I am trying to find informaion on my 8th great grandfathers family in Wales. His name is Edward Edwards, B. 1791, to a Edward Edwards (b. 1769) and a Margaret Williams in the parish of Llansamlet. He had five brothers named David Edwards (B. 1793), William Edwards (B. 1795), Richard Edwards (B. 1797), Alexander Edwards (B. 1799), and John Edwards (B. 1801).

Edward married a Elizabeth Thomas in October of 1820 and had five children named Edward THomas Edwards (b. 1821), Ann Edwards (b. 1823), Catherine Edwards (b. 1826), John Edwards (b. 1828, d. 1830), John Edwards (b. 1831), and Mary (b. 1833). The family as a whole immigrated to the United States in 1849-1850, except Catherine who married a Daniel Edwards in wales and then they later immigrated to St. Louis, Illinois around 1851-1852, and his sister Ann who died in Wales.

I am looking for any informaion on Edward's (b. 1769) five brother, their families, if they ever immigrated to the United States or if they remained in Wales. I know that Edwards' parents are Edward Edwards & Margaret Williams as I have already stated and that Edward's (b. 1791) grandparents are John Edwards (b. 1745) and Margaret Jenkins (b. 1744).

I would appreciate any and all information that you might have in regards to this family.

John Edwards

PS - I have almost the entire family information on this family forward from 1791 except for the families of these five brothers.
