Hi Mike
I will look him up on the Boer Museum website, (it is under maintenance at the moment).
But the SA National Archives have this man:

This may be his death file in 1937.
If it is, his wife's name was Elsie Margrietha Kruger

DEPOT VAB
SOURCE MHG
TYPE LEER
SYSTEM 02
REFERENCE 29002
PART 1
DESCRIPTION VAN DER WALT, JOHANNES CHRISTIAAN. EGGENOTE: ELSIE MARGRIETHA
(GEBORE KRUGER).
STARTING 19370000
ENDING 19370000

Adrian
