Daniel Snr is a Farm Labourer, which I have seen recorded as Farmer on marriage certs.

I know, Rees in Wales!!!! However if anyone has any details besides 1891 and 1901 census of Daniel Rees born about 1855 in Taffs Well, Glamorgan - Married 1881 to Mary Richards I would be very happy to receive.
Thank you.
