My Muller Ancestor nightmare starts before 1862. Jan Johannes (Jacobus)
Muller, my wives great grandfather was born in 1862. We have 3 photos
from his brother with the following info written at the back:
1. H Müller Brother
2 Broer (Brother)
3. K(C)arel Andreas Müller
Apparently their was a sister as well - Louisa Catharina, named after
There was a story running in the family that Jan's mum died while he was
a small boy (1865 -1875) and that he grew up with Bekker people. There
is no info in the archives about Christiaan Johannes Müller or his wife
- Louisa Catharina (unknown surname).
I have searched the archives with more than 30 different spellings of
the name Louisa and about the same for Catharina - (not a joke. ) and found exactly nothing. The same with Christian and Karl Andreas.
Please, if you find anything on these Müllers, share it with me.
Kind Regards, Pieter Venter
