Roberts Family Romany
A Memory of Aberkenfig.
In 1918 my great gran's father Samson Roberts, a horse dealer, was injured during a horse race on the 'Golden Mile' near Aberkenfig. He died of his injuries at home in Dunraven St, Aberkenfig. His wife, Mary Ann, was a tiny lady and they had 11 children. Samson and Mary Ann's daughter Celia Attewell lived on the same street and her husband was killed in WW1 in 1918, in the same year Samson' and Mary Ann's daughter Harriet Henson (known as Arty) lost her husband in WW1 also. Another married daughter Annie Loveridge lived with Celia for a while. Another daughter Gentila later married Percy Price from Aberkenfig, son of unmarried Annie Price.
