Country: Eaton, NY, USA
Comments: My grandmother told me that her father and his parents came from a place that sounded like Timpuh, Merionethshire, North Wales. The family story is that they were headed for Patagonia, but disliked traveling by sea, and when their ship docked in NYC, they disembarked. They came to upstate New York to join a large Welsh population already living in the Cazenovia/Nelson area. The name of my great-grandfather was John R. Jones or R. John Jones. His mother was named Grace Ellis. He was born in Wales around 1856 or 1860. I have no idea where to start to look for my Welsh ancestors. Can anyone help?

Comments: great maps! I know the hand-held camera issues & think you did well. I am interested in the changes in the maps around 1851-61 if any and again around 1880 if any... where should I look? thank you.

Comments: My ancestor was Ebenezer 'M.C.' Prichard. He lived in western NC in 1830-1890. His mother was named Absenith Prichard [father unknown] and I was just thinking that they were of Welsh descent. Just looking.
