Hi Tessa,

Her name was Susanna Preston ADAMS b. 1872 in England, he married her on the
15th April 1896 in Pretoria, he deserted her after 2yrs of marriage, he was
last heard of in Durban in 1898, then he disappeared. although there was a
William MARDON who started work as a Storeman on the Natal Railways in 1898,
[as per Robin GRIFFITH] sadly I've not followed up on that lead.

Regards,
Bernie.
