Trying to work out how Jane connects to other Harris in my tree.


Can't find them in 1881.

Thanks Geoff.

The formatting problem looks to be random.

Can't find the family in 1881. Births for 4x Jane Harris in RD Swansea 1840 +/- 1. Webb, Rees, Davis and Jenkins.

Thanks Geoff.

Possible 4x Jane Harris in Glamorgan in 1841.

David [THOMAS] opted for a career in industry rather than in farming, and became famous in America for his formula of producing steel from anthracite coal.

The John Harris (b. 1844 Skewen) in my tree went to America with a letter from Jane Bowen to get introduced to David Thomas in Pennsylvania.
 
Gonna leave it there for now, Dave. I don't have much set up on Edge and it means going back and forth to Chrome for info.

David Thomas junior born 1794 to David Thomas senior & Jane Williams.

David Thomas junior was Jane Bowen's (nee Harris b. abt 1840) uncle.

David Thomas junior married Elizabeth Hopkins.

Don't know how 'uncle' fits with 4x Jane Harris mmn being Webb, Res, Davies and Jenkins.

Something very wrong with the transcription of the 1861 census with Jane Harris 21 born Dudleston Heath.
