Catharina Allegonda van Lier (1768-1801) came to the Cape in 1786 with her brother, the pastor Helperus Ritsema van Lier. After his death of tuberculosis in 1793, she continued her brother's work and became engaged to the missionary Joannes Jacobus Kicherer. Catharina Allegonda also suffered from tuberculosis and on her sickbed handed Kicherer her diary and other writings with the request to publish them "for the generation of godly people, for provoking others, for the eyes of the blind to be opened and the sight of those who see may be strengthened". She died in Cape Town, 33 years old.
