Some Welsh Burials at St. Paul's (Straub's) Lutheran Church

Walking through the graveyard at Straub's Lutheran Church on Frosty Valley Road, Valley Township, one will find a number of Welsh names - Thomas, James, Davis, Lloyd, to name a few.  Nearby were iron mines where many of the Welshmen were employed.  Please contact the webmaster if you'd like to see if your ancestor is listed here.
