Aberystwyth,Wales

My grandmother always would say that she had family in Aberystwyth, Wales that came to America. I have determined that the Davies branch came from Carmarthenshire, and did not sail until 1870. I was wondering if it could be the Howell/Howells branch. I have no information on the Howell/Howells family any farther back than William G. Howell[s], b. 1853 -- no one has listed where he was born but that he died about 1910 in Pennsylvania. We are unsure of the name of his wife, but we believe she was born about the same time and also died about the same time in Pennsylvania. I would appreciate any help anyone might be able to give. I have no list of their parents. The only child I have for them is Lilla (sometimes listed as Lydia or Lillian) Howell, born in 1875 (probably in the USA) and died in 1910 (Taylor, PA). Her dates I am fairly sure about as she was my grandmother's mother, and she died when her three children were very young.
