Re: Cossers in South Africa
I live in Toronto, Canada. My father was born in 1908 (I'll have to check this date to be sure) in South Africa (Walter Geoffrey Cosser). His father, Walter Francis Cosser, went to South Africa from England and married Mary Willis Henderson. She was born in South Africa (her parents came from Scotland). They moved to England when my father was five and to Canada the year after that. I have two siblings who live in Canada. We met a relative from South Africa after my father died who was descended from his cousin who had also gone out to South Africa as a young man. Her name was Sandy (Cosser)Solomon. I have lost track of anyone else (also of her). Would appreciate any info. you may have on the South Africa relatives. My father was born in Boksburg (Johannesburg). He was an only child. We have a fairly full genealogy of his side of the family going back in time, but don't know about the relatives who remained in South Africa. There was another cousin as well, but he is said to have moved on to somewhere else, perhaps Japan?
