Interesting theory.I had seen the record,but the grave does not feature in the transcribed Lledrod MIs to put it in context.The transcribed record(no original) reads as William(forename)Joseph Davies(last name).
There is an intestacy bond for an Elizabeth Davies in 1797 with son Richard,but again no MI to help.

Regards
Roger

The grave details that I saw say 'burial of William Davis 1799 ... relative, Joseph Davies'.

The Intestacy bond is for Elizabeth, the mother of William and Richard, ex Penbryn.

[Indenture, being a mortgage for 300 from Thomas Richards of p. Lledrod, co. Card., gent., to Elizabeth Davies of p. Sputty Ystrad Meirick, co. Card., widow, of two tmt's called Penybryn-merllyd and Bryn-merllyd in said p. Lledrod. Dated 1764.]

  [ Declaration by Richard Davies of Penbryn, p. Llanvihangel Lledrod, co. Card., that the grant made by an indenture was made on the condition that the said Richard Davies would release the said tmt's to his brother before 7 April 1773, and that the said Richard Davies had not paid the 650 consideration money, and was not to pay it but to hold the said tmt's on trust for the said William Davies.]

  Off Topic.
                 Yesterday I found that I have another Grandson. He turns out to be the son of my first son, Peter. The child that I had already attributed to him was in fact the child of his second marriage and the 'new' son was the child of his first marriage. He has a son too so, once again, I'm a great-grandfather! Gosh!

 I'm sure that the entry is basically correct. We've been working on this family for ages and the information that we've gleaned in all that time is contained in the entry. If you think that it's seriously flawed then we might as well pack up our trunks and go home. I'm ready to write the William  Davies connection into the tree too even though your criteria of having firm documented evidence for each and every person and event doesn't exist.
 I notice too that whenever I unearth a possible candidate for consideration you concentrate on disproving that connection without coming up, yourself, with an alternative. We're dealing with a population and place where only a handful could read and write, where there are no records of birth and marriage and where dates of death on gravestones, whether accurate or not, is all that we have. I work on instinct and common sense and, although I'm without access to the searches and expertise that you have, I haven't done too badly with my input on this topic.
 I genuinely feel that our race is run; we didn't actually win, mostly due to the lack of a finishing line and a referee but there we are, at least we had a go.
  I think that we can do no more on this Topic. Let's retire gracefully.
                                              Regards, Peter.
