I am interested in making contact with the descendants of Josiah Thomas, for exchange of research information and family memories. My Great Grandmother was Josiah's sister, Ophelia and married to Richard Evans of Llangurig. I can be contacted at, firstname.lastname@example.org anytime. Ken Evans.
I spent a few years at The Mount Boys Home (1 Heygate Street, Wellington) in the early seventies. I wonder if the building is still there, has anyone got any photo's of it?
My grandmother was named Violet May Purcell, born in May 1891. She emigrated to Canada as a young adult. Her father was Frederick Purcell, a wire cleaner; her mother was Ellen Purcell (nee Higginson). If anyone has additional information, please advise. Thank you.
Remember the Church and War Memorial well. Although, sadly, a few more names had been added to it by 1970. My cub hut was located just behind the church and as young boys we used to try and scare each other as we walked past the graveyard to Church Steet where parents would wait to take us home.
This photo is available to buy in a range of sizes and styles, including framed and on canvas.
