Quarter Bach was a hamlet within Llangadog/Llangadock parish, it was a
larger area than just Brynamman village
Brynaman/Brynamman is a village straddling two counties and three parishes.
One of which is Llangiwg/Llanguicke which is in Glamorgan.
See my site below for the general area including Brynamman
Here below is the family in 1881.
Ganol on the census cd is next to Rhosaman which is to the east of Brynamman
On the modern OS map it is the place shown as Gynol (next to Cors Helyg)
which is actually in Llangiwg, Glamorgan.
If you use the Map link on the above Llangadock Genuki page, then click on
Upper Brynamman on the old maps option, then edge east 2/3 clicks before
enlarging the map you will see Rhosaman Colliery where Jonah possibly worked
and the place Gnol(sic) to the south east of it.
