Looking for Joseph OBERMEYER Who Died In South Africa #southafrica #general

Dear Genners,

Joseph OBERMEYER was born in Baghdad in 1871 to the scholar Jacob OBEMEYER who was teaching then at the Alliance school there. He returned with his father to Vienna around 1881

where his father started a new family in 1886. He was spotted in Antwerp in 1890 and the family lore(on the Baghdadi side)has it that he travelled to South Africa where he died quite young and

alone. Did not find anything in JOWBR or in the South African National Archives. Does it ring a bell? Thanks

Jacob Rosen
