Magdalena Maria Beyers married: 1885
Not the same person as his brother Hendrik 's wife Maria Magdalena Anna BEYERS due to two reasons: 1) The order of Hendrik's wife's names and her additional name 'Anna' and 2) Johan David 's death notice was signed by his wife as MM Leibbrandt in 1908, but MMA died in 1905. Remarkably the handwriting (signature) looks identical and all other factors, age etc, would tie in with given data. It is possible that they were sisters. Last child's name suggests that her mother's maiden name was DE LEEU
