I'm trying to learn more about a Joseph Price, b.abt.1800 in Breconshire. I'm specifically looking for any leads on (or ways to eliminate) any other Prices living in Breconshire at that time.
As a young man, Joseph made his way to Dowlais in Glamorgan, where he most likely worked in the coal mines supporting the Dowlais Iron Works. Joseph m.Dec 1826 in Merthyr Tydfil to Johanna (or Joanna) Jones (b.abt.1807 in Glamorgan).
Their four eldest children (John, Mary Ann, Elizabeth and Thomas) were born in Dowlais. The family emigrated to the Pennsylvania coal region abt.1833. There were five more children born in Pennsylvania: Samuel, William, Jane, Johanna and Richard.
Joseph died in 1874 in Pennsylvania, there's no death certificate or other document that provides any information about his parents.
Any suggestions whatsoever would be most welcome.
Thanks, Darren Price
