Looking for relatives of The Rev. Robert Jones, Ochr y Foel, Llanllyfni



My wife's great grandmother Elizabeth Jones was the sister of the preacher Robert Jones, born in Dolwenith, Llanllyfni in 1806. She married and moved to Penmaenmawr and died there in 1899. They had at least 7 siblings. We know that Robert's daughter Ann Owen, Ochr y Foel, had only one child who died young. Another brother, whose name in not known, died age 22. We would be very grateful for any information relating to the other brothers and sisters and their descendants and hope that there are still relatives living in the area.

Their names and approximate dates of birth etc. are as follows:-
Female (possibly Elinor or Ellen - may have emigrated), Evan (b.1811, d. Penmaenmawr 1856), Jane (b.1815, d. Penmaenmawr), John (b. 1819, d. Yr Hendre, Llanllyfni), David (b.1825, d. Rhosyrunman, Llanllyfni, 1903) and William (b.1827, d. Cochybig, Llanllyfni).

This generation were given the surname Jones, but their parents were John and Mary Evans of Dolwenith, Llanllyfni. We believe that all but Robert were born in Cae'r Waen, Llanllyfni. We would also like to know where Dolwenith, Cae'r Waen and Ochr y Foel are (or were) if anyone can tell us.

Thank you,
Gareth Roberts.
