Hi Shiralee, he is listed in the census' i have added tp your previous post
Herbert Broom 1878-1910 son of Worthy Broom 1840-1911 and Margaret, nee Jones married Margaret Henderson in 1903
Both SilverVixen and janilye,
I am so very grateful to be able to understand this relationship. My late mother-in-law had been without her parents for a long time, & when she gave me this obituary, with 2 others (Worthy & Margaret BROOM), she did not have the connections. Her grandfather (David BROOM) died after only a few years in NZ, & direct family information has been long lost. Thank you for your wonderful input via Family Circles. I am happy to supply photos & any history of NZ descendants of David BROOM, is asked.
for anyone interested in the locations (as I was)
Pontymister is a small village in Caerphilly county borough in Wales.
from The development of Pontymister ... The Pontymister ironworks began in 1801. First it was connected by a tramroad to the canal, but when the tramroad from Newport to Sirhowy was opened in 1805, the ironworks tramroad was connected with the Sirhowy tramroad
Thank you for this ngairedith - I do hope descendants of Herbert get to read this.
According to Herbert's gravestone in Bethesda Chapel, Rogerstone, his wife was Emily Broom. Having searched FreeBMD's database he did marry a Henderson and also an Emily, in September 1903. I've searched for an Emily Henderson and Margaret Henderson, but it doesn't find a match. Perhaps she was Margaret Emily. Janilye, do you have atranscript of the marriage?
Silvervixen, than you very much for this. I am very glad I posted the obituaries I had, as I have been able to be in touch with a direct relative of my husband. Mike Watkins has a site to which I am now affiliated.
I just hope a direct descendant of Herbert is glad to get his obituary.
Keep going with your good work. ;-) !
