Enoch Evans of Monmouthshire, Wales. ALSO Lucy Evans, born Aug 1867 in Wales.
Looking for information on Enoch Evans, b. about 1811. His wife was Rachel ____. He may have died in Llanover, Blaenavon, Monmouth and possibly in 1850/51, before the 1851 census. Enoch is named as father of Elizabeth, who married Edward John Farr on 02 September 1852 in Pontypool, Monmouth. Siblings of Elizabeth include Mary Ann, Thomas, Henry, Edward, Margaret, Emma, Alfred. Also looking for Lucy Evans, born August 1867 in Wales (per U.S. census of 1900). She was the 2nd wife of Thomas Charles Farr and they married in Pennsylvania on 21 May 1895.

My name is James Farr.
My Farr lineage is from the Pontypool, Monmouth, Wales area:
1. William Farr (m) Catherine Williams
2. William Farr (m) Mary Edwards
3. Edward John Farr (m) Elizabeth Jane Evans (dau. of Enock Evans)
4. Thomas Charles Farr (m1) Eva Miller (m2) Lucy Evans
5. Albert Charles Farr (from m1) (m) Melinda Brown
6. Lynwood Albert Farr (m) Lura Annie Austin
7. James Bruce Farr
My Brown lineage is from the Midsomer Norton, Somerset, England area:
1. Henry Isaac Brown (m) Sarah Flower Hill (went by Turner because George Turner, b.1819, married her mother after she and her sister were born-whether he is the biological father not known)
2. Melinda Brown (m) Albert Charles Farr
3. Lynwood Albert Farr (m) Lura Annie Austin
4. James Bruce Farr
I am looking for the "missing links" for Farr, Brown, and Turner. There is a "Flower" link, because Sarah Flower Turner's middle name likely comes from her maternal grandmother, Mary Flower, who married Isaac Hill.
On my mother's side of the family are the surnames: Grindel/Grindell/Grindal, Austin, Benson, Blake, Snow, and Hopkins. Stephen Hopkins, who sailed on the Mayflower, and his daughter, Constant/Constance are my link to the Mayflower.
After gathering bits and pieces of information from the 1960s until now, I am now retired and have time to do some extensive research. Any information you would like to share would be greatly appreciated.
