Notes: V. The Welsh and Politics

1R. D. Thomas:
Hanes Cymry America, Part III, p. 67.
2In this work I have had to rely on the names as an evidence of Welsh blood. Though this is a notoriously fallible guide, yet it is the only one available and must serve.
3See the lists in P. Jones:
Annals, pp. 37 ff.
4Jones: Annals, p. 310 and Wager:
Our County, p. 508.
5Wager:
Our County, p. 439.
6P. Jones said of Remsen in 1850: "Competent residents of the town believe that at least three-fourths of its population are Welsh" and the same author thought a majority of the people in Steuben were Welsh. See his
Annals, pp. 306 and 429. Ll. D. Howell in 1859 said: "It is said that in the two places above [Steuben and Remsen] there are at present seven Welshmen to every one of another nationality. See his pamphlet, p. 18. As there were always some not yet naturalized, the Welsh in the list of voters were a smaller proportion than in the whole population.
7See P. Jones:
Annals, pp. 33-35 for complete tables of Oneida County.

Cenhadwr, 1845, p. 167. In 1837 before Y Cenhadwr was established, Everett had received a long letter which he had published in the Friend of Man in Welsh and English, from the Welsh people convened in county assemblies in Merionethshire, Carnarvonshire and Montgomeryshire, urging the Welsh in America "to use all suitable and lawful means in cooperation with your fellow citizens to remove this curse from your fair land". See The Philanthropist, Nov. 7, 1837. In 1857 we find Rev. D. Price of Dynbych lecturing in Birkenhead against slavery. The chairman then expressed the desire that the lecture might be given all through Wales as a means to prepare the minds of those Welsh emigrating to America to turn their influence against slavery.  Cenhadwr, 1857, p. 39.
