Hy hertrou in 1829 met Martha Margaretha Elizabeth van Zyl.  Daar word aangeneem dat hierdie vrou van hom, langs hom begrawe lê.

Hy trou vir 'n derde keer met Martha Margaretha van Taak by wie hy twee seuns gehad het.  It is interesting to note that the type of stone and the style of engraving of Nel’s and van Taak’s gravestones are similar although nine years apart (Grave 4 and Fig. 4). The sourcing of grave stones in the late 19th century would be an interesting project.  (https://www.vassa.org.za/wp-content/uploads/2010/09/Jrnl-15-full-text-web.pdf)

Who was interred in this graveyard? Working backward through time we can discount the van Wyk family, as when they purchased Papkuilsfontein they were resident on another nearby farm, Matjesfontein, and already had a family graveyard. The genealogical details are taken from Heese and Lombard unless otherwise noted. Nel’s at Papkuilsfontein: 1838 – after 1900 Those who were, or may have been, interred are shown in italics.
