Some people have those names as his parents but then they say he was born in Belgium. Which does not work, for Jacob van Reenen van Niekerk and Jeanne Francois Duminy were both born in South Africa and died in South Africa. And all their children were born in Durbanville and surrounding area in the Cape.
Also they have his birth date as 1858, but I have not found a baptism or death notice for him.

If he is the son of Jacob van Reenen van Niekerk and Jeanne Francois Duminy their son named Hendrik Cornelis van Niekerk born 1850 must of died young, for them to name another son with the same name but adding van Reenen to it.

The only time I have come across Hendrik Cornelis van Reenen van Niekerk is the batism of three of his children in Boshof, Orange Free State.

Sorry I cannot be much help. But I am also looking for documents for him.
