My gg grandmother, Elizabeth DAVID/EVANS, was the illegitimate daughter
of Mary DAVID and John EVANS, born 1819, Myddfai Parish near Llandofery,
Carmarthenshire. Mary's (b.1780) parents were Rees DAVID (1747) and
Margaret HARRY (1742), also Carms. Rees' parents were Lewis DAVID (1723)
and Janet REES (1724). Margeret's parents were Evan HARRY and Catherine
DAVID. In the same generation as Evan HARRY, I have a Gwenllian HARRY
who married David Morgan LEWIS. The events I have dates on all occurred
in Myddfai Parish. I'm guessing Evan and Gwenllian were born around
1720-ish, but I haven't found the records. I've wondered if they were
from some other Parish and have searched some of the nearest ones, but
have yet to find them. It's possible they could be from Pems. It would
be great to know! It doesn't look like we have a direct connection, does
By the way, my second visit to Wales was last June and the
beautiful!! In fact, I was there for a couple of days of record breaking
heat! No matter what the weather, I love being there and will visit
again soon, hoping to break through some brick walls. I'll keep your
name on file, in case I find a Pems connections on any of these names.

As a fellow Dyfed lister, I saw your last note to Phil. What caught my
attention was your other research interests. (Rees, Harry and David)
My gr-gr-gr grandfather was William Rees (1782 - 1862). His sister Mary
married an Eli David. and sister Rachel married Charney Harry. William
and his other siblings were born and lived at Granant, St. Dogmaels,
PEM. Any connections?
Sorry you and Phil suffered such cold weather. The time I was in Wales
was as sunny as a spring daffodil. If you really want cold, come visit
in a cold and snowy Canada!
Look forward to hearing from you.
