Hi - no that isn't the right William Clark. He was definitely born in 1879 in Clifton Bedfordshire. He joined the army in about 1897 as an 18 year old and served at least 12 years, when he left the army in 1909 or thereabouts.
He wasn't in WW1 as he died in 1912 in Bedfordshire.
His wife was...
Sorry - details of name etc. would help.
B 1879 in Clifton, Bedfordshire
Enlisted approximately 1897...I have photos of him in South Africa with his regiment (not in uniform though).
He was also a Farrier Quartermaster I believe it was called.
Again any help would be...
Hi - I am trying to find some information on my great grandfather who served in the 6th Dragoon Guards during the Second Boer War from 1899 to 1902 I think it is.
Is there any sites or somewhere I can find out what battles etc. he was in, and if he received any medals. I do have some enlistment...
I noticed in the articles that is stated he was previously a butcher. If you look up some of the pictures in the state library they actually owned a slaughter house on Quinn West Road, Yatala i believe it was........very interesting.
the only way to find out where he was born is look at what...
Very true Dave.
The only thing i can think of is maybe Greve is the second wife, as that was quite often the case, but they always said the current wife was the mother, until you check the death records and Lange is the mother.....probably only way is to get his death certificate.
I have found a website about the Bethania Pioneers and it lists all the families that settled in Bethania.
It has Jurgen being born in Kiel, Prussia in 1845. But it lists his mum as Magadelena Amalie Greve and his father as George Andreas Haack and they were both from Prussia.
Hi. I don't actually have the birth or death certificate for Jurgen August Haack, but i believe he was born in Prussia as I have a book on the settlement of Bethania and it lists a lot of baptisms, and a couple of the children of Jurgen and Wilhelmine are listed as being born in Bethania.
Hi Nikki and Dave
I have the Haacks and Flessers in my line on ancestry. My line is through Ida Auguste Haack, as she married my great uncle Frederick Sailer. or Seiler.
I also have a few photos on ancestry, let me know if you are interested. Will see if i can find some other information. I...
Thanks for your help.
He was actually based in South Africa from 1899-to about 1903 or thereabouts, so i know he definitely wasn't in England for the 1901 census.
I was just wondering if they would assume that the records of his service in the army for that time would be where his...
I am just wondering if my great grandfather was in the 6th Dragoon Guards in South Africa during the 1901 census, would he have been registered on the census, or you just have to assume that his records from South Africa are the census????
His name is William Clark b 1879 in Clifton...
I think i have solved the issue of what regiment. I have been in contact with one of my dad's cousins and she says that William was in the 6th Dragoon Guards, but thinks they have now changed their name.
Would this help in finding his records?"?? Where would I start looking?
Thanks so much for all your help with this.
Firstly, the 1901 census record from the Robinson family is incorrect. That William Clark was born in Derbyshire and I know that my great grandfather was born in Clifton Fields, Bedfordshire. I am still trying to find a 1901 census for him, and...
Thanks for the reply.
I believe that he was in the army after 1901, or still in the army at that time. I believe he served in India and the Boer War.
I don't believe i have seen the robinson tree on ancestry, and no that isn't me, but i will check it out.
I will see if i can find out...
