My great-grandparents, Joseph Butler and Mary Louis Butler (Eldred) arrived in South Africa just a few months before the Boer War broke out. Joseph (fomerly 69th Field Artillery, Royal Artillery (RFA) ) opened up a blacksmith shop in Ladysmith, Natal. Once the war broke out, we know he landed up with the Civilian Remounts (Weston, near Mooi River). My great-grandmother and her children were placed on the last train out of Ladysmith before the siege began. I would love to know what happened to her from then, until she joined up with my grandfather about three months later at Mooi River). I live in Port Elizabeth, South Africa.
