Bedd mam Ffoadur Belgaidd yn Nhalacharn 

Ym mynwent eglwys St Martin, Talachre, gwelir ger drws yr eglwys bedd Ffoadur o Wlad Belg, Leonie de Moulin. Mae croes bren yn nodi ei bedd (bellach mae’r pren ar draws ar goll) a phlac yn rhoi’r enw gan nodi ei bod yn fam. Mae yma hanes gudd sydd eto i’w dadorchuddio a’r cyswllt lleol yw Janet Bradshaw. Yn yr un fynwent ceir bedd Dylan Thomas a’i wraig Caitlin.
