Marcus Tulloch Sutherland in Warmbad

Marcus Tulloch Sutherland was born in Bathgate, Scotloand in 1868. He emigrated to South Africa, and in 1894 moved to Warmbad, German South West Africa. He is reported to have been a pioneer of the route from Kimberley across the Kalahari Desert to Warmbad. In 1903 he was apparently captured by the Hottentots. He died suddenly on 10 October 1911 in or near Warmbad.

I would be very grateful for any information about his time in Warmbad and his death, or for any suggestions for possible resources which I might research. I can read German fluently, so information in German would not be a problem.
