Thomas R. Jones b. 1842

I am hunting for my roots. My great grandfather was Thomas R. Jones, born in Merthyr Tydfi in 1842. I think his father was William and mother Anni. He married Gwenllian Thomas (b. 1843, Merthyr Tydfi, father Thomas Thomas born 1812)in 27 May 1867 at St. Elvans Church, by Rev. David Davies, witnessed by Thomas Thomas and Thomas Evans.

They had two children born in Aberdare, Thomas William Jones 1871, and Morgan William Jones 1875. They came to the USA in 1876, and became a singing teacher.

We were told that Thomas was a member of the award winning South Wales Choral Union, Cor Mawr, conducted by 'Caradog.'

I am looking for relative of both Thomas and Gwenllian, parents and siblings and hoping to find members of my extended family. I am planning a trip to Wales in the short future and would love to see where my family came from.
