|I am looking for any information on my MORGAN family. According to my "family History" my GGG grandfather David Morgan was born in Ammonford, Carmathenshire, South Wales (don't laugh, I'm not very good at Welsh geography!)August 9, 1830. His parents were William Morgan (born Nov 22, 1807) and Margaret Jones (also known as "Peggy Pantybryn"). William Morgan was a stone mason along with his brothers, Morgan Morgan and Joseph Morgan. Morgan Morgan was the original contractor of the Llandilo Bridge, which was completed in 1848.
David Morgan (son of William) had several brothers and sisters: Margaret Morgan; lived in Maespannwr and was a butter merchant.
