I have found out more since I last asked for help so I am going to add what I have posted on ancestary and see if anyone from here may be able to help.
Sarah Jane Jones (abt 1868 died jan 6 1939) Thomas Wood (abt 1864 died march 4 1957)married nov 27 1886,montgomery county, both father's first names were John, 6 of the boys came to ny usa before 1938, the others were still in Wales at that time, would like any information on either family. Walter, one of their sons was my grandfather who died in a car accident dec 25, 1938 in ny usa. My mother at that time was 4.
