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.

Note: Discovery of the Main Reef in Witwatersrand. Gold rushes to Pilgrim's Rest and Barberton were precursors to the biggest discovery of all, the Main Reef/Main Reef Leader on Gerhardus Oosthuizen's farm Langlaagte, Portion C, in 1886, the Witwatersrand Gold Rush and the subsequent rapid development of the gold field there, the biggest of them all.

Magdalena Petronella CONRADIE (~5.8.1883)

Magdalena Petronella CONRADIE *30.5.1883, ~5.8.1883, is the child of Christiaan Gert CONRADIE and Magdalena Elizabeth GROVE according to the Richmond NGK baptism records. As far as I can tell there are no further baptisms recorded for her parents. In both her parent's death notices there is no mention of a Magdalena Petronella, only a Magdalena Elizabeth.

According to Magdalena Elizabeth CONRADIE's gravestone she was born on 29 May 1883 and not 30 May 1883.

Despite this slight inconsistency I have identifed the baptised Magdalena Petronella as Magdalena Elizabeth, known to the family as Tant Lenie.
