EVANS / WILSON in Llangynog Wales

I am seeking information regarding an EVANS family of LLANGYNOG, Montgomeryshire, that of ROBERT EVANS b.1844, (son of ROBERT EVANS b. DOLGELLY, Merionethshire 1844), and his wife JANE; their eldest son, ROBERT EVANS, b.1864, died in France, 1916, (married to HANNAH MARIA and living in MERTHYR TYDFIL at the time of his enlistment); other children, WILLIAM, DAVID, EVAN, JOHN, HUMPHREY, ELLINOR, OWEN, EDWARD.

I believe the ROBERT EVANS who died in WW1 to be the brother of my grandfather ALFRED WILSON, born in LLANGYNOG c.1868. I have not been able to find ALFRED WILSON, who worked as a coal miner (hewer), on any census before 1901, when he is living in HOLLINWOOD, Lancashire with his wife MARY ELLEN BROOKS, whom he married in 1896. Apart from attending a funeral in Wales during WW1 and receiving a surprise visit from WILLIAM, he appears to have had no contact with his family; my mother sent a telegram to somewhere in Wales when he died in 1927. Any information to place my WILSON grandfather in the context of this EVANS family would be much appreciated.
