This meeting was very well attended to hear about the life of Edward Wynne Williams, one of the pioneers of the Colorado gold fields. Through the medium of a PowerPoint we followed the story of the man from Tyddyn Gwladys, Ganllwyd who emigrated to the United States in 1869 before making his fortune by owning a number of the gold mines of Colorado. He was an extremely colourful character in his work-life and love-life it seems! A number of Edward Wynne Williams’s relatives attended the meeting, many of them still living in the Dolgellau area and proud of their relationship.
