Mary Ann JONES was the daughter of my ancestor John JONES, son of Evan &
Elinor both JONES, & she was born in Cardiganshire. Despite being very
clear about her place of birth on census, I have noticed several family
trees on-line which do not agree. Hence my note here.
I had great difficulty in finding her & finally discovered she was married
& settled in Newport, Monmouthshire. Her two elder siblings went to the US
& at least one of their younger siblings visited them there. Some of the
US cousins were still in touch with my family up to the 1990s.
Mary Ann nee JONES married Q4 1878 in Monmouth MON to William ROSSER
b.c.1855 GLA. Mary Ann may have died Q3 1925 age 65. William, her
husband, died earlier. Children: Margaret Ann b.c.1880, William John
b.c.1883 & George Frederick b.c.1884.
Margaret Ann ROSSER's baptism was difficult to arrange as the Chapel was
closed for repair. The local pub was therefore consecrated & baptisms
could go ahead!
Hope this is of interest to someone. I am still following my JONES line in
Llanllwchairn & Penbryn area of Cardiganshire.
