I will have to go backwards on this. I have Elizabeth (Davies) married to William Williams 1852 Llanelly. 1881 Census has dau.Elizabeth b. 1861 son William b.1862 Sarah b. 1866 (Sarah marr.David Saunders).
Can anyone see on 1871 Census if another child born before 1861 please.
Address on 1881 Census being 28 Wern Rd, Llanelly.

I followed the second Elizabeth at Berwick Llanelly and now find after looking at someone's tree she was wrong Elizabeth.

Would like to think Elizabeth went to USA at her age but as yet have not found a son by name of Harry.
Thank you for your time.

No sign of Elizabeth or William on 1901.

John Morris (Sarah's uncle) is now living with Sarah + her new husband.

Thank you Dea, Right family. clue being John Morris child of Elizabeth's sister. John's parents died leaving young family.
Will have to check marr. date of Elizabeth and William as there seems to be a long wait for children. thanks for info.
