Best of luck with the search
Thanks Hanes, I'm getting there.  One other person who is the brother-in-law of my great grandfather was Robert Power. My great grandfather when he  married Robert's sister Annie Power lived at a farm owned by Geoffrey Power the father of Robert and Annie. The farm was in Fenor, near Tramore, County Waterford. Robert does not appear in the 1911 Irish Census but turns up in the 1911 Welsh Census. I believe he stayed in Swansea never married and died in 1957 at the age of 84 in the 4th quarter. Surely this must be him. I'm hoping there may have been an obit in the local newspaper. If there was which paper should I be looking for and how would I get access to the editions of 1957?


Name   Robert Power
Event Place   Swansea, Swansea, Glamorganshire, Wales
Age   38
Marital Status (Original)   Single
Occupation   General Labourer
Birth Year (Estimated)   1873
Birthplace   Fenor, County Waterford
Relationship to Head of Household   Boarder
Household   Role   Sex   Age   Birthplace
            
Norah Flanagan Norah Flanagan
Head   F   60   Dungarvan, County Waterford
Robert Power    Boarder   M   38   Fenor, County Waterford

Are you sure. I would be so grateful, if it's a problem then it is not a major issue if I don't get an answer.

Take Care
