Headstone Markings
of Paddy's Run
Old Welsh Cemetery
in Shandon, Ohio

Home Page

  This page is dedicated to sharing and preserving family information of early settlers of this area.
 

   Morgan Township was settled in 1802 by Welsh immigrants from Llanbrynmair, Montgomeryshire, Wales. The township was named after General Daniel Morgan for his victories in the American Revolutionary War; he too was a Welsh descendant from the colony of Virginia.

   The Paddy's Run Old Welsh Cemetery in Morgan Township was established in 1821 by the congregation of the White Water Congregational Church. This church is now holding services under the name of The Shandon Congregational Church of Shandon, Ohio.

   In later years German immigrants settled in the valley and were buried in the Paddy's Run Cemetery among the original Welsh settlers.

   The cemetery, adjacent to the old church (now called the Community House), is now being properly restored and nicely maintained by the Morgan Township Trustees who place American flags on the graves of ten war veterans each year. A study of the Old Welsh Cemetery, made for this documentation, identified a total of 315 grave sites.

   Some original Welsh settlers are also buried in the New London Cemetery on Alert-New London Road in Morgan Township. These names will be included in this listing at a future date. This cemetery is efficiently operated and nicely maintained by the New London Cemetery Association; Shandon, Ohio 45063; phone number (513) 738-4444

Information sources:
  1. Butler County, Ohio, Cemetery Records, Vol. 4 by Hazel Stroup; printed in 1963.
  2. Initial headstone readings by J. T. Johnson October, 2000 as collected from the cemetery during verification of the 1963 Hazel Stroup publication.
  3. A re-reading of all headstones in the Old Welsh Cemetery by, Bob & Joyce Smyth, Dick Ehrman and other members of the Morgan Township Historical Society completed during September & October 2003; all resulting information is incorporated in this record and correlated with the 1942 Williams Chart (see below) and 1963 listing by Stroup.
  4. Chart of headstone readings created in 1942 by Stephen Riggs Williams of Miami University; Oxford, Ohio; the chart is displayed in the Shandon Community House (the Old Welsh Church) at the time of this writing.
  5. Local families records as noted.
  6. Notes:
     
    1. Headstones not identified in 2003 headstone readings but identified by 1963 Stroup listing and also found on the 1942 Williams Chart are included here.  
    2. Headstone data shown only on the 1942 Williams chart are included in this listing.  
    3. Information on headstones identified in the 1963 listing by Stroup (above) but not found by Smyth/Ehrman 2003 headstone readings (above) or if not found on the 1942 S. R. Williams chart (above) are listed in the ADDENDUM to this file.
    4. Some headstones had enough information that correlated with Stroup and/or Williams; questionable or unreadable data was supplemented with information from Stroup or Williams if appropriate.
