Do you have a birth year and location? Location would be country, county and or city.

Is there a marriage year and location as well as a death year and location?
I have a document of one of their children. On the document, his mothers names is Johanna Christina Otto and his dad was James Edward Fuller. Their origin - Orange River  Colony, stated on his birth record.  Their childs birth record is just shown as William Frederik Fuller (6/1/1910)...I think the Namibia is incorrect, family member made an error. Birth registered in Potchefstroom and that he was a grain farmer. No occupation for her.

Thank you for the quick response. The Johanna Cathrina Otto I am looking for was apparently from Germany, but I think her birth  is at a later date. She was apparently from German North West (Namibia?) I think around 1870 or 1880?? as my grandmother Johanna Christina Fuller was born in 1902.

There is talk that she is from the "royal" side of the Otto's...not sure, as my dad always said their cousins were Lords/Lady's/counts/barons??......Her husband was James Edward Fuller and he was apparently from Orange River colony?

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Orange_River_Colony

The Orange River Colony was the British colony created after Britain first occupied (1900) and then annexed (1902) the independent Orange Free State in the Second Boer War. The colony ceased to exist in 1910, when it was absorbed into the Union of South Africa as Orange Free State Province.
