The wives of Francois Jacobus JOUBERT (1827-1906)

He first marries Margaretha Louis BOSHOFF (1828-1879). Then he is married a second time to Dina Carolina BOTHA (1852-1923). She was the widow of Jan Johannes BRITS and was the mother-in-law of his son Pieter Johannes Venter JOUBERT (1870-1948), who was married to Dina's daughter Anna Cecilia BRITS (-1901).

In Pieter Johannes Venter JOUBERT's death notice of 1948 his mother's name is given as Dinah Carolina Boshoff. This fact was recorded 69 years after his mother's death and is a mixture of the first names of his father's second wife and the surname of his mother.
