Thank you very much for all your help. On the 1891 census Mary's birthplace
is Salam, Cardigan.
The Salem, near Llandelio, would that be in Carmarthen or Cardigan in 1864?
I think I really need to study Welsh geography!!
I think I need to go through ancestry and look for Mary Jenkins at Salem,
Lampeter and Silian. Would the pronunciation, spoken by someone who came
from that area, of Salam and Silian, sound similar to an English speaker? I
have so little information on this side of my family, that every step is
very difficult, and I greatly appreciate any help,
Thank you once again
