Visiting Abercynon As 8 Yr Old

A Memory of Abercynon

I remember visiting Abercynon as a small child. Taken there by my mother to the house of Uncle Benjamin Jones. Having just turned 70 and lived in New Zealand for some 57 years my memories of the location of their house is vague. I do remember it being on a steep hill with a grand view. Benjamin gave my mother Haulwen away at her wedding (her Dad had died when she was only 4 years old) - her maiden name was John and she married Emrys Davies in Jerusalem Chapel , Burry Port. They lived on the Graig. Was wondering if there is anyone still living in Abercynon who can remember or link in to our family. Kind regards from Zealand Newydd.
