Seeking all van Pletzen and van Pletsen descendants in South Africa

Posted: 15 Jun 2008 4:31PM GMT

Surnames: van Pletzen, van Pletsen, von Plessen, Sauer
Hi-

I'm currently working on putting together a chart of all van Pletzen/van Pletsen descendants in or from or not from South Africa. Legend says that all van Pletz(s)ens are descended from on Carl Johannes von Plessen, born 1795 in East Prussia. He stowed away on a South Africa-bound ship from Belgium, married Anna Susanna Sauer on 3 Aug 1823 in Graaf-Reinet and had nine sons who all had farms in the Dordrecht/Jamestown/Burghersdorp area of the Eastern Cape.

If any of this sounds familiar, or you have van Pletzen/van Pletsen (or even von Plessen) ancestors, please contact me and share what you can.

Thanks!
