The Eureka Diamond was the first diamond discovered in South Africa. It weighed 21.25 carats (4.250 g), and was found by Erasmus Jacobs near Hopetown on the Orange River in 1867. The diamond, cut to a 10.73-carat (2.146 g) cushion-shaped brilliant, is currently on display at the Mine Museum in Kimberley. The discovery of diamonds in South Africa led to the Kimberley Diamond Rush, and marked the beginning of the Mineral Revolution. Source: Wikipedia

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. Source: Wikipedia

Magdalena Pehmella *30.05.1883

Magdalena Petronella CONRADIE (*30.5.1883, ~5.8.1883)

According to the Richmond NGK baptism records, this is the child of Christiaan Gert CONRADIE and Magdalena Elizabeth GROVE. 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.
