Thank you Shaun, I just did a quick break down of what happened to him. I have copies of his will, his daughter Elizabeth stated no other living persons,didn't know the name of his mother, yet she lived with her when his first wife died, his Son Evan was also living in Cardiff. There is a lot more to his story, and his trip back to Cardiff. Are you related?

After years of searching, Thank you to the NLW, Wales newspapers on line - Evan Wide, was having an affair and ran off to South Africa, the mistress divorced and they wed in Southampton before boarding the ship. Due to the disgrace of this affair he was asked to resign from the police force. He became I believe a stretcher bearer during the Boer war. Hope he was happy with his new life as he seemed to have lost everything.

To complete a back up you have to save your data from your old program to a gedcom  - File, export, entire file, "Save as type"  (at the bottom)gedcom( save to USB easy!). Install new program to new computer and open up your usb gedcom. This will install on new computer and new program.
Just in case!!!
My problem that I had, doing a backup from Family Tree maker 2005 to gedcom. Opening up FTM 2011  downloading gedcom to FTM 2011 I had missing files and a lot of media missing. (doesn't tell you what is missing) Attempted several times, with the same results. After a lot of research and trial and error - I downloaded a free Trial of The Master Genealogist.  Uploaded my gedcom in master Genealogist, perfect! no files or media missing. I then did a back up to gedcom in the Genealogist, transferred it over to FTM 2011 again perfect. FTM 2011 was dreadful and ended going back to 2005. I have tried several genealogist programs, I just don't like them 2005 is simple and easy. I had just over 15,000 persons at that time, something like 175 persons missing!!! Good Luck, I'm again back in the market looking for another program

Found this recently, thought it may be of some interest to you. I looked through the newspapers for any further details are it reads to be continued. It would appear that the to be continued is with other reports and not on this particular case in question.

Glamorganshire / Re: Bethany Chapel, Cardiff
« on: Wednesday 25 September 13 03:32 BST (UK)  »
Whilst scouring the Welsh Newspapers on line I found this interesting article.

...The memorial stone was a large slab of freestone, which was lowered into its place by pulleys, immediately over the keystone of the arch surmounting the principal entrance to the
new chapel, facing St. Mary-street. The walls had already been erected to a corresponding height. M. GRIFFITHS, in presenting a silver trowel to Mr. Hopkins, stated that he had been
selected to lay the foundation stone as being the only surviving member of the church from its formation. He read the inscription on the trowel, as-follows Presented to
Thomas Hopkins, Esq., on the occasion of the laying of a memorial stone in the New Bethany Chapel, Cardiff, August 16th, 1861; he being the sole surviving member of the church at its
formation, and now in the 85th year of his age, and the 57th of his deaconship, and the 58th of his membership.

 Mr. Hopkins then, taking the trowel, proceeded to lay the stone in its place, and to give it the customary taps with a mallet after which the workmen completed the job of fixing it in its place.

Mr. Barry meanwhile had placed in a recess formed in the stone a glass jar containing the following articles Carte de visite portraits of the Revs. W. Jones, A. Tilley, and R. Griffiths, Messrs. J. Edy,
T. Hopkins, T.Rees, sen., D. Jotham, J. T. Barry, T.Jenkins, T. Rees, jun., T. Price, David James, Thomas Jones, R. Benjamin, T. Tiist, R. Evans, and Mr. W. P. James and P. Price, the builders of the chapel.
A copy of the Cardiff Times and of the Cardiff News of May 27th, 1864, containing a report of the closing service in the old chapel; Cardiff Times of October 23, 1863, with a report of the Sunday School Jubilee,
Cardiff Express of August 16, 1864; The Times, August 16, 1864; The Freeman, August 10, 1864; Baptist Magazine, August, 1864; Baptist Messenger, August, 1864 and The Church, August, 1864.
A printed list of the members for 1863; an admission ticket in connection with the recognition services of the Rev. Rees Griffiths; and a document prepared by Mr. Griffiths, containing a sketch of the
history of the rise, progress, and formation of the church......


Cardiff Times 18th Aug 1864

If you read the article there is a mention of burials

I'm chasing an ancestor who was a builder in Cardiff - a newspaper report on his death mentions he was the builder of the Tabernacle in Cardiff - I'm eliminating the Chapels one by one!!
