Owen ancestor from Caernarvon Wales

Posted: 25 Apr 2007 9:31AM GMT
Classification: Query
Surnames: Owen, Rowlands, Griffiths
Looking for clarification on two location names that I am unable to find information on.

1.) "Glanbweies" and 2.) "Cromyglo"

My G.Grandfather, Richard Michael Owen, was born Jun-14-1887 in Cromyglo, Wales per his WW-I Draft Registration Card. Richard immigrated from Caernarvon Wales to the USA on Nov-27-1909 and settled in Chicago, IL. I am not sure where I found name "Glanbweies" but it is in my record.

The 1909 ship manifest states his mother was Jane Owen, residing in Llwyncold(?) Cromyglo, Caernarvon. The 1954 obit(Chicago) for Richard Owen states that he had two sisters in Great Britain: Gwynn Rowlands & Jennie Griffiths.

Any information would be appreciated. Thank you!
