David Johannes WELGEMOED (1793-1871)

The birth year of David Johannes WELGEMOED can be determined in the following three ways:

Death notice: His age at death is given as 78y 4m, which implies born about Feb 1793
Welgemoed naamlys: States his birth date as 19 Jan 1802 (but the source is unclear)
Gravestone: States his birth date as 19 January 18-0-13 (with the zero crossed out)

Until more evidence is found, I will take the age at death as definitive. The written 7 in 78 years on the death notice is unmistakable. This would mean he was 78y and his wife 71y in 1871. If he was born in 1813, he would be 58y and his wife 61y at his death.

Note: In 1881 gold in the Barberton area was discovered by Tom McLachlan who found alluvial gold at Jamestown. However due to the location (the hot lowveld region was rife with malaria) no-one wanted to go there until Auguste Roberts (French Bob) discovered gold in Concession Creek in 20 June 1883. This discovery resulted in a gold rush to the area.
