William John head mar 43 factory b. Llanfihangel Abercowin
Anne wife 56 b. Laugharne
William son 20 b. Llanddowror
Henry son 17 b. Llanddowror
Eliza dau 15 b. Llanfihangel Abercowin
Howell son 10 b. LLanfihangel Abercowin

1861 Bankyfelin, Llanfihangel Abercowin RG9 folio 4138 folio 71 pg 4
William John head mar 34 wool manufactory b. Llangannock
Anne wife 45 b. Laugharne
William son 10 b. Llanddowror
Henry L son 7 b. Llanddowror
Eliza dau 5 b. Llanfihangel Abercowin
Sarah Morgan 15 step dau b. Llanddowror

1851 Llanddowror HO107/2472 folio 493 pg 13
William John head mar 23 wool carder & spinner (factory) b. Llanfihangel Abercowin
Anne wife 35 b. Laugharne
John Morgan stepson 13 b. Laugharne
David Morgan stepson 10 b. Llanddowror
Anne Morgan stepdaughter 8 b. Llanddowror
Sarah Morgan stepdaughter 5 b. Laugharne
William John son 4 months b. Llanddowror

birth reg for Howell John jun qtr 1861 Carmarthen has mmn Lloyd.

Where did you get the death date for William? The only death reg in Carmarthen registration district for a William Morgan in march qtr 1851 gives an age of 47 - vol 26 pg 458. The more likely death reg would be march qtr 1848 vol 26 pg 527 aged 32.
Also likely birth reg for William John is dec qtr 1851 Carmarthen vol 26 pg 588 mmn Lloyd and possible marriage dec qtr 1850 Carmarthen vol 26 pg 847 William John & Anne Morgan the only names on the page, so could be register office or chapel.
This newspaper article might be linked - look for awful occurrence

Parish baptisms for Llanddowror are on Findmypast, but no sign of your Morgan or John family, so could be baptising elsewhere or non-conformist.
