About John Benjamin Moodie, SV1b1c11

"South Africa, Natal Province, Civil Marriages, 1845-1955," index and images, FamilySearch ( : accessed 12 May 2015), John Benjamin Moodie and Margaret Agnes Brown, 29 Oct 1885; citing Newcastle, Natal, South Africa; 00367; National Archives and Records Service of South Africa, Pretoria; 1,259,209.

John Benjamin Moodie (brother of Groot Tom Moodie) and his wife Margaret Agnes joined the Moodie Trek with their two children Julia Sarah Moodie and James Gray Moodie. After a difficult journey which took much longer than anticipated there were problems within the party and, at Fort Victoria, two groups formed; Dunbar Moodie and Groot Tom led one group to Gazaland (as per the original plan), while John Moodie and John Nesbitt led the breakaway group to Salisbury and then on to Umtali. John died in 1900.

DN 7/73 gives names of his wife and children.
