20 AUG 1900

Date of death: Hendrik Paul WELGEMOED (1898-1965)

Welgemoed naamlys (GISA) states +20.08.1900, as well as Christo Welgemoed in his genealogy (there he cites a gravestone as evidence for it). These might be the same source.

However, Ouboet and his brother Barend lived with their brother Willem and his wife Attie for many years and his grave shows he died 20.05.1965.

In addition the Welgemoed (GISA, Christo) genealogies show no other siblings, and are thus clearly not complete either.

I have also not found a death registration for HP Welgemoed (*1898 +1900).
