52 Ancestors Week 47 - Thomas Edwards

Thomas Edwards was born somewhere near Buckley or Mold, Wales around 1815. In the 1830’s or 40’s, in Wales he married Elizabeth Crofts. It’s possible he was married prior to this, but it’s still unclear. Between 1845 and 1847 he and his family moved to Durham, England where they worked in the coal mines there. They had 9 children. Thomas died between 1891 and 1901 (probably in 1893 in Hartlepool, England).
