Martha born 15 Mar 1848 but no birth reg in RD Neath if Briton Ferry is correct. Same pob in 1861 and 1881. Family in America in 1871.


I'd like a look up please for the family in 1841.

Thanks,

Dave

I've not traced the parents after 1871.

Neither seem to be in 1881.

Deaths Sep 1872
POWELL Evan 61 Neath 11a 294

Deaths Dec 1878
POWELL Ann 67 Neath 11a 350

Any probate or burial thanks.
