New Photographic Discoveries: Great Uncle, David John Davies

Following on from yesterday, today I take a look at all the photographs I gained of David John Davies my great uncle. Not to be confused with David John Davies my great great uncle. The younger one was named after the older by his father, Price Davies.

Until I researched Redemption Tidings I had the following pictures of David John.

David John (Left), Glyndwr (Center) Idris (Right) Date: Circa 1940


David John and his father Price Davies. Date: Unknown

I am now able to add the following photographs to those two.

I feel fortunate to have pictures from his younger years and older years. There are many stories behind them, but I'm still piecing those together.

  1. Wow. You are blessed to have so many pictures of this one family member. Do you have a lot of pictures for other members of your family as well? What are you going to do with the pictures you have collected?

    1. I have quite a few of Harold now, but much less on my mothers side. I have a few plans for those I have collected. I am planning out a physical family history book, so the pictures will be included in that. I will also be putting them on pinterest on a page I have there.
