I purchased an ABO in the name of: Burger J D J VAN DEN BERG. This name is not on the Medal Roll book of Forsyth
However on the Anglo-Boer War Museum database are two entries for POW sent to Bermuda (both captured 30 July 1900 at Fouriesburg) for Jan Dirk Johannes VAN DEN BERG (POW 10463 aged 21) and Jan Dirk Johannes VAN DEN BERG (POW 10462 aged 38), they are listed as serving in the District of Ladybrand, specifically Nooitgedacht (this farm is also in the database listed with the same owners name)
It would appear that the Forsyth book has a spelling error, they are also therefore not duplicates? Any views?
You might have a problem there Brett - there are a number of men, all with the exact spelling of names as Jan Dirk Johannes Van den Berg who were born in and around either 1862/63 and 1879/1880/1882 - all of which fit neatly with the dates you provide.
As these are very much family names which are repeated every generation - you might find that this is either father and son, uncle and nephew, or some other combination e,g, cousins.
Addresses for the above range from Ladybrand to Rustenburg to Carolina to Krugersdorp so it's a bit of a jigsaw puzzle trying to piece them together.
Are there not more details on documentation perhaps accompanying the Vorm B's?
