Residents of 'The Huts'


Mari Kelso tells us     My Aunt is on this  picture of the residents at the back on the right. Her name is Janet Simons was Jones and she is celebrating her 100th birthday this week (12th February 2015). She now lives in Sheffield.             

 She was brought up in The Huts along with my mother, Morfydd, who also lived to be 100, and her 3 brothers, their parents were Charlie and Mary Ann Jones. 

Their grandfather was William Jones who was a Check Weigher in the colliery (William Jones Check), he was quite a prominent member of Treharris life 100 years ago being a Councillor and deacon in Brynhyfryd Chapel. He died in 1928. The family later moved to Bargoed Terrace and they all left the area except for Tom the youngest who lived in Trelewis.

My mother was a District Nurse in Bedlinog in the late 1930s, during the time of Dr De Souza.

The boy in the second row from the back, 3rd from the right (cap ) is my Uncle Tom who lived in Caiach Terrace, Trelewis.
