They also had two other boys (Carl Johan Gottfried * 13.4.1849 and Christian Friedrich Wilhelm * 4.11.1850), but no additional information is available. They had three children when they arrived in East London on board the 'La Rochelle' in South Africa on 28 August 1858. It seems three more children were born to them on their smallholding in Berlin (Lot 36, but subsequently renumbered to erf 62), where they spent the rest of their lives. Here Christian Friedrich died on 6 June 1877; his widow died in the Frere Hospital, East London, on 6 December 1893.
