William Rees commented on Nov 02, 2006
I am William Rees, born Washington, DC from Indian Head, MD. My Rees forebearers are from Pennsylvania (Wilksboro/Scranton area) where some also migrated to Virginia. I can trace the family back several hundred years and believe REES #1 was John Rees, Quaker minister, came to PA on the ship "Lyon". I would like to establish contact with others who share similar ancestry. REES / ROBERTS / CARPENTER / HENDERSON / DUDLEY in MARYLAND are immediate ancestry. My father was Charles Clinton Rees (Apr 1913 - May 2003), born in Marbury, MD, eldest of two boys. His parents are William Alfred Rees and Dolly (Carpenter) Rees; all are buried at Pisgah Methodist Church, MD. My mother is Alice Novella (Dudley) Rees (Oct 1916 - Aug 2006), born Smith Point, MD, eldest of eleven. Her parents are Roby H. Dudley and Alice N. (Henderson) Dudley buried at Nanjemoy Baptist Church, MD cemetary.

I am trying to trace the family tree of naomi rees ( dob 1856). I think she was married to william rees (dob 1846) they had a daughter called Margaret (dob 1878). They had a coach house (half way house)that was very successful in south wales. Margaret Rees married Richard Morgan Walters (dob 1879) (miner)who then became a shop owner in Bargoed, South wales. They had six children. One of who was mymother Anne Walters. Any information to help me put the pieces together would be appreciated
