Hello  :)

Was Catherine born in Penygraig or in Llanelli, and 1898 or 1899? Have you found her on the 1901 census or 1911 census?

I haven't found a marriage of Ceinwen and Emrys at Llanelli yet. Do you have any idea of surname, which was Owen/s please?

Perhaps a relative will see this thread and be able to tell you more about the family.

Kind regards
Morgan
