Not sure about that marriage because a family tree with them on doesn't have a daughter Mary Ann  :-\

Around the time she was born there is only a Margaret/Maggie and she is at home 1881/1891/1901.

Although this is interesting - a younger sister Catherine Jane born c1894 ends up guess where in the 1940 US census - Scranton Pennyslvania  :D

Catherine Jane Jones - [Catherine Jane George]

23 December 1894 Wales  - 9 May 1954 -  Scranton, Lackawanna, Pennsylvania. Parents - George George - resided 334 N Sumner Ave. Scranton PA.  Informant Mrs E Miller.
Abington Hills Cemetery. South Abington Township Lackawanna PA.
Mother Jane Davis.

334 N Summer Avenue Scranton, Lackawanna, Pennsylvania 1940

Not sure how your welsh is, but searching the Welsh Newspapers online site shows that Thomas George graduated as Bachelor of Music in 1908 - known as Tom, faithful member of Bethel who joined in all activities, especially singing, left Glynneath in 1897. lost his parents when young and care of the family fell on him. In the US is an eisteddfod adjudicator and leads the singing in the Hyde Park church, Scranton (brief english version mentions he has Kidwelly roots)

Also a report of him and family returning to Resolven and Pontardawe in for a visit in July 1914

A couple of articles from 1914-18 refer to him as Prof Thomas Thorburn

Very interesting stuff. Can I please ask what search criteria you are using as I am having trouble finding any reference to him. Assuming you are referring to this site http://newspapers.library.wales/ . Thanks

There are articles on the link I gave in reply 8 - www.newspapers.com - it is a subscription site but if you scroll down to where it says OCR text - you can read snippets of what it says - play around with the words and info and you might be able to piece together more of the articles.
