    Hi Ani,

    Could be the marriage for your Samuel JONES - source Herefordshire FHS Marriage Index:

    20 July 1767 at Ewyas Harold Samuel JONES & Elizabeth PRITCHARD

    Also perhaps a marriage for Joshua although he would be quite old?

    17 February 1817 at Much Dewchurch Joshua JONES of Wormbridge & Mary ROWBREE

    Janet
    Impatience can be a virtue - honestly!

    hallo Janet, thank you for your helping.
    Its true. Both are my ancestor. Joshua is the son from Samuel. Both was a blacksmith. but i canīt find more information about their live and job. also i canīt find more about the father from samuel ( he is born 1745 in Abbeydore)
    for me its very interesting to get to know about their live arond the past society situation ( i hope I have typing understandly)

    Ani, you can get a good idea of what being a blacksmith was like if you go the "anvilfire" website. When you are on the site click on "getting started in blacksmithing", then "a day in the life of an apprentice blacksmith". It is written about the USA and is fiction. It is also copyright, so you must not publish the article anywhere without permission.
