South African Newspapers

Postby LintottM » Sun Apr 07, 2019 7:54 am

Hi, can anyone help/suggest where I might be able to find a newspaper story regarding the death of my great grandfather 'on rails' in south africa? I have the death notice for him, and assume it would have been reported? He was born in 1890 and died 25th March 1926 at 36 years old.

"Malcolm Johnston. The deceased was Scottish born and was a motor driver at 139 Railway Cottages, Germiston. The record states Malcolm's place of death was "on rails".
Birthplace: Stenhousemuir, Scotland
Father: Duncan Johnston. Mother Agnes Johnston.
Daughter named as Doreen Agnes Johnston (age 9)."
