South Africa SIG #SouthAfrica GRAVE search in JOHANNESBURG: Isaac Baruch Hoffman/Owseiowitz #southafrica

Dear Genners,
I need help finding the gravestone or grave-record of my GGGrandfather in
Johannesburg, South Africa.
His name was Isaac Baruch HOFFMAN (or OWSEIOWITZ/OVSEYIOVICH if buried
under his pre-immigration name). His Hebrew name should be Itsak Baruch ben
Azrael.
He immigrated to Johannesburg >from Silale, Lithuania in 1889, one of the
first Jews on the Johannesburg gold reef. He died just 4 months after
arrival of dysentery (hence 1889 or 1890).
He is supposedly buried in the "27th grave in earliest Johannesburg Jewish
cemetary".
Any help appreciated.
Regards,
Donald Press
