His farm has been also called Cwm Bargoed. And on other census forms known as Ty Cenol. Tir Blaen Bargod, Tir Cwm Bargod.
Where are they buried.
Edmund had a large family Wife margaret. children Jenkin, Gregory, Mary, Ann, Rebecca, Llewelyn, John, Jane, Thomas, Barbara, Isaac. ( his son was still farming 1891 census named Isaac and wife son Edward 21, Margaret A 19, Mary E 17, Janet E 11, Rachel M 7, Ruth J age about 5.
