red mail Looking for information about Elizabeth Morgan nee Evans
Elizabeth Evans was my great grandmother. Born in one of the hamlets around Talybont, Ceredigion in 1858, she married my great grandpa Lewis Morgan who, like his father before him was village shoemaker. Eventually they ended up living in Leicester House in that village, and had a large family, including my grandfather Idwal, who was born in 1887. However, I want to find out a bit more about Elizabeth and her family, as I was never told much about her. Researches so far suggest that she was born at Staylittle near Aberystwyth. In the 1871 she (as far as you can ever be sure with a name like Elizabeth EVANS in Wales) is a servant at the home of Mary Rowlands at Melindwr (4 miles east of Aberystwyth). by 1881 she is still single, and a general servant, but now living at Henllys (also the one near Aberystwyth/Talybont) with her parents- she is noted as 'daughter of head of household'. She seems to have had at least one sibling- Morgan Evans B, 2Q 1855, died 1Q 1916. In 1881 he was a lead miner aged 26. He married someone called Catherine and they had children John M. b 1889, Jenkin E. b 1891, Elsie Jane b 1898 and Jacob Penry b 1900. If anyone recognises any of this, I'd love to hear from them.

David Rhys (Reese) Jones
Looking for details on family of DRJones. He was reportedly born @1825 in Talybont and was, in biographies, baptised by a Pastor Simon James in 1826. He went on to be ordained in 1833 in Machynlleth and eventually ended up in Pennsylvania, America. We think he had a brother, Walter, who made a visit to America and then returned to Wales. He had quite a good reputation as a preacher and headed the Welsh Baptist Church in Plymouth, Pa. Any clues as to his family, education, marriage date, etc., would be welcome. We have a number of his locations where he led the Welsh chapels, including London and Liverpool. He is my great-great-grandfather on my mother's side. Married a Sarah Ann Williams, b. 1833 in South Wales. Had five children.
CLAYTON or CLEATON of Talybont
Information required on the birth, marriage and death of Mair or Mary CLAYTON or CLEATON born about 1854-55 probably somewhere in north Cardiganshire. Her father was Edward Clayton - see serarate entry - and her mother was Elizabeth. She married(c1875) David Jones, who was born about 1855 in the Penrhyncoch area of north Cardiganshire. A daughter, Elizabeth Jane, was born in 1877. Any information on Mair Clayton and her family would be much appreciated.

Elizabeth's father Richard was a shoemaker and their family had been living there for some time.
