My real interest in this posting is Lewis (Louis) Marfell, but I do follow siblings and parents of partners.

I now firmly believe that Louis Marfell & Evangeline Amanda Morgan nee Roberts did not marry, but lived together as man and wife and that it takes a strange person to abandon 8 children including one of 6 years of age to emigrate to another country, taking one of her children with her.

Linda has very kindly emailed the marriage certificate between William Henry Morgan and Evangeline Roberts which took place at the Wesleyan Chapel Monmouth on 24th March 1888 and it clearly shows that William Henry Morgan was a widower, so delving further into the background of people connected but not related to me, I discover this :

William Henry Morgan's parents were James Morgan 1827 and Sarah Bethel 1830, so "Admin" will note that William Henry Morgan's sister Sarah 1867 married Frederick Watkins 1865, illegitimate son of Esther Watkins 1838.
