red mail William Eastman and Catherine Hoey
Can anyone help me with information on William Eastman and Catherine Eastman (nee Hoey). They had a son, also William, born on 30 September 1884 in Picton Place, Carmarthen, Wales, who was baptized on 26 October 1884 at St Michael's Catholic Church in Carmarthen. I can find no obvious matches in any censuses, nor any BMD records for William and Catherine. William Sr was in the Royal Artillery and in 1884 was a Battery Sergeant Major. The lack of information may be because he was in the Army and moved around. Any information at all would be very gratefully received - I have a few brick walls that need to be torn down! Many thanks, Jackie.
red mail Thomas Walters/ Mary Morgan

red mail Davies Family History
I am endeavouring to find descendants of my late fathers uncle, John Davies born in Pontardulais in 1874. To give you some background; my father (Christopher John Davies) was born out of wedlock in Llanelly in December 1912. He lived until 1939 (when he was called up during the emergency of Word War 2) at 7 Yspitty Row, Bynea. I have discovered that my paternal grandmother, a Margaret Ann Davies died on 14 September 1937 and is buried in the Box Cemetery in Llanelli. In the 1891 Census, my grandmother, Margaret Ann is listed (as Maggie) living at 7 Yspitty Row, Llanelly in the Hamlet of Berwick and the Parish of St. Michaels and also show is her parents, John and Mary, together with her brother John and her sisters, Eleanor and Catherine. I have discovered through my research that Eleanor and Catherine, both were married with no children and enjoyed a full life. There was also an adopted brother, called Emrys, who never married and died sometime during the 1940s. Unfortunately, I can find no trace whatsoever of my grandmothers brother John. John, according to the 1891 Census was aged 17 and was born in Pontardulais. I had thought that he may have been killed in World War 1, however, a school friend of my father, told me that my father used to visit an uncle who lived somewhere in the locality at a smallholding called Ty Draw, and this can only have been John. In view of my limited success in tracing the records of my grandmothers brother, John, I nonetheless feel reasonably confident that John may have gone on to have a family and that his ancestors (and my distant relatives) may be alive and living somewhere in or around Carmarthenshire and I would be keen to make contact, or, the very least find out when John died. Any help, lead or guidance that anyone can give me, however limited, would be dearly appreciated.
