Off to America in the morning / Gadael Cymru

In relation to Marie’s family history enquiry (Latest Comments section), a newspaper report in Welsh on Rhandirmwyn from “Y Tyst Cymreig” on the 16th of April, 1869, states that 40 people are leaving the area for America this month (most probably Pennsylvania).

Possibly Marie’s family were part of this exodus from the Blaenau Tywi valley.
