Hi Pat and Gwyn

good detective work Pat...

can see the marriage took place in

Uzmaston parish church
13th Jan 1833
Walter Reynolds, writer, St Martins Haverfordwest and Martha Harries of this
parish

at least we know he could sign his name, and as you say cross check both
signatures!!

>>Hi Pat,

>>Daniel Evans and Martha Harris. The lady who did the search for me
