It's been quite sometime since my quest for information about Idris, so was surprised to find the news he was your grandfather.
You may already know his mother was Nellie (Ellen).
However, I shall fill you in how she was related to me.
It's a bit complicated.
Nellie married Gomer Williams in Aberdare, Wales, but sadly died shortly after, he then went on to marry her sister Ethel, they had 3 boys and 1 girl, still living in Aberdare The girl was my mother but after about four years she went to live with another sister Louise. As Gomer was a miner and involved in the strike at that time, it was thought she would be better off in another environment. Louise and her husband Edward brought her up from then on. Consequently they became my grandparents so we were not close to Gomer and Ethel and didn't have a lot of close contact.
If you need info on the Stockham family I shall be pleased to help.
Do you have any info on his teenage years, perhaps during the war or anything else you would like to share.
