Sorry - it's difficult to understand your post as it has no punctuation separating the various parts.

Do I have this right?

Your grandfather was called John Morris but was also John Edward Morris known as Ted

Your grandfathers uncle was James Morris from Llansilin who was running a smithy in 1910 in Llansantffraid and was also a verger and choirmaster

His son was Gruffudd Allan Morris who continued running the smithy until 1960

For us to help fill in any gaps you need to supply more info as follows:

When and where was John/John Edward Morris born

What year was his uncle,  James Morris the smithy,  born

When and where was Gruffudd Allan Morris born

If James was running the smithy in 1910 - have you checked the 1911 census for info on him at that time

If John/John Edward Morris was born pre-1911 - what info do you have from the 1911 census about him or his family

Hi Glyn

I think you've been looking for this family for a while now. I remember that there were a few problems because they lived in areas that were covered by Oswestry, Llanfyllin and Corwen Registration Districts.

I'll have a read through the old threads to refresh my memory and get back to you. 

Where were these Morrises in 1911?

Hi again Glyn

I've just been reading the first of your threads from last year  :) 

Did you get the marriage cert of John Edward's grandparents in 1877? This should give you John Morris (b.c. 1850)'s father's name and occupation and his wife Elizabeth's maiden name.

John Morris (grandfather) was born Llanrhaeadr ym Mochnant circa 1850.

I think that this is the Uncle James, aged 2 in 1881:

Bodlith, Llansilin
RG11/2656/24/1


Morris

John, 32, ag lab, b. Llanrhaeadr
Elizabeth, 31, b. Merionethshire, Cynwyd
Mary, 4, b. Denbighshire, Llanarmon
James. 2. b. -do-

Llanarmon and Llansilin are only a few miles apart

PS - does this link in to your Pont y Meibion query, as P y M is just outside Llanarmon?

I see from this message:

http://www.rootschat.com/forum/index.php/topic,390518.msg2620606.html#msg2620606

that John Morris (1850)'s father was Gomer.

Glyn, I'm not sure what you are wanting now as we've done most of it before in the two threads of last May and June  :-\

Marriage between Gomer Morris and Elizabeth Jones, Dec quarter 1849, Llanfyllin, vol 27 page 149

These will be John Morris (1850)'s parents and Elizabeth Morris and James Morris's grandparents and Ted's great grandparents and your great great great grandparents.
