Trying to locate Walter Bowen baptised at St.Elli, Llanelly, Carmarthenshire 19th March 1778.

Grateful for any info. He seems to be only son so easier to locate than sisters who probably married. Many thanks.

Do you have any evidence to suggest he survived to be on any census ?

Also he could have been any age when baptised

Thanks everyone, Confused but will try to sort him out. Trying to put the right children to right parents is not easy for Family tree.
