Sarah's siblings...
I'm interested in the Jones family who lived in DAME STREET CARMARTHEN (district St Peter). We have quite a lot of info on them and have found them on censuses and in birth/marriage/death records, but I would love to find descendants from some of the siblings to see if they can shed light on a question about my great grandma Sarah Jane Jones. She was born around 1860, named after her mother Sarah, and married David Phillips in Llanelli-they had several children, including my grandmother Gwendoline. Sarah Jane was the youngest of the family- the oldest was Daniel, b 1843 who, like his father John was a mason. Others were Mary, David, John- and Stephen who was born about 1851 and became a grocer, running an upmarket grocerery in Swansea- in the 1911 census he is listed as a 'retired gentleman grocer'. He married an Ann Jones and they had at least 2 children- Mary Ann born about 1893 and David J born about 1895. Ann's mother Mary Jones was living with them in 1911, at the age of 74. As I say, we have quite a lot of information about the family, but someone may have memories of family stories- especially of the family ghost story- which would shed light on an oddity regarding Sarah jane.
David Jones, Master Mariner
Trying to find more information about David Jones, Master Mariner, born (probably in or near Carmarthen) in 1816 (possibly 16th June), died in 1867 when the ship Nova Scotia was lost (I think en route to Bari) with all hands. (He was master at the time). Obviously trying to find someone called David Jones in Wales is not easy, and not helped by the fact that he must have been at sea much of the time. We do have his certification as a master Mariner, and we have information about the loss of the ship. We know of at least one crew member- a teenage lad from Llanelli-so it could be that the ship sailed from there and other Llanelli area men were on it. There is a complicated family story which suggests that he could be my great great grandfather, although the information we have casts some doubt on this. But I think he must be some connection- perhaps a cousin. Would love to know more if any of this sounds familiar.

Davies watchmaker
I'm looking for information about my great great great grandfather Benjamin Davies. He was born in Uzmaston in about 1778. He was a watchmaker and jeweller by trade, probably in Haverfordwest to begin with. His father Owen Davies was also a watchmaker. Benjamin had sons, William Ayleway Davies, born 1812, and Richard Gibbon Davies, born about 1815, and in 1822 the family moved to Carmarthen where Benjamin continued his jewellery and watchmaking business, later with a branch in Cardigan run by son William. Benjamin died in Carmarthen on 30 March 1845. His sons continued the business in Carmarthen after his death. Benjamin married Mary Gibbon in Uzmaston in 1808. She may have been a relative of Richard Gibbon, a former High Sheriff of Haverfordwest. She died in 1827 in Carmarthen. In January 1845 Benjamin married Mary Ann Powell in Carmarthen.
