Hi Martin Sorry about deleting your post. I was removing spam and your post was mistakenly removed :oops: All sorted

Someone might be interested in this message that I posted in the Gwynedd family history mailing list after seeing a grave in Kilkerran whilst photographing war graves for one of the war grave photography projects..

The latest Gwynedd Roots has a picture that I took a few years ago in Kilkerran Burial Ground in Campbeltown, Argyll.

This reads

CATHERINE JONES
IN MEMORY OF HER HUSBAND
ROBERT JONES
CAPTN. OF THE SMACK
MAJOR NANNEY
OF PWLLHELI
WHO DIED 25TH JAN

I recently received some Emails about this grave from David Brown and have
pasted these below. If anyone has any further information I will pass it on
to him. I will post the three pictures mentioned on my website later
