His father's name is recorded on the marriage certificate as James Jones
also and his occupation is listed as a farmer. The two birth certificates I have
are for a James Jones born on 14 May 1841 at Dixton and a James Jones born
Jan. 1842 at Llanarth - both of whom had fathers named James Jones !! Both were
