1823 Ball family Bible -

I saw an 1829 Family Bible for sale today in a charity shop called "St David's Hospice" in a town in south east Wales called Abergavenny.It was badly worn.With it were 2 letters, one from Long Beach and the other from Iowa.I post this info here because I am sure that the descendents of the Ball family would be thrilled to hold in their hands a book that would have been so precious to their ancestors. Sad that care has not be shown it through the years.Joy FisherCwm TafSouth WalesSee More

Hi Joy,
Happy New Year and thank you for your interest.
Yes, I know how common the name is. My direct ancestors were Davis, previously Davies, Davey, Davy and in 1642 Dewi all in Devon but very obviously from Wales at some earlier date. They returned briefly to Glamorgan in the mid-nineteenth century where my great grandfather, Samuel Davies, married Hannah Morgan at St Johns Aberdar in 1855. Samuel had a brother Gilbert (Davey, Davies) who was in Wales in the mid-nineteenth and married a Morgan and a brother Caleb Davey who married another Davey and lived and died at Newport. Samuel, Gilbert and Caleb were all born at Newton St Petrock in North Devon.
Hannah Morgan's mother Amelia Tingle died in 1874 in the Bedwellty workhouse.
Best to you in 2010.
Donald

Hi Joy,

Thank you for joining the Welsh Family History website. I hope that working together here we can help you find more success in your family history research. It looks like you're already talking to some of the others and I am sure that will help them. One of my families lived at Cwmgors farm, Noah William who died 17 May 1858. I have gathered some sources for the area that aren't readily available here in the states. It amazes me how much is available at the Family History Library and how much more is still in Wales to tap into. Darris
