Griffiths Family - a Memory of Ynysboeth.

My great grandfather Evan Griffiths lived at 54 Kennard Street, Ynysboeth. He died on March 26th 1905 aged 47 years and is buried in Mountain Ash Cemetry. He was married to Elizabeth Griffiths who emigrated to Australia about 1915 with her family. She died 26 October 1944 in Sydney. Their children were John, Mary, Thomas and Tilly (all deceased), Edward, Phoebe, Henry and Albert. Their daughter Phoebe (my grandmother) stayed behind in Wales and died at the age of 54. I emigrated to Australia in 1982 and have had no luck in tracing the Griffiths family. Does anyone remember the Griffiths family in Ynysboeth or better still, are there any relatives still living there?
