Noted events in his life were:

Occupation: Farmer and Accountant. John Alexander Blyth was first a farmer and then an accountant in Beaufort West. His Death Notice MOOC KAB 6/9/655 Ref 3113 says he was a bookeeper.

Military Service: Survivor of Rorke's Drift (?), 1879.

Family: At the request of his brother William Low Blyth who lost his wife and two children from Diptherea, he adopted his surviving son George Clarence Blyth who thereafter lived with them in Bird St Beaufort West.

Alt Birth: 1860. His Death Notice records that he was 49 years and 11 months old, and as his death date of 22 November 1910 is confirmed, there is an alternative date for his birth which is 15 Dec 1860.

Historical: The BLYTH's lived at 43 (or 39) Baird St. for many years, but the name of the street was changed to Bird St for no known reason as yet. After the death of May BLYTH, the last resident of the house, it was demolished and a police station erected on the property.

Baptism: 9 Source of record Microfilm 1560855 Item23 Ref 19 Loc 4652 Transcribed Ellen Stanton

Alt Birth: According to Robert Blyth he was born in Worcester, Cape Province, South Africa.

Historical: John Alexander BLYTH (the eldest son of David Henderson Blyth) was born in Worcester, Cape Province in 1861. There is uncertainty about this as his parents were already living in Beaufort West having married there the previous year. He spent much of his life in Beaufort West. He worked first as a farmer and later as an accountant (book-keeper?) in the town.
There was a suggestion that he had won a medal at the Battle of Rorke's Drift in 1878 when he would have been barely seventeen. Subsequent investigation by Ralph Anderson has shown that he was not at Rorke's Drift. However he was connected with the Beaufort West Volunteer Rifles (a sort of home guard regiment )and was awarded the Cape of Good Hope Service Medal. He died at his residence in Beaufort West at the relatively young age of 48 and is noted as a book-keeeper by profession.
He had 4 children for whom data is available but Penny Sheppy has listed Dulcimer, Corinne and Ermine as three younger sisters for whom we have no details.

John married Cornelia Louisa Weeber [962], daughter of Marthinus Johannes Weeber [846] and Johanna Catharina Magdalena De Jager [983]. Cornelia was born in Jul 1852 in Beaufort West South Africa, died on 26 Mar 1938 in Beaufort West South Africa aged 85, and was buried in Beaufort West South Africa. Another name for Cornelia was Nellie Weeber.

Noted events in her life were:

Alt Birth: Jul 1852 ?, Beaufort West South Africa. MOOC KAB 6/9/5062 58803 The Death Notice states she was a widowed housewife residing at 43 Bird St. Beaufort West and died in the Beaufort West Hospital at age 85 years and 8 months which makes her estimated birth date as July 1852. In her Will, copied but excluding its reference number, she left Erf 43 Bird St. as an asset in her Estate.
There is an image of her birth certificate that is not completely recorded and omits her actual birth date,

34. George Kinnear Blyth [845] (David Henderson7, John Balfour1) was born on 14 Jun 1863 in Beaufort West South Africa,9 was christened on 20 Sep 1863 in Wesleyan-Methodist Church, Beaufort West,9 died on 24 May 1912 in 120 Kerk St. Heidelberg, Transvaal, Southern Africa aged 48, and was buried in Heidelburg Old Cemetery, Transvaal, South Africa..

Noted events in his life were:

Alt Birth: 9 Source of record Microfilm 1560855 Item 23 Ref 29 Loc 4655 Transcribed Ellen Stanton

Alt Place Name: MOOC KAB 6/9/861 Ref 565 gives a definite place of death.

Occupation: MOOC KAB 6/9/861 Ref 565 DN says he was an accountant and agent.

Historical: George Kinnear BLYTH was an accountant. it is not clear how he came to be in the Transvaal but the discovery of gold may have had something to do with it. He practised as an accountant and legal agent in Heidelberg. He died there in 1912 and is buried in the old cemetery alongside his young son Heinrich Wilhelm. (CP note that he died at Erf No 12a in Beaufort West is clearly incorrect.)
For unknown reasons his father also moved to Johannesburg from Beaufort West. I suspect that his father moved to Johannesburg towards the end of the 1890's. He died in Johannesburg in 1908 and I have correspondence between my great grand mother Sophia (living in Johannesburg) and my grandfather in Heidelberg. (There is also a comment from Chris Pattinson that he may have rented a farm called Fairfield/Fairview on the boundary of Ladismith village before he went to Johannesburg).
My grandmother trained as a teacher and went to teach in the Transvaal. I suspect that she must have taught in Heidelberg where my grandfather practiced. (It may also be that my grandparents met in Ladismith when she was still a schoolgirl and that is why she went to teach in the Transvaal) They married in Ladismith in 1895 and settled in Heidelberg.
My Father listened to his mother's account of his father's death. He was apparently diagnosed as having liver failure but my father is convinced, from his mother's account that the cause of death was a ruptured appendix. Surgery for that was pretty heroic in those days.

George married Anna Emilie Becker [949], daughter of Heinrich Wilhelm Becker [2808] and Hermina Maria Nefdt [2809], on 5 May 1896 in Ladismith, Cape Colony, Southern Africa. Anna was born on 18 Mar 1875 in Ladismith, Cape Colony, Southern Africa and died on 7 Jun 1950 in Church St. Ladismith Cape aged 75. Another name for Anna was Anna Emily Blyth.

Noted events in their marriage were:

Noted events in her life were:

Alt. Birth: Abt Mar 1875, Ladismith, Cape Colony, Southern Africa. Her Death Notice says she was 75 years and 3 months old at death, thus indicating a probable birth date of March 1875.

Property: 7 Jun 1950, Heidelberg South Africa. She left the following property :-Erf 504 Arnoldi St. Heidelberg; a fifth share of Lots 945, 975,1131, 1140, 1236 & 1237; that portion known as Rensburg of the farm Houtpoort No 309 District Heidelberg, each lot=83 sq. roods.
