Hi Becky & Russell

Thanks for these postings....didn't ask for the KING name because
Russell beat me to it, but they are relevant so many thanks.....and in
the spirit of giving.....

The Free Church Register, Bedford records the birth of Samuel Thomas
KING as 23 October 1863 and his baptism on 6 Dec 1863 (Ref: CORY MS 17
595, Baptism Register: Bedford Free Church (Presbyterian), Bedford,
Eastern Cape, South Africa, Pg 7) by Rev Edward Solomon.

I have a dob for Raymond (spelt Raemond in the register) of 24 Sept
1893 at Kaga's Mondt, Adelaide.....so he must have died sometime in
January 1895 if he was 16 months old. He was baptised on 31 Oct 1893
in the parlour of the ministers home by Rev P Davidson as recorded in
the Adelaide Union Church Register (CORY MS 18 834, Baptism Register
1864 - 1954: Adelaide Union Presbyterian Church, Adelaide, E Cape,
South Africa, Page 11 - Entry 198.)

His siblings were:
Gladys Robinson KING born 19 Dec 1891 at Maybank, bapt 4 Jan 1892 at
home (Ref: CORY MS 18 830, Baptism Register 1864 - 1892: Adelaide
Presbyterian Church, Adelaide, E Cape, South Africa, Page 16.) Gladys
was apparently married to a Mr Hockley......anyone know who he is??

Leslie Samuel KING born 2 Feb 1895 at Kaga's Mondt, Adelaide, bapt 14
Feb 1895 by Rev Thomas Meikle (Ref: CORY MS 18 834, Baptism Register
1864 - 1954: Adelaide Union Presbyterian Church, Adelaide, E Cape,
South Africa, Page 11 - Entry 219.)

William Slater KING born 1896 and bapt bet June-Oct 1896 and recorded
in the register, but with no details. (Ref: CORY MS 18 834, Baptism
Register 1864 - 1954: Adelaide Union Presbyterian Church, Adelaide, E
Cape, South Africa, Page 13 - Entry 234 (no details).

Wesley Robinson KING born 31 Jan 1899 at Adelaide, bapt 13 Jul 1899 at
home (Ref: CORY MS 18 834, Baptism Register 1864 - 1954: Adelaide
Union Presbyterian Church, Adelaide, E Cape, South Africa, Entry 259.)

Basil Robinson KING born 28 Apr 1900 at Wagon Drift, bapt 12 June 1900
at home (Ref: CORY MS 18 834, Baptism Register 1864 - 1954: Adelaide
Union Presbyterian Church, Adelaide, E Cape, South Africa, Entry 273)
by Thomas Meikle.

Oswald Robinson KING born 31 Aug 1902 at Weltevreden nr Adelaide, bapt
11 Nov 1902 at Union Church, Adelaide (Ref: CORY MS 18 834, Baptism
Register 1864 - 1954: Adelaide Union Presbyterian Church, Adelaide, E
Cape, South Africa, Entry 308.) by Rev A Leith Grant.

Mary Robinson KING born 8 July 1908 at Adelaide, bapt 28 Sept 1908 at
home (Ref: CORY MS 18 834, Baptism Register 1864 - 1954: Adelaide
Union Presbyterian Church, Adelaide, E Cape, South Africa, Entry 359
by Rev A Leith Grant.

Agnes Robinson KING born 30 Jan 1910 at Elandsfontein, Bedford, bapt
21 Mar 1910 at home (Ref: CORY MS 18 834, Baptism Register 1864 -
1954: Adelaide Union Presbyterian Church, Adelaide, E Cape, South
Africa, Entry 370) by Rev William Struthers.

Can anyone confirm the name of the husband for Millie GLADWIN......I
have a Winnie KING married to an unknown GLADWIN and I think this is
the same person?

WEBBER - Sarah Elizabeth....wonder whether this was the transcribers
notes "widow of H.D."??? William was very much alive after she died as
a result of complications in child birth and went on to marry Emily
Locke NELSON on the 2 Oct 1878 in Grahamstown at Trinity Presbyterian
Church. As the MI says...he died on 13 Jan 1885. Full names are:
William Henry David WEBBER.

Happy Holidays everyone
Tessa
