Hi Thys.

Please provide a link to the profile. No dates given , makes it a bit difficult to respond. Also tag your question South_Africa and South_African_Roots so that the project members can see it as well.

Was his surname Swart or Uys?  Is this really all info you have?

On Naairs

 

MHG   5315/72 SWART, DIRK CORNELIS UYS.

 

He was called Swart Dirk, because of his dark complection, Surname Uys. He bred the Drakensberger Cattle, also known as the Uysbees.  He started a little town called Wakkerstroom in Mpumalanga. He died in 1910. I belief I am a descendant of him.
I found what I was looking for, thank you for your interest.
