This photo was among the many that my in-laws have collected over the years.  We don't know who it is, and there are no family members that we know of with the surname Thomas.  

Neither of my in-laws know of anyone in St. Dogmael's Cemetery in the county of Dyfed, formerly known as Pembrokeshire.  They also cannot remember taking the photo or seeing this headstone.  So, this interesting stone remains a mystery to us.  The last two lines, which might provide some clues, are unclear; I've included what we can decipher above.

  1. Priscilla Evans Thomas, daughter of Timothy Thomas, married John Owen Jones (son of Morgan Jones of Carmarthen). Perhaps your in laws are related through that line.
