My name is Gavin Peterson and have been researching my ancestors for my Family Tree and have come across the story of William Murphy which I found very interesting. William married my maternal great grandmother, widow Sara Philida Jacoba Slater (born van Dyk), see the attached marriage certificate. They had 2 children, my uncle Ted Murphy and aunt Alice Blanche Murphy. My grandmother was Mabel Mary Slater, daughter of Sara. Mabel married my grandfather, Johannes August Petersen in 1891, he was born in Hamburg, Germany and went out to S A to work on the Gold Mines in Nigel. My father Thomas Nigel was a product of that marriage. When I first got married in 1960 in Durban, we had the pleasure of having Uncle Ted at our wedding and had the use of his Rolls Royce
If any members have any more info to share I would appreciate it
