Jones, Miles, & Webb families from Wales immigrated to US in 1842

Looking for the Jones's,
Looking for any information on the Jones Family including Robert Jones b: 1813, William b: 1817, John b: 1818, Evan & Griffith b: 1821, Owen b: 1823, William b: 1835, Margaret b: 1840, Richard & Sarah A b: 1841, Joseph Henry b: 1844.

Owen Jones was my g-g-grandfather. Robert was his brother and we believe the others were siblings or somehow related to the same family. They arrived in the U.S. we believe on the ship The Hindoo in 1842. They were a family of coalminers. We have recently learned that their parents may have been William Richard Jones b; 1800 and Mary (Sion or Zion) b: 1801 but we can't confirm.

We think they were from somewhere in or near Cefn Mawr, Denbighshire, Llandilo Fawr, Mountain Ash or Merthyr Tydfil, Glamorgan, Caernevon, or possibly Rhydfelin.

They may have been traveling on ship with the WEBB and/or MILES Families. They immigrated to Pennsylvania initially and then relocated mostly in Illinois.

Would love to chat with anyone who might know about this family.
