Me again, last one for the day!
Thomas Griffiths b. 3 Jul 1808 Wales, England. Trying to find out any information regardings this one! Family myth has it that he had a twin who went to America & somehow is connected to Gregory Peck...........
But I have been unable to find out anything about Thomas including when he came to South Australia.
Thanks all

Thomas Griffiths think he came from Llansphen, Radnorshire married Catherine Williams. Thinking he cam out to Australia 1849 listed as Mr T , wife & 6 children? Not 100% on this one!

Amanda
Just picked up your 2010 post regarding Thomas Griffiths. I have some SA information on thomas & Catherine, but am looking for details of how they got here and who Thomas' parents etc were.

He died in SA 1859 and Catherine re-married but you may have this info by now.

I am also a member of GR.

Where are you based. I am in Adelaide.

PS What happens now? Can your reply come via GR

Helene, since this is a 2 year old post I doubt that Amanda will be checking it. Your best bet would be to click on Amanda's name and send her a personal message.
