Elizabeth Rees - 1872 Llangadock
« on: Friday 05 April 19 00:51 BST (UK) »
Hi, I'm hoping someone is able to confirm my thoughts around Elizabeth Rees. She is the key to my maternal line which I've gone back to 1776. I just need to be as certain as I can be she is the correct person, then I'm fairly certain everything else is correct. She married my Great Great Grandfather William Richards on 21/11/1891, she was the Mother of John Henry Richards who was born in 1894. I believe her parents were William Rees b1843 & Margaret Morgans b1844. My slight confusion is when looking for a birth cert for Elizabeth there are 2 born in the same year, 1873 1 in qtr 1 and 1 in qtr 4, the second birth is Elizabeth Ann Rees. So I obviously thought it would be the first birth in qtr 1, however both births have the mothers maiden name of Morgans. This is a rural agricultural area so fairly sparsely populated. Is this a coincidence or did Margaret Morgans have 2 daughters within a 12mth period and call them both Elizabeth  ??? ???  Incidentally Elizabeth Ann died 3 yrs later in 1876. The location is Llangadock, Carmarthenshire. Would appreciate any observations or opinion. I'm going to buy both birth certs anyway but just curious if I'm missing something. - Many thanks  for reading my long winded message - Richard

 :o :o :o  what are the chances, I think I have the correct one as the children were being born from 1867 onwards.

Thanks, been back through and you're are correct, it looks like Elizabeth Ann was born to the second William and Margaret who were married in 1870, the fact that she unfortunately died aged 3 proves that the Elizabeth born to William and Margaret who were married in 1865 is the correct one. Phew !!1  I love this site, many thanks - richard
