very interesting history, thanks for sharing!
My great grandparents came from Wales to Vermont to work in the slate quarrys in the late 1800's. In Wales they worked in the coal mines. Rupert Vt. and Granville, NY was where many of them settled. There is a slate museum in Granville, NY that tells the story of the Welsh families and their contributions to the area.
