I am trying to trace some details of my grandmother Elise Schmitz who was in Salisbury in the early 1890s. As there are no other family members mentioned I am intrigued as to how she got to Salisbury and what she was doing there?. She married my grandfather Maurice A Freeman ( who was in the Pioneer Column) on 4th Oct 1893.
In Jessie M Llyod's ( Rhodesia's Pioneer Women ( 1859-1896) she is mentioned as Mrs Maurice Freeman Nee Schmidt. Mentioned in the "Mashonaland Herald and Zambesi Times" of 13th Aug 1982 as being one of the seven ladies present at the first dance hels in Mashanaland given by Mr Stanfords  Brown. Mr Marsall Holes, Resident Magistrate, officiated at her marriage, the second in Salisbury.
If anyone has any more information than this I would be very grateful to hear from them.
