2. [TPS] Early mining & game capture [1]
By Jack Carruthers During 1894 Arthur Ayre, while out hunting, unexpectedly came across an ancient working and pegged the Eldorado mine, 850ft long and 25ft deep. Like the Ayrshire the ore body lacked quartz. Early in '95 my old friend Koos van Staden and family reached Salisbury with transport and settled. I gave him my farm near Eyre's Poort on the old Lomagundi road for his consideration he had shown me in the past. He was contracted, at #25 per head, to catch young game for Mr Rhodes, destined for his
3. [TPS] RUBINSTEIN Family [1]
Hi, I have recently started researching the Rubinstein family history in Rhodesia. So far I have traced the gravestones of Ephraim Rubinstein (c1833-1927) and Molly Rubinstein (c1858-1932) - relationship unknown - who were buried in Harare Pioneers cemetery. I have also found monumental inscriptions for several Rubinsteins in the Bulawayo Jewish Cemetery. These include Louis Aaron Rubinstein (c1882-1966), who married at Bulawayo synagogue in 1914, and Benjamin Robert Rubinstein (c1880-1944) who also marr

Hi, Where would I get more info on this Cpt F Fitzgerald if this is the only info I have on him? Is there a place I could find out which group of men he was from within the Shangani Patrol? The only Rhodesian military history website I have found doesn't have details. He is not on the early pioneer lists. -----Original Message----- From: rhodesian-pioneers-bounces@rootsweb.com [mailto:rhodesian-pioneers-bounces@rootsweb.com] On Behalf Of Ian & Michelle Carruthers Sent: 07 January 2008 06:18 AM To: rhodesia

Thank you very much for this. He was one of my grandmother's uncles. Originally from Eastern Cape and 1820 settler stock - think. Now have to do the paper work - we were taken to see the Memorial as children and I in turn took my children - bit it is still oral family history so far which may be wrong.

7. [TPS] Mining in Filabusi/Gwanda - By Oswald Botton [1]
After the Matabeleland campaign gold mining once again thrived. The hardy old prospectors who were two-a-penny by then returned to their old holes in search of gold bearing reefs. When they had won sufficient fine gold from their labours to warrant a trip to town, they would descend on the Banks who purchased the bullion. Needless to say these hard and heavy drinkers made the most of their presence in town. As a rule it was only lack of funds that compelled them to return to the bush. The Botton's Killarn

"Captain FREDERICK FITZGERALD, commanding No 1 Troop of the Victoria Rangers, and killed with Major Wilson, was an exceedingly popular officer, who had done excellent work throughout the campaign, being several times mentioned by Major Forbes for special services. Before the war broke out he was Sub-Inspector of the British South Africa Company's Police at Victoria, and after the Victoria incident took a prominent share in the organisation of the Victoria Rangers, receiving the command of the senior Troop.

Replied to Moyra offline, sending her the two D.R's that I did find, and the following info: Did you notice that there are two indexes in which SMITHs might appear; the one named "Death indexes Surnames S" (which you obviously found), and this other one named "Death indexes Surnames A-Z": https://familysearch.org/pal:/MM9.3.1/TH-1-14686-45009-55?cc=1837900&wc=7118 302 I found D.R 751/62 for SMITH, Frederick Johannes W., and from that the D.R for his wife too.

Moyra, >From my experience notes like MISC and ADM must point to some other ledgers, that perhaps haven't been digitized. Some of those ledgers have been scanned as double pages, showing the front side of one D.R. and back side of the previous sheet. If your zoom-factor is set just to view one page you might be missing the adjacent page. If you say where you found the references that you have found, I'll certainly have a look. Barry
