Good day

I kindly need help with this 2 Steyn people who was married

The Jacobus Marthinus Steyn born apparently 1873/74 according to family search I can't find any other information on hhim/her, also very confusing as who's the male and who's the female, I'm afraid I might have the lot mixed up

Kindly can someone clarify Steyn 2197 and 2198

Regards

Hi Jaco

Their marriage record https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:QP7Z-54W1

indicates that the male Jacobus Marthinus was age 29 so born about 1863, and the female Jacobus Marthinus was 18, so born about 1874.  Not sure if this helps !

Here is the death record of the female Jacobus Marthinus

https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:Q2DP-7H73

which provides her parent's names

Profile Steyn-2197 already has father Jurgens Johannes Steyn as father, so this is the female born about 1874, and Steyn-2198 must then be the male.

Jaco, you do have the genders correct.

On https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Steyn-2197 her death notice (already shown on the profile) indicates that she died on 5 Aug 1901 and that her spouse was a POW at St Helena. Only men were sent to St Helena.

I added the Death notice of her father to his profile - https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Steyn-2299. From that you can now add her mother and siblings
