Thank you. Yes 3 Durrheim Families arrived with the German Settlers on the
Ships "Willhelmsburg" and "Johann Cesar" in 1859 - 2 were named Johann
(possibly father and son and families) At this stage think the Older Johann
was my G G G Grandfather. Have not come upon a Theodore but will keep you
posted as I gather more info.
