I sent this to a list earlier on, but it was a list that is no longer used much. I have
to thank Dai Bevan for alerting me to this, otherwise I would be still wondering why no
one replied, thank Dai, appreciate you taking the time.
"Joseph Jenkins was born in 1818 at Blaenplwyf in the parish of Llanfihangel-Ystrad,
Cardingshire, West Wales. He died at the age of 80 in 1898 [possibly in Trecefel?]. He
had an uncle David Davies 1745 - 1827."
The above information came from a book written by William Evans, grandson of Joseph. The
book is called a "Diary of a Welsh Swagman 1869-1894". It was published in 1975
and was extracted by William from Joseph's diaries of his time in Australia.
I found the book in an op shop and it is looking for a home. I thought that anyone
researching the family might like the book if they don't already have a copy. Some
might not even know of its existence. The book is FREE, however, it is requested that the
new owner PAY POSTAGE.
If anyone wants it, it is first come, first serve.
Have a good day.
