Yes I found an image of the Ship - it was used during the Boer War as a transport.  The passenger list gives the names of more prominent ones, only saying accompanied by, for instance 520 men.

Emma do you have Abraham David Stephanus Theron's death notice? I have it and I see that he was born in the Orange Free State. So now I am confused. Why did he join the Cape Rebels? I thought only those that were born in the Cape Colony and had joined the Boer republics were known as Cape Rebels. Born in the Orange Free State you would think he would of joined the Boer forces there?

I'm also not sure, maybe he was allowed to join for different reasons!

That's nice Emma, are any of the children buried there as well ? I remember you said only one child is still alive.

Hi,

No, as the children got married, they moved away and got buried elsewhere,

Hi Karen,

I see you have the Death Notice of ADS Theron.  I would love to see it.  I'm also trying to get info on their marriage, went to search Marriage Records, but were not successful.

Thanks,
Emma

Hi Karen,

I tried to obtain a Marriage Certificate of ADS Theron and EC Faltdt, but I get an errand message that my browser is out of date!  I wonder if someone can assist me to get one? They got married in Belfast, Lydenburg, Transvaal between 1902 -1906 - records are kept : Reformed Church Archives Potchefstroom.

Thanks for your help in my research,
Emma
