Pitt Family connection

Phillis Pitt
d.18.7.1898
Burgersdorp
Cape Province
William Freemantle
d.19.12.1868
Burgersdorp Farmer
and Blacksmith
Also: one son, William b 1836 who died on 18.10.1850 aged 14 and was buried in the same grave as his mother Sarah Roberts Pitt, in the Baptist section of the old Grahamstown cemetery, plot number BD9. Date of Sarah's birth on gravestone 23.12.1800 probably in error. ?

Their issue is recorded here

Note: ? With Sarah' s date of birth, I have decided to follow the advice given by the genealogist in Grahamstown, who said that the parish register was most likely correct and the gravestone date came about because she was somewhat older than her husband and it was quite common for ladies in those circumstances to deduct a year or three!!
