We are are researching our family tree and have reached as far back as circa 1847-1850 , the birth of Charles Johannes du Plessis, married to Petronella Margaritha Botha.We are trying to trace the parents of Charles Johannes du Plessis. Children born from this union were Wynand Petrus , Pieter Willem , Pieter Wynand ,Phillip Rudolph . Wynand Petrus had 3 sons. "Flip" (Phillip ?)( Carltonville, worked on mines), Pieter and Charl Johannes 1/1/1897.Pieter was an attorney in Stutterheim and had a son, also Pieter, born 1944 , who I believe was/is also an attorney.Charles Johannes was a doctor who studied at " the Royal College of Medicine " in Dublin in Ireland and who had a practice in Brixton , Johannesburg before relocating to Walkerville, South of Johannesburg where he spent the remainder of his days.He had the following children. Peter, Charl, Faith , Joy and Gene or Jean(Peter, Charl , Gene are all deceased) Can anyone help with tracing the parents of Chales Johannes du Plessis ?.

I have a charles Johannes duPLESSIS born 10 Nov 1812 and baptised 31 Jan 1813 in Graaff-Reinett who had two wives.
He first married Johanna Cathatina Adriana VENTER on 8 Aug 1830 also in Graaff-Reinett.
He second married Johanna Hendrina Aletta YZELE but I don't know when.
He had 11 children and his 9th child was Charl Johannes duPLESSIS. I have no birth date for him and no more info. I also have no death date for the first wife so he could be the child of either one. If his father was married first in 1830 and he was the ninth child he COULD have been born around the right time for you. The death cert of the father would say.
