    Ok here i go off on another tangent of my family ,
    Looking for any information which could lead me to family in South Wales.

    Catherine Lewis born 1889 in Dowlais and married Edward Hamer in 1906 in the Merthyr area ,
    the only information about this family that i have is a name of ,
    Garnett Brown who owned and ran the Pioneer Hotel in Cwmfelinfach in the 1970s i beleive that he had 2 sons .
    This side of the family we have very little information about so any help would be so welcome..
