Ellen Thomas nee Stephens
I'm trying to trace Ellen's death certificate. Ellen Stephens born 1911 Dowlais married Gwyn Ellis Thomas in 1933. Their son Illtyd Clement Thomas was born on 3rd March 1934 and Ellen died a short time after. But as no death record can be found, I don't know how soon after the birth she died. They lived in Bedwellty, so I believe and Ellen may be buried in Rhymney Cemetery. Gwyn later married Gwyneth Edwards in 1938 and they had a son David Huw Thomas in 1944. I would be grateful for any information on Ellen. She had many siblings, so someone may know the story. Many, many thanks in advance. Sally

Pritchard- Henry
I just learned a strange part to my lineage. I was informed that Henry Pritchard is really Henry Lewis. He was tossed from the Lweis family for his amorous relations with his future wife an Irish Catholic Girl believed to be Mary Hayes but I await confirmation on that surname. If the Lewis is genuine it would put him back in Tredegar on 1861 census. That WAS the birthtown of my great grandmother Mary Pritchard. If you can push yourself beyond this gross social miscue I would be very happy to hear any information possible.
