Please disregard my message of Sept. 16, 2003. If the information on a birth certificate I received from the General Register Office for my Greatgrandmother Caroline Willis(nee Thomas) is correct I will be looking for a different John Thomas family.The date of birth, 7 Feb. 1862; the place of birth, Mountain Ash,Glamorgan, Wales, and name of father, John Thomas occupation, coalminer are correct. The difference and what I'm surprised to see is the name of her mother; Sophia with a last name that is hard to read and looks like 'Har-ies.' The hyphen is blurred but it looks more like an 'r.' Initially I thought my Ggreatgrandmother's maiden name was 'Harris.'
The 1881 census has Caroline Willis at 81 Duffryn St. in Llanwanno, Glamorgan, Wales.
I believe the John Thomas family could have been living in Llanwonno at the same time. I have a letter dated 1910 from Mrs. Edith Jones to Mrs Alfred Willis (Caroline) in which she refers to 'Sister Carrie.' Her address was No. 38 Phillips St, Graiy, Pontypridd, South Wales.
Can you folks try to confirm the John Thomas family and if possible locate Edith and other siblings if any?
May I thank all you good folks in advance for helping me.
