Thank you all,only heard this story today and anyone in the family who could verify are sadly all dead now.
Jennet died in 1933 at Llandybie she was a younger sister of my Grandfather William John Merriman.
I'm also tracing the Merrimans through the Glamorgan board ( Ystradyfodwg) as my Grandad was born there.
Kind regards
