History of the Welsh Church in Jackson, Ohio

Hanes Eglwys Gymreig Jackson, Ohio by E. O. Roberts

 

In 2011, at my suggestion, Martha A. Davies, of the Great Plains Welsh Heritage Project in Wymore, NB, translated this little gem of a book that my father had given me before his death. I knew it contained a great deal of information on many Welsh-Americans who were members of the Welsh Church in Jackson at the turn of the century. I thought it would be a valuable tool for those doing family history and genealogical research.

Copies of Martha Davies' translation are available in the Maddog Center for $12.95 plus shipping. Contact us for more information.

A large scrapbook of newspaper clipping from the Roberts' family is also housed in our library. It gives a rare view into life in Jackson, Ohio, in the early 1900's when the town was growing rapidly from the efforts of the enterprising Welsh immigrants.
