    1. [FRONGOCH-WALES] Evan Robert Lewis of Frongoch
    2. Emily, Thank you for your prompt response and for your welcome . I will repeat my message to see if our communication link is working - I have read, with great interest ,all th e-mails on your Rootsweb website FRONGOCH - WALES - L Archives. I am researching my ancestors from the Bala area of North Wales. All my ancestors as far as I know came from the Bala area. I was brought up in Wales but I am now living in England. My gtX5 grandmother was Gwen John Evan who died in 1730 in Bala. I am trying to establish if she was the daughter of John ap Evan of Penmaen , Bala who died in 1696 (probate of his will granted in 1697) . John ap Evan was the son of Evan Robert Lewis of Fron Goch. Bala. In this will he mentions his daughter Gwen John ( a widow) and she was also an executor. In the FRONGOCH-WALES-L- Archives I have seen many references to Griffith John and Jane John (wife of Robert Cadalader of Llanuwchllyn ) who were the brother and sister of this Gwen John. The only other reference which I have found relating to Gwen John is on page 180 Vol 1 of "The Welsh Founders of Pennsylvania" by T. A. Glenn where it states the following - Gwen vch John (or Jones) of near Bala, co Mer. wid. John_______ , and dau. John Evans (otherwise John ap Evan), of Penmaen, par. of Llanfor, co. Mer. Rmd to Gwynedd, Penna., abt 1698. She m. 2dly, John Humphrey, of Gwynedd. It also states that their children were the Jane Jones who married Evan Griffith in 1707: David Jones (of Gwynedd Penns.) who married Lowry Roberts in 1707 and Cadwalader Jones.(of Gwynedd Penns.)----Elizabeth . Unfortunately the book does not state the source of this information and therefore I would be very grateful if you could provide me with any evidence that this statement in the book is correct or provide me with other information about Gwen John. I am trying to find the source evidence that she did in fact go to Pennsylvania which would probably prove that my Gwen John Evan is not the same person ! Regards, Elfed Owen (U. K.)
