where is Williams family?
« on: Sunday 24 September 17 18:10 BST (UK) »
Hi,

for a very long time now, i have tried to do as much research as i can on William Roberts.

his gravestone is in St Marys, Conwy and when i received his death certificate it said his father is John Roberts? now if i've researched this correctly, his family are -

John Roberts 1812 (Dad)
Mary Roberts 1812 (Mum)
Thomas Roberts 1844-1921 (Brother)
& then there was William 1846-1862.


i can't find where his family are buried at all? he is buried by himself and i don't think any of his family are buried in the same church.

please PLEASEEE can somebody help me, surely there has to be someone in this world who knew this family? i have attached williams gravestone to this post.


THANK YOU x

i don't know, i don't know the years of when they died or where.

i do know they lived on Water Street, Bangor for a few years and then on Mount Pleasant, Conwy for a very long duration afterwards?

thank you,
Lauren

There are a couple of death possibilities for John but his birthyear differs to the one shown on the 1871 census.   

1851 - 1813
1861 - 1812

Would they have been the exact years? William died in 1862 and John had been on Williams death certificate so I know he was definitely alive from 1812/13 to 1862 .. :(
