The probate record for the Reverend John Jones B.A. reads:
"Jones the reverend John of Llanwnog Vicarage, Caerws, Montgomeryshire clerk died 1 June 1917. Probate London 9 September to Jane Jones widow. Effects 674 12s 4d."
*
I wonder if John was buried there (at Llanwnog Vicarage or the church) and if it's possible to find a grave for him? I'm really hoping that it may include a birth date for him; he was baptised in Lampeter, Cardiganshire on 18th July 1841 with his twin brother William. The GRO can not find birth certificates for the twins.
*
John married Jane Mathias in Q June 1882 and I wonder what happened to Jane who was John's widow in 1917?

Any help is much appreciated.

Welsh newspapers online has several announcements of his death, buried at Llanwnog
use llanwnog for search and 1917 to1919 on the time bar.

Thanks. From Welsh Newspapers The North Wales Chronicle and Advertiser for the Principality on 15th June 1917 states "the place of internment being the parish churchyard at Llanwnog."

So I'm hoping that somebody might locate a grave and gravestone inscriptions for John.

Jane was baptised in August 1849. She was in poor health at the time of John's death. Did she die at Llanwnog too?

John Arthur  baptised Llannor  16/07/1883
Bridget Maud baptised Llannor 02/05/1886.
Gwyneth A Eleanor  baptised llannor 18/06/1893
But the announcement in the North Wales Chronicle has mourners as Arthur (son) and Gwineth (daughter)

Some nice pics of the Church here

http://www.jlb2011.co.uk/walespic/churches/llanwnnog1.htm


And this:
http://www.genuki.org.uk/big/wal/MGY/Llanwnnog/#ChurchHistory
seems to indicate the Montgomery Genealogical Society have listed the MI's.
Edmonds/Edmunds - mainly Sussex
DeBoo - London
Green - Suffolk
Parker - Sussex
Kemp - Essex
Farrington - Essex
Boniface - West Sussex

There's a probate record for a Jane Jones - "Jones Jane of Cwm Manafon, Montgomeryshire widow died 19 November 1924 at The Lodge, Caerwsw, Montgomeryshire. Admin. London 9 July 1926 to Robert Ridge Farm Bailiff. Effects 81 8s 9d."

I think this seems likely for Jane and perhaps she was buried close to John.

I can look at the links above for MI. Thanks.
I do know quite about the family and will add information about Bridget.
