Looking for William Jenkins from Newport,Mon, S.Wales

Journal by Clare

My great grandmother was a Margaret Jenkins born in Newport Mon in about 1855/6. In April 1874 she married a John Miller also from Newport, Mon and on the Marriage Certificate is states that her father was a William Miller, forman in a steel works.
I haven't yet been able to find her birth and need to find her family who might have moved to Cardiff, S.Glam.
In the 1871 census I think I have found her in Cowbridge Road, Canton,Cardiff as a Domestic Servant, aged 15 but I have been unable to find her on the 1861 census aged 5 so am unable to find out the name of her mother.

I am just beginning to research my mother's ancestry. She was Janet Jenkins, b. 1904 in Dayton, OH. Her father was William P. Jenkins, born in Wales, I believe. His sisters were Laura Jenkins Haney and Elizabeth Jenkins, b. in Wales, immigrated to Ohio and d. in Dayton. William P. owned 5 drugstores in Dayton. Aunt Elizabeth ("Lizzie") was the first female pharmacist in Ohio. She never married.

William P. Jenkins married Edna Grace Schaefer, my maternal grandmother.

Everyone survived the 1913 Dayton flood.

I'd be grateful for any further information about this family tree.

Hi
I don't know if we are connected as I have no details about Margaret's family except for what was on her marriage cert which said her father was a William Jenkins who was a Forman in a steel works. On various census's it said that she was born in Newport but other than that I have not been able to trace any record of her or her side of the family. I don't know if any of her family emmigrated to Ohio.
