Osmers in South Africa

I think that I have at last been able to find out more info regarding the Osmers family in Tzaneen. I am led to understand that Julius Willem Osmers married Maria Matilda Birkholtz and that they were originally in Kingwilliamstown. I have not been able to find out how they arrived in Kingwilliamstown or how they got to South Africa from Germany although I am led to believe that several German soldiers were sent there to settle. Maria Matilda Birkholtz, I believe, was my greatgrandmother whom we called "Ouma" and she lived with Boet and Hennie in Tzaneen. I do not know when her husband Julius died. It has not been easy to sort all this out but I will keep trying. Regards Rose My email address is
