  Looking for additional information on William and Catherine Rowland - living at Rhosy-Bayvil, near Nevern ... 1650 - 1700.

 

 I am decended from a son, John, who immigrated to Chester County, Pennsylvania about 1700.

 

 In 2004, on a trip to Wales, I found the family homestead - still standing and looking good.  Would like some background information on the family before they came to the USA.

 

 Thanks !!!
