Jonathan Harrison miner llandidloes
« on: Wednesday 03 May 17 12:27 BST (UK) »
Hi
Would anyone have or know how to obtain information on Jonathan Harrsison mining career in llandidloes

He was born 1798 Pembrokeshire married in 1835 in iom and came to Penny Green llandidloes around 1838 as children's baptisms leaving around 1842

Moving to Shropshire and becoming lead mining captain at snailbeach mines

I know from his obituary he worked at the Gifnon and bryntail mines

Any help direction would be fantastic

Fiona
