Hi Jean.

Thanks anyway for looking.

We were hoping for an easy solution... It's all a bit of a mystery really. We know where and when he died (1914, Jamestown) and who he married (Bridget Moy, 1873). Interestingly enough, the reported ages at his marriage and death don't correlate. He was supposedly 27 when he married in 1873 (giving him a birthdate of ~1846) but 76 when he died in 1914 (giving him a birthdate of ~1838).

Now I know he wasn't born is SA (I wish!), we need to figure when he came to SA, and where from. I can forsee lots of time looking over passenger lists.

Thanks again. Any tips and suggestions will be gratefully accepted,

Leisa
