Thank you for replying.  It doesn't seem that these 2 birth records from GRO are my 2 family members.  Daniel and Isaac do not show up on the same census together, nor do their birth dates match the birthdates I have.  I cannot find them on USA census together either.

As brothers, they should be somewhere unless they had different birth mothers and were raised separetly.  Which is entirely possible.  But even at that, Isaac's death certificate states his father's name is Thomas.  And Daniel's death certificate staes his fathers name was "Sheenk" (nickname?)

Hope your travel was for fun and you enjoyed yourself.
Have a great day.

well, there's more than one Jenkin Williams born around 1862 in that area at the time. The marriage certificate isn't one that is available via online parish registers. The cert would confirm name & occupations for fathers of bride and groom

Jenkin Williams june qtr 1883 Pontypridd vol 11a pg 646a with Susannah Evans on the same page


This 1881 entry looks likely, another Jenkin with father James is on the 1891 census & his father is living with him. But there may have been another Jenkin who moved into the area between the census & the marriage.

50 Scott St, Ystradyfodwg RG11/5300 folio 66 pg 25
Margaret Williams head widow 48 housekeeper b. Aberdare
Evans son 22 coal miner b. Mountain Ash
Jenkin son 19 haulier colliery b. Mountain Ash
Mary A dau 17 servant domestic b. Ountain Ash
Thomas son 14 coal miner b. Ystradyfodwg
John son 12 b. Ystradyfodwg
Matilda dau 6 b. Ystradyfodwg
Aneurin son 4 b. Ystradyfodwg

If this the correct family, the birth reg for Aneurin june qtr 1876 Pontypridd vol 11a pg 417 gives mother's maiden name of Richards., but there isn't a birth reg for Matilda with the same maiden name. Possible birth reg for Jenkin William Williams dec qtr 1861 Merthyr Tydfil vol 11a pg 271 mmn Richards.

julefamily has confirmed to me by pm that marriage cert shows Jenkin's father as Daniel, collier, deceased. Jenkin was 22 at marriage 31 May 1883 & Susannah 19, her father David, collier alos deceased.

if that is the correct death reg for Daniel, he also was killed in an accident - under Ferndale
