I have been lead to believe that ancestors of mine came to work in the Slate Quarries in Newfoundland. I am trying to find out where they might have worked and lived.

Owen John Jones was a quarryman from the Dinorwic Quarry in North Wales and he and his sons John Owen Jones and Robert Owen Jones, supposedly travelled over to Newfoundland to work, perhaps other sons also?

I am also trying to track them sailing back and forth from the UK probably Liverpool to where? Did ships sail to and from St John and the UK?

John Owen Jones emigrated from St John Newfoundland 17th November 1900 to New York
Robert Owen Jones followed his brother to the States in 1901.

I now live in Ontario Canada after leaving North Wales in 2000.
Any information and help would be gratefully received.
Christine (nee Jones)
