Scope and content

Photograph of the plaque in memory of Judel Mehr, brother of A.L. Meyer and Sarah Beinashowitz (nee Meyer). Judel Mehr was the eldest child of Leizer Wolf and Roche Ziviah Meyer (nee Gardner) from Yanishok (Joniškis) Lithuania. He was the first family member to come to South Africa. He died from 'consumption' (tuberculosis) in Graaff Reniet, Cape Colony on the 26th October 1899. A tombstone was not erected on his grave as apparently the grave was not marked on the day of burial due to shelling of the town during the Anglo Boer War. A memorial plaque was erected by his siblings, fifty five years later, on the 29th June 1954.
