Seek any and all information on the following Jones brothers:
My great-grandfather Isaac Jones, son of Evan Jones and Margaret Lloyd, Neuadd ddu farm, Pontyberem, Llanddarog Parish, Carmarthenshire, S. Wales, emigrated from Wales to Pittston, PA in 1853. He m. Jane Davis in 1858. Isaac was a founder and first Deacon of the Welsh Congregational Church in Edwardsville, PA. Isaac was killed in a well cave-in in 1870, leaving five sons, Richard R. b.1859 (my grandfather), William J. b.1861, John W. b. 1863, David P. b.1866 and Isaac E. b. 1869.

Have recently learned that Isaac's brothers Richard and David also emigrated from Wales to America, but have no details as to dates or destinations. Am especially interested in information on Richard and David and their families and possible descendants in America.
For additional info see my webpage at:

Thanks, Richard Jones
