Hello, I am Rees and Ann's great-great grand daughter. My great-grandfather was thier first born, Rees Willam. I have the names and dates for their children, whom they had in America after they travelled as pioneers in 1856. I would be happy to share what I have. I am in England at the moment, but was born and raised in America. Feel free to e-mail if you would like more information.

Rees R. and Ann Llewellyn were my second great grandparents. I am descended from their son, Gomer David, born in 1864, who had ten children - including my grandmother. If you want to know specifically about Rees R. and Ann, here is a link to a web page. It contains much information on their American adventure which I hope you will find helpful. Look for a subtitled section with the Llewellyn name.

I am interested in knowing more about their Welsh roots. I know nothing beyond what I read in the above article. Please contact me at mobryan@mail.fehb.org if you can help. I can fill in more recent tales of Gomer's descendants if you would like to know them.

Rees Rees Llewellyn and his wife Ann were my mothers great grandparents. They immigrated to Utah by handcart in 1856 in a company led by Edward Bunker. I have a biography of Rees and Ann and access to pictures. I am so thrilled to possibly have access to some research for earlier ancesters as most of the Welch records haven't been released to the public and need to be viewed in Wales. I've been looking fruitlessly for a marriage record and birth records of Rees and Ann. I'm also looking for verificaton of Rees's father Rees Llewellyn and his mother Margaret Williams as well as his grandfather Thomas Llewellyn and Eleanor Reese. All I have is that Rees Llewellyn was born in Feb 1780 in Methyr Tydfil Glamorgan Wales and died in Gellyfailog, Methyr Tydfid Glams Wales in1839. Margaret Williams was born in 1780 in Abardare Glmrgan, Wales and died in Dowlais, Glamorgans Wales. I would be very happy to do any research for you on the decendants or Rees Rees Llewellyn or anyone else you are interested in in return for your help in finding original records in Wales as I'm hoping for some verification of the few bits I have. I'm also unable to read Welch which is daunting. I'l wait anxiously for a reply from you, and would like to know more about you, as well. Thanks so much!!!

I am not related to Rees Llewellyn , but I live in the third (and final house) that Rees and Ann lived in in Fountain Green. The first home (a one room log cabin) is in our back yard and is used as a shed. The second home is just across the street. If you would like pictures of the homes, I would be happy to email them to you. You may already know this, but Rees became a very prominent man. He was the first mayor of Fountain Green and was the postmaster in town. He was also a faithful Latter-day Saint. When our home was about half completed, Rees was called on a mission to return to Wales and preach the gospel. He was gone about 4 years, I believe. When he returned, the home was finished, but you can see that the brick on the second story varies from that on the first story. I consider it a physical reminder of his dedication to his faith.
I found your post while researching where in Wales the Llewellyns came from. Thanks so much for the info. Let me know if you would like pictures. I'd love to send them to you
