On Wednesday, January
14, 2004 some descendants of Penry and Elizabeth Morgan met at the Cwmbran RAFA
club. This was at a meeting of the Cwmbran Historical Society and at the start of
the evening there was a presentation and talk about the Monmouthshire and Brecon
canal by Mr. Phil Hughes of the Canal trust.
This presentation was
enjoyed by everyone present and after this event the Morgan family member's got
together to be introduced to each other and photo's brought by some were shared
Although this meeting
was almost spontaneous, it was enjoyed by everyone there and it is hoped that in
the near future a full family get together can be arranged.
If you would like this
to go ahead, can you contact me or Dawn Jones and let us know your
interest in this idea. As probably a buffet would be planned but then there would
have to be some charge to cover costs.
It will be 90 years
since Pte Penry Morgan died of his wounds and he was buried with full military
honours at St. Michaels church at Llantarnam.
The descendants that
Most were accompanied by
their partners and this was probably one of the biggest meetings of 'Morgan's'
for some years, some 23 descendants.
