Grave 294a

 

hello

Wow what a great website......it's nice to see some of the old gravestones again!!I visited Brecon and Llanspyyddid in 1982 and i have a couple of revisions to the gravestones for you. My name is Mike Probert and the gravestone of my ggg grandparents is located there. Under the listing
Probert ? of Pontwilliam
Probert, John of Pontwilliam
Probert, Jane of Pontwilliam
Pontwilliam is infact "Pontwillim" and refers to Lower Pontwillim Farm just outside of Brecon at Vennyfach.John & Jane Probert are my ggg-grandparents.The "?" refers to my gg grandfather James Prosser Snead Probert who departed this life on May 18th 1879 and was interred at St Paul's, Port Adelaide, South Australia aged 38.

 

i have attached a copy of this basestone, which i chalked in over 30yrs ago.
i am slowly checking the photos on your website and will advise if i find other errors/corrections.
best regards mike [Melbourne, Australia]
