Family History Through The Alphabet: Letter L
The lovely folk at Gould Genealogy have issued a challenge to genealogists and family historians. Their idea is The ‘Family History Through the Alphabet’ Challenge We will work our way through the alphabet, using one letter each week and discuss anything relating to our family history starting with that letter. The Letter L: L is for Lost Ancestor. Regular readers of my blog are probably sick of my constant referral to my Lost Ancestor, my Great Great Grandfather JOHN TAYLOR. He is my mystery man. So far, I haven’t been able to find any reference to his birth. I do know that he lived in the Uzmaston, Pembrokeshire area of Wales in 1814, at the time of the birth of his son John. He was married to MARY DAVIES on 254 June 1805 in Slebech, Pembrokeshire, Wales. Even though I haven’t been able to find reference to his death, I am fairly sure that he died before 1841. His wife Mary died in 1841 in Haverfordwest, Pembrokeshire, Wales and is described as a widow on her death certificate. Top of my “genealogy travel list” is a trip to Wales in the hope that the information I need to fill in the gaps is there waiting for me.
