Subject: Isaac. Thank you, Kathleen.
Dear Kathleen Rhys,
Many thanks for your reply about the Isaac family.. I've spent the last couple of
days piecing together jottings made years ago,
and think I've got something more
to go on now. Do you think this will take me any further?
I would like to find descendants of my gr. Grandfather's brother, Rees Isaac. Maybe
he came to Glamorgan, or maybe he stayed in
W.Wales. Anyway, this is what I've

John Isaac, born in Llangan in 1788, married Sarah ?, born in Llanboidy 1791.
They settled in Llanboidy, and had two sons there :-
William, born 1819 in Llanboidy, Carms and
Rees, born 1821 in Llanboidy.
William left Carms and went to work in the mines at Aberdare and Rhondda. (Gr,grandad)
In 1839, William, b. 1821, married Elizabeth Jones who was born at Aberdare in 1819.
Rees, born 1842, Aberdare (any relatives of his out there?)

1819. All four Isaac children were born
Llanfyrnach, but showed on the Llanboidy
John, b. 1844 Margaret, b. 1847 Ada, b. 1849 William, b. 1850
It is just possible that Rees may have joined his brother to work in Glamorgan later.
John Isaac, (born 1788) and both his sons, William and Rees, were stone masons.
On the 1851 census at Llanboidy, John Isaac, at 63 years stated he had staying with him,
Margaret James, niece, b. 1836 in Llanboidy, daughter of a miner (in Aberdare, I
Benjamin Isaac, born in Llanboidy in 1838, son of a carpenter.
Some of the Isaac(s) emigrated to the US some time in the 1800's.
Some stayed in West Wales, and some in Glamorgan.
Help regarding any of the above, and their descendants, home and abroad, would be
Many thanks for giving your time to read this.
