The Common Room / Birth of William O(Oswald) Davies.
« on: Thursday 31 May 18 10:12 BST (UK)  »
I'm having great difficulty finding the Birth of a William O Davies.He was generally known as William Oswald Davies.The 1939 info gives his as an Oswald W Davies,living in the Cefn mawr,Wrexham area of  Denbighshire.this info gives a Birthdate of 05/09/1892.His death which I have had confirmed by a relative occurred,also in the Cefn Mawr area in 1963.he is buried in the local Rhosymedre Parish Churchyard.His death record gives him as a William J O Davies with an estimated Birthyear of 1893.

He was to marry a Lily Butler in 1920.This Marriage gives him as a William O Davies,this Marriage is said to have taken place in the Oswestry District of Shropshire.

Now I did strongly look at the Birth of a William John Oswald Davies given as taking place in Gloucestershire in 1892.However Family Tree info given on Ancestry would appear to rule this out.

I should also say that the later given Census info is very patchy to say the least!

Can anyone help me with a problem I'm having with my Mobile Phone please?When I make calls with my Phone I always have to use the "Speaker On" function.However this morning in trying to make calls the  response has been almost silent.The general Sound on the Phone is at maximum.One poimt to make is that I'm techno illiterate!Its an achievement for me to use the On/Off function.lolI'm told that there is something you can adjust in Settings as one or two kind people have been able to adjust something for me when this has happened in the past?

Flintshire / "Ellen"Evans Nee Jones Info.
« on: Friday 02 March 18 11:05 GMT (UK)  »
I'm looking for some info re my Great.Great-Grandmother "Ellen" Jones who was born in Holywell Flintshire in 18144.She was baptised to parents John and Elizabeth Jones at Holywell St James 04.06/1815.She married an Isaac Evans at Holywell St James in 1836.Isaac died in 1860 in Bagillt Flintshire.

Though I'm unable to find her in the 1861 Census,in the 1871 Census she shows as Evans living at Gadlys Lane Bagillt with her eldest son John born in c 1838.In the 1881 Census again living at Gadlys Lane with John,she shows as "Ellen" Williams a Widow.I have been so far unsuccesful in searching for her Marriage to a Williams 1871-1881?

« on: Monday 19 February 18 09:38 GMT (UK)  »
I am looking for further info on the person I have listed.I am unable to find perhaps Census entries or his inclusion on World War One Casualy lists.Pieces of info I have up to now show he was 37 when he died and that he may have been born in Ayrshire Scotland.I've also found that he was living with his wife a Mary A Jones at his enlistment in 1915 at 30,Dolydd Lane,Lower Cefn,Denbighshire.He is not included on the local Cefn Mawr War Memorial.

The Common Room / The Ups And Downs Of Family History Research.
« on: Monday 29 January 18 10:25 GMT (UK)  »
Last night I heard the very sad news of the death of my fourth cousin Kevin Michael Watkin at the premature age of 47,may he rest in peace.

This morning I had a message waiting for me on the Ancestry Website from a cousin from Australia.She told of a DNA match from relatives in Utah USA.I have to say that before her message this morning the link with her family was based on at best speculative intuition.

She is a descendant of the marriage of a Sarah Stephens and Thomas Hughes which took place at Ruabon Parrish Church Denbighshire on 17/02/1821.The Birth/Baptism of Sarah was rather sketchily recorded in the Ruabon Parish Registers as merely Sarah,daughter of Edward and Elizabeth,no Surname was given.

I have Sarah as the daughter of Edward Stephens and Elizabeth Phillips who in turn married,also at Ruabon 06/07/1789.The DNA match my cousin received was from descendants of the marriage of                                Edward's sister Elizabeth who married Joseph Dawson at Ruabon 25/01/1807.

Its great when you see confirmation of all your research like this.
