The Jones families

1) Jones - Cherry Orchard.

I came across the Jones family after researching the Edwards family of Cherry Orchard. Ann Jones became the matriarch of the Edwards’ after her husband James’ death in 1843. She herself died in 1857. You’ll see more of her here:

This Jones line as reported here consists of Ann’s parents and siblings.

2) Jones - married into Rees family of Lower Wernhir.

Catherine Jones was born in Llangattock, Breconshire in approximately 1844. We know that she had a sister, Jane Jones, from the 1871 census, although I haven’t yet found who Catherine’s parents were.

Catherine married Benjamin Rees in 1867 in the Crickhowell Registration District. See her bio for more detail.
