You may be interested in this, it's extracted from a book about the folk of the Llywel area - where I have some links

David Price, Ffynonwrgan
Sarah the daughter of Thomas and Gladis Price was born at
Portis in 1816. She married 4.11.1836 Thomas Morgan of
Cwmclydach, but he died in September 1838. Their daughter
Mary died in 1845 aged 7 years. Sarah married again in 1839
David Howells a widower of Cwmcynwal. His first wife had
been Elinor, baptised in 18 11 at Cefn Arthen, daughter of
Thomas and Anne Price,P encaew, hom he married 5.2.1834.
Elinor died 3 1.5.1837 at Gelliglud. David and Sarah had two
children, John born 1841 and Mary 1845. John married c.
1872, Anne eldest daughter of Rees and Agnes James of
Bronydd Mawr. They had one daughter, Sarah Ann who died
in May 1874, and John, her father, died two months later aged
33. Ann then returned to live with her family at Bronydd.
Mary daughter of Dafydd and Sarah married Thomas
Price, Ffynnonwrgan, who was the youngest son of Enock
and Rachel Price. Rachel was the daughter of Watkin and
Lyssod Watkins of Brynmaen and a first cousin of Thomas
Price, Pencae. Enock was the eldest son of David Prees,
yeoman and master carpenter of Cefn Twrch and
Ffynnonwrgan. David Prees was the son of Rees Evan, carpenter
of Traeanglas, born 1736. Evan, another son, was a
carpenter at Blaenhydfer, and died in his 28th year in 1769.
Enock Price and some of his family share the same grave as
Evan Prees which is marked by an altar tomb, near the South
entrance to Llywel Church.

I think you've hit the jackpot for information on this branch of your family.
Rachel's mother was Llysod Watkin she married Watkin Warkins.The Watkins family have farmed at Brynmaen for many generations.

The book about the families in the  Llywel area "Roots and Branches" was written by T.O.Evans.

I am related to Watkin Watkins [1828-1912] who was the the nephew of Rachel. He was my great, great grandfather

I will contact you to let you have my personal eMail.
