In the 1881 census for Wales, I found, with great delight, my great
grandparents John Davies, 26, lead miner and Jane Davies, 27 (maiden name
Evans) living at Pwll Lucy, Trefeglwys, Montgomery, Wales, with their two
sons John, 4 and Edward, 1. John and Jane came to Perry County, Ohio, U.S.
in 1883 with their two sons and a daughter, Sarah, and worked in the coal
mines of Rendville and Congo. They had two other daughters after coming to
the U.S.--Mary Jane and Martha. Jane died in 1893 and John in 1898. Does
anyone know of this family?
Also found at Pwll Lucy were the following people:
1. Richard Davies, 50, farmer of 13 acres, Sarah Davies 50, farmer wife,
Sarah Davies 17, farmer daur, Mary Ann Davies, 10, farmer scholar, Ann
Davies 8 farmer scholar.
2. Margaret Evans 68 Widow head Cottage
3. Edward Rees 91 W cottage no occ, Elizabeth Rees 47, daur house keeper,
John Jones 24 boarder farm labourer, Elizabeth Jones 24 farm wife, David
Jones 1 son.
Does anyone know if Pwll Lucy was a farm? By any off chance would these
others living at Pwll Lucy be relatives? Where exactly is Trefeglwys? I
have not seen it mentioned. I do not know at present who John Davies'
father and mother were, nor Janes's. I am hoping that when I receive
their marriage certificate that more light will be shed on this matter.
Any information would be greatly appreciated. Lynn
