Has anyone, anywhere, seen my Benjamin DAVIES born ca 1792 at Troedyraur,
CGN and died 1869 at Llantrisant, GLA ?
At a Baptism of a child of 2nd marriage, he says he is a Clothier and I
assume that was his occupation in CGN.
He had a son by a first marriage ? Thomas DAVIES who was born June 30, 1815
at Troedyraur, CGN. My feeling is that the first wife died either at Thomas'
birth or some short time later, as they are in the Llantrisant area by 1851.
Thomas- memorial says:-
273b Hefyd am THOMAS DAVIES, Maes-yr-Haf, Trealaw/ Tad yr Rhagddweddedig
Ganwyd, Mehefin 30 1815 bu farw Rhagfyr 10 1897/ Bu brawd yn aelod ffyddlawn
yn Soar Ffrwdamws am/ 60 mlwydd, ac yn ymddiriedolwr yn yr Eglwys am 40
mlynydd/ ' Llefais arnat, Arglwydd, a dywedais ti yw fy ngobaith am Rhan yn
nhir y rhai byr.' /Psalman CXL II 5.
I would be pleased to have a full translation if someone has time please?
