Rees shown as brother to Thomas with mother Ann. That would make Ann 55 when Rees was born, which is highly unlikely.

Perhaps the son of elder daughter or adopted into family??

Ann would seem a little old to have a 9 year old son?

Not impossible, I suppose, but I think it unlikely.

Look for birth on freebmd........if it's there.......get the cert for facts

Please, Pamela, when asking for help give full location info.......'Talley' means nothing to most people.

Births Jun 1881 (>99%)

WILLIAMS Benjamin Rees Llandovery 11a 849

The drawback is that Llandovery district does not apparently include a place called 'Talley'
