South Africa / Willem Johannes Basson b.c1844
« on: Wednesday 03 July 19 18:14 BST (UK)  »
I'm looking for Willem's parents/ancestors.
Willem married Martha Susanna Elisabetta Briedenhan in Oct 1867 in Boshof and they had 3 children: Martha Susanna Elisabetta c1868, Nicolaas Solomon Johannes c1870, Johanna Elisabetta 1872.
Willem and Martha were both widowed when they married - he was 23 and she was 20. I have their marriage record, Martha's bapt record and death notice, and have traced Martha's parents and g/parents etc, as well as her first husband.
It's just Willem who is proving to be a brickwall. He was married again in 1873, and he died before Dec 1928 ["deceased" in dau Johanna's DN]

Does anyone have any suggestions as to where someone born in Elsburg might have been baptised ?
They would have been baptised in the Dutch Reformed Church, and I can't find anything in the available records for Elsburg.
