d.11 Lodewyk Christiaan Johannes born 25/12/1852 in George baptised on Christmas Day the same year. On 5th June 1876 he married Margaret Taylor and they had 8 children. He was a blacksmith and farrier and his workshop was situated near the corner of Adderley and Market Street Oudsthoorn. Lodewyk was probably unaware of his second name, Christiaan, as his marriage certificate and the baptismal certificates of his children only reflect the names Lodewyk Johannes. These two names also appear on his death certificate. However, strangely enough his full names are recorded in the registers of the Cemetery Authorities in Cape Town. Lodewyk was on of several children and on of his brothers was named George Carl. He was also a blacksmith by trade an had his business in Mafeteng, Lesotho. He married a widow Engela Hugonda Meyer born 07/06/1856 and died 19/05/1914 and they had 4 children. A few years before his death Lodewyk was taken ill and as his illness could not be treated in Oudtshoorn he was moved to a hospital in Cape Town where he died on 23rd August 1915 of heart failure. He was baried in grave No. 1099C, United allotment, Maitland cemetery No2, 6th gate. The service was conducted by Rev. van der Heever. He named to of his sons;
e.1 John Looch
e.2 James PhilipLooch*09.07.1883 †17.07.1921 x Annie Coetzee children out of this marriage;
f.1 Ernest Michael Looch x Rachel van Vuuren Children out of this marriage;

i.2 Amanda
g.3 Ernest Michael (Mike) x Hester Kemp. Children out of this marriage;
h.1 Pieter Looch
h.2 Ernest Michael
g.4 Raynard
f.2 Annie Maggie Looch

The correct spelling of the family surname is Loock. Apparently during Lodewyk's lifetime the alternate spelling viz. Looch was used possibly due to the fact that most people in Oudtshoorn spoke Afrikaans and experienced difficulty in pronouncing the name correctly. Some of Lodewyk's children were baptized with the surname Loock whilst others were registered as Looch. However on Lodewyk's baptismal record the name is clearly shown as Loock. Two of his sons John and James registered their children as Looch whilst the others used the correct spelling when the births of ther children were registered.

d.11 Lodewyk Christiaan Johannes born 25/12/1852 in George baptised on Christmas Day the same year. On 5th June 1876 he married Margaret Taylor and they had 8 children. He was a blacksmith and farrier and his workshop was situated near the corner of Adderley and Market Street Oudsthoorn. Lodewyk was probably unaware of his second name, Christiaan, as his marriage certificate and the baptismal certificates of his children only reflect the names Lodewyk Johannes. These two names also appear on his death certificate. However, strangely enough his full names are recorded in the registers of the Cemetery Authorities in Cape Town. Lodewyk was on of several children and on of his brothers was named George Carl. He was also a blacksmith by trade an had his business in Mafeteng, Lesotho. He married a widow Engela Hugonda Meyer born 07/06/1856 and died 19/05/1914 and they had 4 children. A few years before his death Lodewyk was taken ill and as his illness could not be treated in Oudtshoorn he was moved to a hospital in Cape Town where he died on 23rd August 1915 of heart failure. He was baried in grave No. 1099C, United allotment, Maitland cemetery No2, 6th gate. The service was conducted by Rev. van der Heever. He named to of his sons;
e.1 John Looch

g.3 Ernest Michael (Mike) x Hester Kemp. Children out of this marriage;

h.2 Ernest Michael

f.2 Annie Maggie Looch

The correct spelling of the family surname is Loock. Apparently during Lodewyk's lifetime the alternate spelling viz. Looch was used possibly due to the fact that most people in Oudtshoorn spoke Afrikaans and experienced difficulty in pronouncing the name correctly. Some of Lodewyk's children were baptized with the surname Loock whilst others were registered as Looch. However on Lodewyk's baptismal record the name is clearly shown as Loock. Two of his sons John and James registered their children as Looch whilst the others used the correct spelling when the births of ther children were registered.

Surnames: Kuether
I'm very late to this forum, but wanted to see if this makes sense to anyone. Regarding Kuether's from Renville Cty. John F and Amelia settle circa 1875, they have children including Albert, Frank and Liz??? Then, as far as I can tell from my side of the family, Albert has 2 children, William F (presumably given his grandfathers middle name) and Walter. Walter has no children (but does take a bullet in WW2 and survives) and William has 1 child, William B(my grandfather). Does anyone have records of this?
