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




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.
