Presidential Likeness

Is there a family resemblance? A little known fact about a long-serving caretaker under my ministry (surname Steyn) is that he was a descendant of the last president of the Orange Free State (surname Steyn). The images show the two Steyns side by side, although they are separated by a hundred years of history (you may click on the images to enlarge). Caretaker Steyn told me that he would visit the grand-daughter of President Steyn, when she was in high old age. A modest man, Caretaker Steyn seldom spoke of his connection with President Steyn.
