I wonder if anyone else on here knows anything about this family?
My Grandmother Margaret Rees was born at 18 Welcome Street, Morriston in November 1867. Her parents were Evan and Margaret Rees, (nee Davies).
I believe that Welcome Street is now re-named 'Lower Slate Street'.
My Great Grandfather Evan Rees, (1837 - 1927) worked in the Copper Works and then the Tin Works. Apparantly he also sang in a choir, and was known as 'the Nightingale of Treforys', - but this is anecdotal...
On the 1891/1901 and 1911 Censuses for Wales, Evan Rees is living at Brynforgan House; which I think is in Clydach? He is certainly buried in St John's, Clydach.
My Grandmother Margaret Rees married William James Wilson and with him lived in St Helens Road, Swansea and then from 1919 - 1932 at 'Y Plas', Llangyfelach Road. They ran a painting and decorating business called, 'Wilson and Co' from 93 St Helens Road; which was also a shop.
I wondered if anyone on here might also be looking at this family or know anything about them?
My family is from Lower Slate Street and Evan Rees was my Great Grandfather too. My Grandfather was Gomer Rees.
