Ok, now here is where skeletons fall out of cupboards I think! Thanks to ancestry publishing probate records, I may have released one. Catherine francis was born in Llangadfan in 1871 and later lived in Llangadfan. She had 2 children - with no fathers on birth certificates. William and Elizabeth Elin francis. It appears she left her estate of £214 5s 8d not to her children, but to David Pierce Roberts, a school master.

So... has anyone ever heard of him? Could he have been their father? A later lover? Could she have left the money - via him, to the school? All i can find about him is a possible marriage in 1908 to a Catherine Ellis. Help needed to unravel this one gratefully received!
