First wife of Johannes Izaak Frederik MARAIS *30.12.1809

[SAG 5, p458, e9] shows that he married Elizabeth Margaretha Maria MARAIS and had six children.

The first daughter, Maria Magdalena MARAIS *22.6.1840, has her mother named as Maria Magdalena MARAIS in her death notice. The death notice of Maria Magdalena DU PLESSIS +1844, shows one child Maria Magdalena and husband Johannis Isaak Frederik MARAIS.

Since children 2-6 of J.I.F. Marais have birthdates starting from 1846, it supports the assumption that he was first married to Maria Magdalena DU PLESSIS, and after her death in 1844, he married E.M.M. Marais b2c1d3e4f4. Further support for this is the fact that their first daughter (p458, f4 *22.10.1848) is named after E.M.'s mother, Rachel Maragaretha GROBBELAAR.
