From an account by Joan Arbour (for the full text see Joan Arbour) I feel sure that this is the cousin to whom she refers:

"My mother had a cousin, Frederick Jones [who lived in Macclesfield]. He lived in Dukinfield and then Abergele (Wales), he was a Painter and Decorator. In Abergele he and Florence his wife kept a boarding house. In Rhos on-sea Fred Jones was a wizard with clocks, all the antique dealers on that coast came to him with their clocks, but he could not speak properly. Fred Jones could hardly read or write, but could read and play music. He married again when he was 72, and we lost touch. They had one son, David, who was also backward at school. He could sketch and draw the most intricate designs and became an electrical engineer . He married and had I think two children - he may still live in Bollington and would be about 75 now.. During the war he was a Bevin Boy. Florence his wife died first, when I was about 20 years of age".
