Joshua/Joshuah Jones

Birth Name Joshua/Joshuah Jones
Gramps ID I0097
Gender male
Age at Death 61 years


JONESFAM: Joshuah had probably given up farming by 1842 and gone to earn his living as a sawyer in the Glamorgan coalfield, since the birthplace of Safaira, his 8th child, probably born in 1842, is recorded as Merthyr Tydfil (GLA). He may have moved to Aberdare, where other members of the family were living later on, but we have not yet found him there.
