well I wouldnt say they were an exciting bunch on my side but Evan is certainly a colourful soul and his father in law was a real character, I gather more than three thousand attended the old mans funeral.  I have the funeral and will stuff that is signed by Evan so it is nice to actually see how fluent he is.

we cud exchange pics ect if u wish, best regards

I know this is a long time since you first posted this, but I have just come across it. I am descended from Daniel and Hannah. They were my 3x great grandparents and their son John my 2x great grandfather!

Hi Lynda congratulations on your discovery. I have not done much family history over the last 5 years or so but I do know that the members tree that I belived to be correct (referred to earlier in this thread) was incorrect. Which led me to re consider Daniels parents. I contacted Carmarthen archives to see if they could search Llangeler for me and they responded that there was no birth matching the details I gave for Daniel or Hannah, but I have the following in my notes:

Daniel birth

'I have an 1804 parish baptism of ‘Daniel John son of David and Mary John’- no address given. Note: there are no Jones’ to be had, it seems they are all recorded as ‘John’ instead which is normal. Looks promising. Note - It could be the David Jones, Court that witnessed his marriage which was to come in 1828, and also bear in mind that Daniels address at time of marriage is Cwrt Mill, Pentrecwrt (I assume).'

Hannah birth
'Nothing on FindMyPast for Hannah jones of that year, confirmed by Carms archives too, just Hanna daughter of Thomas and Rachel Oliver and Anna daughter of Daniel & Mary John (see 1804 baptisms  in Daniels folder)'

Let me know if I can help with other bits.

Thanks

Steve

Hi Steve

Thanks for that information. It confirms what I have on my tree, always good to get someone else who is working on the same lines. It is so hard to get further back, particularly as I don't live in the area and can't access the records office myself.

Thanks again
Linda
