Subject: [Dyfed] help search Annie Roberts nee Morris
Wonder if somebody can help me with the following;
I am trying to tracé the death of Annie Roberts nee Morris, wife of
William Henry Roberts. Couple married at Llanelly and had two children.
Edward Aneurin Roberts and Olwen Margaret Roberts.
Near 1911 the family left for South-Africa, possibly Pretoria. William Henry Roberts may
have in the South African Forces, or could have returned to the UK and enlisted.
I suggest you try and look at British and South African (if you can find them) military
Henry may have been killed and could be buried anywhere.
If he was his may have been entitled to a War Pension, and can possibly be traced in this
Henry Roberts seems to have died there between 1911-1923. Never have been
able to tracé his death.
After his death Annie Roberts returned to the UK with both children. She was
on board of the Baradine on Nov 18th 1923.
She stayed with John Walter Morris at 49 Landsowne Road Cardiff. After that
no sign of her anymore.
Also lost her brother in law, David John Roberts, who came back with her
too. He was unmarried.
Can somebody suggest me how i can try to tracé them as the 1911 census is
the last one i have.
