Query by ALV

These are my maternal great great grandparents and their children

ELIZABETH born 1855 Pyle, Glamorgan
GEORGE born 1860 Ystrad, Glamorgan
WILLIAM born 1862 Ystrad, Glamorgan
SARAH JANE born 1868 Ystrad, Glamorgan

These are my maternal great grandparents and their children

THOMAS MAY born 1857 Ystrad, Glamorgan, Wales died 20 July 1917 Ystrad, Glamorgan, Wales; married ELIZABETH EDWARDS (born 1860 Dowlais, Glamorganshire, Wales; died 7 Oct 1943 Ystrad) 1880 Pontypridd, Wales

SPENCER EDWARD MAY born 21 Mar 1901 Ystrad, Wales; died 21 Mar 1956 Auckland, NZ; married DAISY MAUD SCOTT (born 1 Mar 1899 Blaenclydach, Wales; died 10 Feb 1982 Auckland, NZ) 1923 Tonypandy , Glamorgan, Wales.

These were my mother's parents.

Thanks to janilye for providing the four missing children of Thomas MAY and Elizabeth EDWARDS, I am still two short and they are probably the ones who died young.

There were 13 children born of which two had died before the 1911 census.

I would like to know more about my great grandfather's brothers and sisters. I would really be thankful.

Any information anyone can provide on either Thomas MAY and Elizabeth EDWARDS (like their full birth date, siblings, parents etc) or Thomas MAY and Elizabeth VICKERY (like their full birth date, siblings, parents etc) would also be appreciated.
