Witnesses-. Steven Evans; John Jarman; Rees Peter; John Richard-, Daniel Harry-, Rees Jones; William David, Griffith Miles; Richard Moore; Rees Price Junior; David Price-, Alexander Edward; Ellis Pugh; David Evan-, David Meredith, James James; Williarn Jarnes; Samuel Miles; Philip Evan; Evan Harry; Howell Jarnes- John Owen, Joshuah Owen-, William Thomas; Thomas Jons; Philip Philips; John Longworthy; Elizabeth Price-, Magdalen Kinsey, Phebe Stephen-, Mary Jones; Elizabeth Humphrey; Mary Evans, Ann Jones
[Ruby's Note: According to "Merion in the Welsh Tract" p.96-7 I extract the following: Edward Rees, alias Prees, or Price, by which last name his descendants called themselves, and by which he was frequently designated, came to Meriod with Dr. Edward Jones, in August 1681... The Will of Edward Rees is dated 28 Nov 1728 and proved at Philadelphia 1727-8. Mentions son Rees Prees, grandson, Edward, and cousins, Peter, David and Jane Evans, etc. He m/1: in Wales, Mably, d/o Owen ap Hugh.... She d. in 1699; Edward Rees m/2: Rebecca Humphrey. By his first wife he had Rees Prees (alias Price b. 11th 1678; Catharine bur. Merion 1681; Jane b. 9th mo 11th, 1682; m/1 Jonathan Hayes; m/2: ___ Maries..... Rees Price m/1: Radnor 10 6th 1705 to Sarah Meredith and m/2: 10mo 9th 1718 to Elizabeth Ellis, d/o Ellis Ellis." So, on Reese Price, I see no relationship but they must have been close as my Daniel Harry was at the wedding of Reese Price and Elizabeth Williams above. I do believe that Daniel Harry was related to Ellis Ellis in some way however. It is possible that we are also talking of two different men named Reese Price and I welcome descendants of Reese to enlighten me.]

[Note: Received the following via the internet:]
Saw your question one night while I was cruising the internet looking for genealogy.
Mary Price of Radnor who married Abel Roberts 1701
Answer: July 1998
She was the daughter of Isaac Price, immigrant from Wales. He died in February 1706/07 in Chester Co., PA. Will probated 1 March 1706/07. Mary Price had a brother Isaac and a sister Gwen. She married again after Abel Roberts death to Roger Roberts. Katherine Price was her daughter to Abel Roberts and married John Lewis, the son of Henry Lewis, 6 January 1725 at Radnor Mtg. Katherine was born 28 October 1702 in Radnor Twp., Chester Co., PA. Abel Roberts and Mary Price also had another daughter, Rachel who married Evan Evans.
I picked up on this question because she is one of my ancestors. I hope my answer helps with your research.
Good luck with your research, Alice Beard
Rees Prees of Merion m. Sarah Meredith 1705
How are they related to each
other and (hopefully) Sybill?
