The Lilje-Beckröge Family of South Africa are distant cousins of Joan Luhrs.
The Rev. Johann Heinrich Christoph LILJE (1833-1920) is the patriarch of the family, coming
to Natal from Germany in 1868, as a missionary to the Zulu people, after completing his studies
at the Hermannsburg Seminary and being ordained in Hannover. Anna Caroline BECKRÖGE (1847-1935) went to Africa to marry him in 1871. There were ten children of this marriage.
This set of pages uses an "hour-glass" approach to show three generations of
the descendants of JHC Lilje and his wife, Anna Caroline Beckröge in South Africa
... as well as the known ancestors of each in northern Germany. Living descendants
are "privatized." The information presented here is based largely upon the work of
Rev. Dieter Reinhard Lilje and Werner Beckröge ... as well as some research performed
by Margrit Meyer and this website editor. For further information about the LILJE
descendants, see Rev. Lilje's 2017 e-book "Lilje -- 150 Years in South Africa."
Additional information about the Lilje family in both South Africa and America
may be found ...
