The Mitchell brothers were rather close and I was fortunate to know them all. My grandfarther was Ross James Mitchell who was married to "Suzy" Mitchell nee Ainslie also from Knysna. The youngest brother, Raymond passed away some 2 years ago in Knysna and was the last living of their generation.
Thank you for responding. I am verry chuffed with this site. If my information is correct the there were two sons Jossie and Ivan. So where do you fit in? The information that I have is that Suzie and these two sons were living in Port Elizabeth untill recently. Please feel free to communicate with me via e-mail so that we can exchange info. I have a wedding photo of Ross&Suzie but am battling a bit to get it onto the site.
I am looking for information on the parents of Hester Petronella Frederika Potgieter, born 3 October 1854 and her sister Sara Johanna Potgieter. Hester married Carl Friedrich Wilhem Appel and her sister Sara married Carl's brother August Simon Friedrich Appel.
Hester and Sara were born in Uitenhage, therefor I assume that their parents lived in Uitenhage at that time. Hester's father might be Hermanus Lambertus Potgieter, as her second son was named Hermanus Lambertus. Unfortunately there are numeroous Hermanus Lambertus Potgieters. I couldn't find one from Uitenhage.
