Thanks for looking Dassenvlei up on your atlas. You are very likely correct
and that Dasvlei and Dassenvlei are one and the same. The LACOCKs who lived
at Dassenvlei (may have been a farm) and who were christened in
Philadelphia, were related to the LOFTUS's who lived on the farm Dassenberg.
I do know that Philadelphia, Dassenvlei and Dassenberg were very close to
each other. Please also see my reply to Lynn MacLeod.
