Research Tips

Licking County has a special interest in that it had two independent groups of settlers -- Welsh immigrants leaving a failed settlement in Beulah in Somerset County, Pennsylvania, and settlers from New England. Sources that cover one group may take little notice of the other. Here's a chapter from an 1881 history that describes the Welsh settlement [1] -- scroll down to page 241 -- from the Anglo point of view.
