Welcome to Rootschat

Can you provide some dates please

Jonathan Plowman who immigrated to the USA at age 12
  What year did he emigrate so we can determine his birthyear

Elizabeth Lianer Plowman who I saw via findagrave that might be his mother and John Samual Plowman as his father as well as an Edward Plowman who is his father.

He can't have had 2 fathers?

Is this his birth reg

You need to look for his parents marriage then check the 1891 census etc for more info on his father

Glamorganshire / Re: Mary Elizabeth Evans' parentage

William & Elizabeth were both born in Aberdare, around 1867 & 1869 respectively. They married in 1889.
I am less concerned about finding out about William's parentage than I am about Elizabeth's. Her parents were not present on the marriage certificate, so I have no immediate way of finding out what her maiden name was.

Mothers names are never shown on English or Welsh marriage certs.  You must have Elizabeth’s maiden name if you have the 1889 marriage cert?

Son b 1909 was Patrick Smith Graham.  Died 22.3.1941 Killearn Stirlingshire according to a tree on Ancestry.  Same tree shows James died Barrow 1940 but the only death in 1940 was aged 57

No obvious death in Barrow.  Suspect they may have moved

There are a number of threads about the 1921 - use the RC search facility to find them.  Latest one today deals with the costs announced by FindMyPast.  See my last reply on this thread

Simplest way is to look for any births on freebmd then use GRO online to determine the mothers maiden name.

Alternatively -you can just use GRO online to do a maiden name search.  As Busch can be spelt differently - use the option “similar sounding variations” or “phonetically similar variations” from the right hand menu
