Welcome to RootsChat Camer  :)

I'm having trouble finding a match immediately. Is 1863 the year they were married, or the year Benjamin was born? Is there anything else you know about those 2 - details of their children maybe? :)

Hi and welcome to Rootschat

Can you just clarify your post

Did Benjamin & Diana marry in Treherbert in 1863 or do you mean that Diana was b Treherbert 1863?  

Where did you get that info from?

Treherbert is Glamorgan but you have posted on the Radnorshire board - is there a reason for that?

If you have them on any census - would you please post full details of the entry to help us find more info

How about Benj Married to Dinah?

RG9/4064; Folio: 10; Page: 24

Writing's awful, and I'd hate to embarrass myself reading place-names... :-[

Since you mention 1863 does that mean that you know of another child?
May we have a name?
