Problems finding Tom Anthony's 2nd wife
« on: Saturday 27 April 19 12:37 BST (UK) »
Tom Anthony was my grandfather Jacob's brother, both born illegitimately to Elizabeth Anthony in Llanegwad area in 1874. In 1939 he was in Banctwrgwili, Penygroes, Llandebie where he married an Annie Morgan (Tidmarsh) in 1943 from Hawthorn Villa, Gorsleas. Shown on their marriage certificate. This was both their 2nd marriage. He was 69 and she was 47. He died in 1947 it appears in Parke Mill, Capel Isaac where there was another Annie Morgan. There was also an Annie Morgan living in the nearby farm Dolaugleision where we think he may have worked. Seems there are so many Annie Morgans linked to Tom's whereabouts. We are trying to zero in on Tom's burial place but proving difficult. Anyone got any ideas? Regards.
