From the City Coins 71 auction, November 2020.

ABO (Burger P. J. S. Venter)

Petrus Venter served in the Ladybrand Cdo and was one of two Burghers killed in the skirmish at Rensburg. His daughter, Mrs Halliwell, who was 4 years old when her father was killed, applied for his medal in 1937, stating in a covering letter that she was the only surviving member of the family.

Father: killed at Rensburg, 14 Feb 1900. He was re-interred at Colesberg some years later.
Mother: died 18 March 1900, but name of Concentration Camp not specified.
Younger sister: died later in 1900.
Brother: who must have been with Miss Venter and survived the Concentration Camp, died in 1935.
