detailed and can be found on the Internet.
I have perused the Germishuys Family Tree to try and find out who Oupa Ouiland Germishuys was and if any other Germishuys member is buried there.
According to the Family Tree, Jurie Johannes Germishuys is the only member buried at Ratelrivier.
In this regard, I have also contacted the local Historian, Piet van As, who has lived all his long life in close proximity to Ratelrivier, but he was unable to assist who Oupa Ouland Germishuys.
Below is the extract from The Germishuys Family Tree and I am fairly certain that Oupa Ouland Germishuys is in fact Jurie Johannes Germishuys Jurie Johannes Germishuys <http://www.germishuys.com/familytree/gtp63.htm>
