b. at Gwarcwm Bach, Llancynfelyn, Cards., 11 October 1832, son of Humphrey Jones and Elizabeth, daughter of Hugh Rowlands, Tre'rddôl. His parents emigrated to America in 1847, and he was brought up by his aunt at Tre'rddôl. He began to preach at the age of 15, and in 1854, being unsuccessful as a candidate for the Wesleyan ministry, he left for Oshkosh, Wisconsin, where revivals were in full swing. Jones caught the fire, and on returning to Tre'raddôl started the Welsh Revival of 1858-60, and, with David Morgan, Yspyty (1814 - 1883), was very successful. The strain proved too much for him, and he retired, leaving the field to Morgan. In 1871, he returned to America with his health impaired physically and mentally. He was a hospital patient at Winnebago, Wisconsin, for five years. On his discharge he resumed preaching and took charge of small Welsh churches at Cambria and South Bend, Minnesota. He died at Chilton, Wisconsin, 8 May 1895, and was buried at Brant, Wisconsin.

JONES, HUMPHREY ROWLAND (1832 - 1895).

His father's name was Hugh Jones. His birthplace was not Gwarcwm Bach. His christening is recorded in the parish register on 10 November as that of the son of Hugh and Elizabeth Jones of ‘Trerddol alias Yniscapel’. He was born either in the home of his mother's parents, the Half-way Inn, Tre'rddôl, or in that of his father's parents, Ynyscapel. He was between 4 and 6 years of age when the family settled at Gwarcwm Bach sometime between 1836 and 1838.
