Van Niekerk's need age of people
« on: Wednesday 15 May 19 10:04 BST (UK) »
Need help with age of people in the photo, please.
The older couple are my great grandparents, Hendrik Cornelis van Niekerk born 1849 Cape Province, South Africa. And his wife Johanna Wilhelmina Sophia Neethling.

The younger man I think is their son but I do not know which one? so if I can get an age for him it might help to identify which out of 6 sons he is.

Thanks

Mid to late 30's maybe for the chap on the right.  They do look alike (the two on the right)

Thanks Milliepede

What is your guess for the ages of the older couple, would you say about their late 60's?

Treetotal the photo is to large that is why I reduced it in size. There is no dates on the back only writing written by my aunt  " Ouma & Oupa van Niekerk Mammie van Wyk se ouers."
in English Gran and Grandpa van Niekerk mommies parents.

The back has a cream canvas texture with VELOX  4 cm space  Velox printed on it from bottom to top in three rows about 5 cm apart and a no. 2 367

Yes late 60's must be for the middle couple.  Maybe the older is nearer the camera but she does have large hands! 

I am fascinated by the woman on the left, her cardigan looks so modern.

The reason I ask is because the lady and little boy look to be dressed in 1930s clothing or even later styles which would put the older couple in their 80s? Could it be the next generation?

Millie  :D when I first saw the photo her hands also were the first thing I saw.
The cardigan could be 1940's or 1950s
The younger couple could be grandchildren, but I do not think so.

My Ouma died in 1972 at the age of 81.
The young man could be her brother Jacob van Reenen van Niekerk born 1898 and died 1965 he was the youngest son. He had three boys born 1933, 1936 and 1943

I have another two photo's of the older couple, one of him and one of her. They are not as nice for they were photo copped, I do not have the originals. What age would you say they were in them?
