I am talking about the person who is said to be a 'different Elizabeth', with her son Thomas in 1911.  I cannot see them earlier to identify them as being a different family to your Elizabeth.

Thomas was Elizabeth's father. I have sourced Elizabeth's birth certificate which shows both parents. Found their grave in local churchyard.

I am not asking about Elizabeth's father.

These people, where are they on earlier census records if it isn't your Elizabeth?


In 1911, there is an Elizabeth Anthony(widow)  with her son Thomas Anthony, born 1875 Llanegwad and his wife and baby daughter. Elizabeth's place of birth given as Llanegwad in 1844.

Elizabeth's son was Jacob born 1881. She was unmarried.

The wrong Elizabeth Anthony is married to John a farmer on the 1901 census,born Kidwelly in 1852.
They are in Llandefeilog in 1911.

I think they are different as Elizabeth didn't have a son called Thomas. I did come across some other Anthonys but none matched what I was looking for. I don't remember a Thomas as a son to an Elizabeth. There was an Anthony family at Danycapel in Llanegwad but the father and son were called John.

As we know the area we think John Anthony was Jacob's father. Not on the birth certificate as he was married to Anne. He shows up as Jacob's father later when deceased!

My ancestry account has run out. If you have an account try searching backwards from 1901. Try Llanfynydd as it's close by to Llanegwad.
