My grandmother had cousins who live in Abercwmboi, and my Uncle Bill Jackson visited there in WW2 and he told me that he had stayed with my grandma's relations -- he was called " Owen's the Post" -- and that is all I know -- can anyone help??? I would love to have contact and did write to "the postmaster" but got no reply. My grandma's name was Margaret Ann Morris and she emigrated in the 1880's.

I was wondering if anyone who lives, lived or knows anything about Abercwmboi, would be able to give me some information on the old lodge house/ gate house? It is just before the Fern Hill Estate on the left hand side? I would love any information or memory of it. The age of the house, if it was a lodge or gate house, any names of anyone who lived there or any pictures. ...see more
