Cefn Ydfa link? - Jenkins family of Llangynwyd / Maesteg area

Watkin Jenkins was born c.1830 in Llangynwyd / Maesteg. Watkin appears to have had brothers Thomas bn c.1826 Llangynwyd and William born 1833. Watkin and Thomas were in Hirwaun, Aberdare by 1841 living with 60 year old tea dealer Daniel Jenkins born out of county. A lodger and visitor with Watkin on 1861 census were William Jenkin, possible brother, born c. 1833 Maesteg, lodger and Lewis Jenkins born c.1852 Hirwaun, visitor.
At marriage in 1853 to Elizabeth Craven, Watkin gave the name of his father as Morgan Jenkins, a farmer but deceased. I have eliminated Morgan and Jennet Jenkins of Cwmdu as Watkin’s parents. I have found a Morgan Jenkins christened 31/1/1801 at Llangynwyd, son of William and Jane Jenkins of Cefn Ydfa. There are baptisms of possible siblings Jane 1796, C 1798 and Margaret 1803.
Does anyone have any further information that might help confirm that this is the correct Morgan father of Watkin or anything that can help me reconstruct this branch of my family?
