Miriam was one of my great-grandmothers. She was born on 12 October 1888 to Daniel and Margaret (née Thomas), in Neath, Glamorgan.
In 1891, the 2 year old Miriam was living with her parents and sisters – Elizabeth Ann aged 16, 10 year old Mary and Catherine aged 6 at 4 Forest Terrace, Dylais Lower.
Ten years later, Daniel, Margaret and the girls had been joined at Chapel House, Aberdulais, by David, aged 9.
In 1911, the widowed Daniel, Elizabeth, Miriam and David were still living at Chapel House. Miriam was a Teacher.
Miriam gave her address as Chapel House in 1912 when she married my great-grandfather, William THOMAS.
