Could this be him in the 1901 census of Ystradyfodwg, Glamorgan:

RG13/5015, folio 107, page 30
Schedule 176, 27 Gelli Crossing

John JONES Head M 63 Coal Miner - Hewer Glam Merthyr
Mary JONES Wife M 59 do do
Owen JONES Son S 28 Coal Miner - Haulier do Ystrad

This family are at the same address in the 1891 census (RG12/4425, folio 37, page 5) but with 2 extra children Evan aged 24 and Thomas aged 15. They are at 16 Gelli Row in the 1881 census (RG11/5303, folio 20, page 36) which you can look up yourself at www.familysearch.org/.

Thank you. I had seen the Gelli Row entry but didn't know if the place was anywhere near my possibles.

oops false alarm. Just looked again and it can't be him. He was married by then and had a daughter. Oh well thanks for trying!

Hello, Owen Arthur Jones was my Great Grandfather. My Grandmother was Myfanwy Kate Jones (Owen's daughter) of Clocaenog, Wales. Myfanwy had four daughters Maude, Greta, Connie and Brenda. Brenda died in England in the 40's and I believe Maud died in 1972. Myfanwy died in August 1974. Her daughters Greta (Brisbane) and Connie (Melbourne) have are Grandparents now. I am Dean Mighell, Connies son aged 45. I can be contacted on 0418354362 or december1854@yahoo.com.au. I will be in the UK in December 2007.

I am after any information of my cousin Keith Lewis (Maude's son). I believe that Keith's father was Ken Lewis. Myfanwy always kept a photo of keith by her bedside and I would early like to catch up with him.
