Hello Gadget,

It could be. I know nothing about the family.

I got hints on Ancestry regarding the children.

Most Ancestry hints are wrong or misleading. Her children were David and John - see my posts and look at the 1881, 1891, 1901 and 1911 censuses.

I have spent a lot of time this week trying to ascertain the ancestry of a direct ancestor. The Ancestry hints were 'rubbish'. The trees that are dna matches are poor or non-existent.

Hi Dewi

I look at them but I tend to  rely, for accurate info, at BMDs, parish records, censuses, wills, etc.  Like you, many of my ancestors were from Denbighshire, Merionethshire and Montgomeryshire, so Welsh wills, tithes,  newspapers and other info from the National Library at Aberystwyth and the county archives and have been very useful. Also, the Clwyd FHS have a wide range of info. In the 'olden days', I used the Family History centres (when you could order various record sets)  and archives.

Here's a piece on hints:

I think you might have been taking them at face value. Hints are not a replacement for  available records and thorough checking and double checking of everything.
