Further to my message of 6th Jul 2003 (on message board below) I have obtained a letter written by or for my grandmother to the Assistant Provost Marshall of Pretoria on 3rd April 1902 in which she requests permission to travel to Johannesburg to visit relatives for one week. At the time she was working as Lady Assistant to Messrs Johnston & Co, Church Street, Pretoria. She signed herself "Hetty Oliver". I must assume that she was not married at this time and probably lived in Pretoria.
Is Messrs Johnston & Co still in existence?
Does anyone in Pretoria or Johannesburg (or elsewhere for that matter) have any elderly relatives who might have mentioned Hetty Oliver or Hetty McNally?
Please get in touch if you have any of these answers.
Thanks in anticipation
