My name is Sheryl Tonks and live in Zimbabwe. My father Rodger Edward Tonks came to the then Rhodesia and was in the Rhodesian Army till 1985 from England. He left the army to join S.Essof and Sons in Bulawayo.We used to live in Triger House in Abercorn Street in Bulawayo and then we left to live in Parkland also in Bulawayo. From there we went to live Highmount, Bulawayo and then lastly he bought a house in Hillcrest, Bulawayo. My mother and father separated sometime in 1981 and by that time I was living with my mother who was then not feeling well. She subsequently died in 1984 and I was then forced into John Smale Children's Home for foster care. Whe he married again in 1981 he had a son by the name Shepherd who was a year younger than me. He died sometime between 1996 and 1997 and was cremated in Bulawayo. If somebody knows my father or any of his relatives can they e-mail me as I have no known relative to this day.
