The du Toit's Cemetery

Amongst vines, just meters away from to the original du Toit's farm house, rests the du Toit's cemetery.

How did this happen? How can we ignore a historical monument and repudiate our lineage? 

Certainly us, Huguenots' descendants could take the initiative of organizing a regular clearing up of this last resting place.

Let's join our efforts and let's do the right thing!
