That's very interesting, because Jane Ritchie Henderson, born 1898, was the daughter of Alexander Ritchie and Jane McCrae Fawns, and as far as I know unrelated to Jane Leighton Henderson who may or may not have been Jean Leighton Ritchie, the mother of Eleanor May Mytton or Wallace who also died in South Africa. ???

Not sure if this is your Jane but you might be familiar with the address
There is a UK Departure Record 29 October 1924 South Hampton going to South Africa
Miss J R Henderson address came from 21, Forfar Street Forfar occupation weaver

Just came across this British Newspaper Archives Family Notice
Event date 23 April 1927
Marriage date 23 April 1927
Event Place Dundee
Jean Ritchie Henderson
Father Alex Henderson
Spouse Harold Waterworth
His father R Waterworth

I would say this is more  like it  worth checking out
There is no marriage for this couple on SP

Do see a few records on passenger lists for this couple South Africa

And her name is recorded  as Jean Ritchie Waterworth

The full article in the Dundee Courier says that the wedding of Harold Waterworth and Miss J R Henderson took place at the Wesleyan Chapel in Muizenberg, South Africa.

Thanks Rosie, unfortunately I donít know what her occupation was & I am in contact with the owner of the tree as we have a DNA match. She had told me about South Africa but she has no documentation to back up her claims. Just hoping it was someone else with proof. Thank you very much anyway.
