Some relatives of mine went to Pennsylvania to Wales around 1847 , from the slate quarries of Caernarfonshire .
I cannot find much trace of them , but I wonder if anyone is descended from them or has some knowledge.
The eldest was William Evans, b 1781 . (His wife had died prior to migration) . Despite his age , I think he became a quarry overseer .
The following children accompanied him :
John Evans ( b 1810) , his wife Catherine :
Children William, Elizabeth , John , Griffith
Evan Evans ( b 1814)
Children Evan and Thomas
Jane Evans ( b 1819)
William Evans ( b 1823) , his wife Jemima
Children Elizabeth, Evan , Griffith , Margaret , William
Griffith Evans ( b 1826)
Robert Evans ( b ?)
Children Elizabeth, Hugh , Jane , Mary , William
Any information would be welcome.
