Hugh Jones formerly of Machynlleth, Montgomery
« on: Wednesday 23 September 15 17:42 BST (UK) »
Can someone please help locate the following family on the 1871 census from the following details:

Sarah Jones wife 54 Machynlleth, Montgomery
Evan Jones son 24 Coal Miner Machynlleth, Montgomery
David Jones son 16 Coal Miner Gelligaer, Glamorgan

A gravestone in the old Capel Brithdir burial ground in memory of Hugh Jones who died in 1890 also remembers Hugh, dear child of Hugh and Sarah Jones who died April 8, 1869

Any details appreciated

hi groom
Thanks for the details on the 1871; the way I read the grave stone it appears the son Hugh may have died in Montgomery before the family relocated to Wales.  Can I ask for a look-up on the 1861 and 1851.

There are several that could be them in 1851, but were they married then?

There is a single Hugh Jones of the right age born Machynlleth, Montgomeryshire, but he is a farmer of 60 acres.

Hello Groom
Thank you so much; the 1861 details has the answer regarding the son Hugh; it appears he died when the family were in Blaina.
