from PM '...but dont know when his second wife died i heard it could of been in the 70s her name was Annie Jarrett. '.

As you know where and when Joseph died, have you looked for a death in the same area?

I assume this was the marriage?

Port Dinorwic is situated on the stretch of water between the Isle of Anglesey and the Welsh mainland known as the Menai Straits. It is just five miles from the Cities of Bangor and Caernarfon in North Wales.

The name 'Port Dinorwic' no longer appears on Maps, it is now known by its Welsh name Y-Felinheli.
