Hi, can anyone help me please. I'm trying to find more info on my Dad's family from South Wales.
Elijah Williams was born abt 1855/56 in Nash Monmouthshire.
He married Hannah Dooling in 1878, he was 22years old and a widow, Hannah was 19 and single. On marriage cert it states Elijah's father was Thomas Williams a carpenter, Hannah's father was Michael Dooling a Labourer.
I don't know any details of Elijah's birth/baptism or first marriage.
One of their daughters, Elizabeth Williams, went on to marry Herbert Charles Coopey in 1901, one of their daughters, Agnes Emily Coopey born 18.6.1913 was my grandmother. She married David John Jones 19.5.1928 and they are my Dad's parents.
I don't have any info on Michael Dooling or his family but believe they are from Ireland.
Hope someone out there can shed some light on this family for me.
Thanks in anticipation
