What happened to this child?
I am trying to find out what happened next to a child I found a baptism record for, when looking for someone completely different. Her name was Annie Gwendoline WILLIAMS, and she was born in Swansea on 25th April 1911. She was baptised at St. Jude's Church on 27th June 1911, and lived at 108 Rhondda Street. She would have had a brother Stanley, and sister Sylvia Doreen, known to me as Doreen. She never mentioned ever having had a sister. The father of these children, James Frederick WILLIAMS, (or Frederick James sometimes) was a merchant seaman, and he died either in an accident at sea, or illness, off Huelva, Spain in 1912, leaving the family with no support. He was probably away when Annie was born. The result of this was that the mother, Elizabeth WILKINSON, took the children back to Garston, near the docks in Liverpool, where her family ran a pub. Her father had died in 1904, and her mother in 1902, so the outlook must have been bleak. I cannot find a death record for this child, or any other information. It is sad to think she may go unremembered, or even not known about, or did she survive?
red mail James Herbert Powell & Elizabeth Walton, c.1910 onwards
I'm seeking any information from the family of JAMES HERBERT POWELL, who lived in The Mumbles and worked in the mines. He married a woman called ELIZABETH WALTON, and they had 6 children - Gladys, Gordon, Christopher Henry "Bob", Ronald Charles, Clarence and Mavis. Ronald Charles was my grandfather. I know that Gladys and Clarence stayed in the Swansea area where they had grown up, whilst the others moved into Herefordshire and Derbyshire. I think James Herbert Powell was in the Army during WWI - but have no idea what regiment he would have joined, or where he would have been. He was eventually buried in Swansea, alongside Elizabeth who had died in childbirth - allegedly to twins. Any and all information gratefully received.

red mail John Griffiths, Mason.
John Griffiths, a stonemason & born 1818-1820, married Sarah Barber Jones in 1844 in Swansea. Sarah's father was Thomas Barber Jones & a bankrupt butcher in Swansea who died in 1839.

Sarah, the mother born 1791 came from Pembrokeshire but am unable to find her surname or where. The 1851 Census says Aniston, Pembrokeshire but no such abbreviation for ???. Would love to find someone trying to trace my ancestors in Wales.

Looking for Peter Hall, probably born in Georgia, USA, and adopted there by Griffith Jenkin Hall and Catherine (Conboy) Hall. His birth date is unknown except that he appeared to be under 10 years on the 1891 Census of Swansea, but it can't be easily read on the original. His brothers were 28 and 20 years old - so perhaps he wasn't that young! Or was he perhaps the son of one of the older boys? There is one possible marriage, to Eliizabeth Mary Rees, in 1897 (which would of course make him older than we thought! We would appreciate any clues! Janice
