I was searching the web for help in finding names in Zimbabwe.
and was hoping that you might have the info I need. I am looking
for records of a David Cromar born about 1917, and died in the
80's - he could even have died in England because his daughter
moved there and he went over to them. We don't know where he was
born, but he attended Pietermaritsburg College, and was captain
of the cricket team and did well in sports there. David was married
after WWII to an Italian lady; during the war he was imprisoned
and he escaped and a family put him up and he married the daughter.
They moved to Bulawayo, and later moved to Salisbury. They had
three children: a married daughter named Vivienne, we think her
married name is Seagrave; a daughter named Barbara (the eldest)
- I don't think she married; and a son who died in the 60's in
Rhodesia. We think he was a student in high school (possibly Churchill
High) when he died. Many thanks for any light you may be able
to throw on this. Regards, Jackie Roy
