thank you osprey

I started digging around for the Jenkin Davies on one of the censuses with Thomas and Rachel, ended up in Cardiganshire with several names, places, and dates that match other documents, melted my brain a little in the process as there are a lot of Thomas, John, Rachel, and Marys but it does look like it all fits

time to switch from coffee to gin, thank you so very much for your help everyone

I've been looking at that tree I mentioned and it's a mess as far as John Davies is concerned,  they have him buried twice and marrying after his first death.🤔

The John Davies aged 23 buried 14 March 1859 is likely to have been killed.
There is no mention of a wife or his parents in the reports.

I think I know that tree  :-[ especially if you search it for a Violet and find one near Pembroke

I've been running crazy on there trying to find puzzle pieces and have filled a couple of people on it with anything that may or may not fit
