Northern Wales.  TRAWSFYNYDD, a parish in the hundred of Ardudwy, county Merioneth, 12 miles N of Dolgelly, and 9 from Harlech.  Carnarvon is its post town.  It is situated on the Sarn Helen Way, and on the river Maw, which here forms several cascades, called Pistylt-y-Cain and Mawddach falls, the former 150 feet and the latter 60 feet descent.  There are several lakes, the largest of which is Rathlyn Lake, abounding in trout.  The parish comprises near 100 square miles.  The land is chiefly in barren sheep-walks.  Copper and lead exist.  In the vicinity numerous relics of antiquity have been discovered, including Castel Pryor, a British or Roman fort, and an inscribed stone at Bedd Porus bearing date 1275.  The living is a rectory in the diocese of Bangor, value £179, in the patronage of the bishop.  The church is dedicated to St. Madryn.  Bishop Lloyd was born here in 1600.  There are schools for both sexes, one of which has a small endowment.  The Calvinistic Methodists have a chapel.[From The National Gazetteer of Great Britain and Ireland (1868) Transcribed by Colin Hinson ©2003]

 

TRAWSVYNYDD, of North Wales, containing 1450 inhabitants. This parish, the village of which is situated on an eminence in an exposed and open mountainous district, on the turnpike road from Tan y bwlch to Dolgelley, is more than ten miles in length and eight in breadth, and more than one-half, consisting of barren hills, is uncultivated, affording on scanty pasturage for sheep and young cattle.  The surrounding country is strikingly varied, presenting in some parts the dreary wildness of rugged mountain scenery, in others the softer features of rural beauty, combined with objects of picturesque and romantic grandeur.  The lake called Llyn Rathlyn is a fine sheet of water, noted for a peculiar species of perch, having the lower extremity of the back bone strangely distorted:  the interesting waterfalls of Pistyll Cain and Pistyll Mawddach, in this parish, have been described in the article on Dolgelley.  Fairs, which are in general well attended, are held here on April 23rd and September 29th, for horses, cattle; and pedlery; and at Penystryd, in this parish, others are held on August 17th and September 21st.  The living is a discharged rectory, in the archdeaconry of Merioneth, and diocese of Bangor, rated in the king's books at £ 8. 12. 1., and in the patronage of the Bishop of Bangor.  The church, dedicated to St. Madryn, is an ancient structure, in the early style of English architecture.  There are places of worship for Independents and Calvinistic and Wesleyan Methodists, with Sunday Schools attached to each.  David Lloyd, in 1686, bequeathed £20 to the poor; Robert Roberts (a relative), in 1756, gave £ 12 to be distributed in bread; and Mrs. Jones, near Corwen, and her daughter-in-law, bequeathed £ 180, directing that the interest should be appropriated to the annual distribution of £4, in sums of five shillings each, to sixteen poor women, and the remaining £ 4. 10. to the apprenticing of a poor boy once in two years.  There are some remains of an ancient fortress called Castell Prysor, the name of which implies its hasty erection: it is of small extent, and occupied a situation in a pass between the hills on the left of the road from Trawsvynydd to Bala.  The origin of this fortress, which is built of stone without any cement, is not precisely known:  but, from the discovery of several urns and coins near the site, it is supposed to have been either built or occupied by the Romans; and part of a Roman road, now called the Sarn Helen.which is still visible at no great distance, in some degree corroborates this opinion.  On a farm in this parish, called Llech Idris, is Bedd Porus, or the grave of Porus,over which is a flat stone with the inscription Porus hic in tumulo jacit, homo-pianus fuit.The word pianus has been thought to have been originally Christianus; but although the letter p has by some been considered an r, it does not appear ever to have been read t, and the interval between it and homo is insufficient for the five preceding letters.  Near this spot is an upright stone, called Llech Idris, from which the farm takes its name, and concerning which there is a legend stating it to have derived that appellation from a giant named Idris; but it appears to be simply one of those monumental stones so frequently found in this county.  Near the Sarn Helen are several tumuli, in one of which were found five urns, and several fragments of bricks, which had been placed round them to protect them from injury:  there is also a tumulus on a farm called Gwynionydd. Humphrey Lloyd, Bishop of Bangor, was born at Bodyvudda, in this parish, about the year 1600; and Sion and Rhys Cain, both eminent bards, were also natives of this parish.  The average annual expenditure for the support of the poor amounts to £552.  [Taken from A Topographical Dictionary of Wales by Samuel Lewis, 1833)

WR1-William W. Roberts b7/13/1804 Trawsfynydl,Meroneth-shire,Wales-d6/4/1877 Courtland,Columbia,WI (WI Deaths, 1820-1907, P. 0026, Reel 011, Image 1157) -m6/7/1836 Wales  Catherine Williams (4/19/1811 Tfestiniog,Wales, daughter of Robert & Laura Williams of Wales) For nine years they lived in Wales. William worked in the slate quarries. He lost the sight of one eye in an explosion. The other eye became affected and for many years he was blind. In July of 1845, [Catherine's father and her father's brothers and sisters and several others set out with Grandfather William Roberts and Family across the Atlantic. It took them seven weeks to sail across the Atlantic. Some times they would get blown off course. They reached New York on August 26, 1845. Laura Williams (mother of Catherine) was too sick to travel further, so her husband, Robert Williams, and their daughter Jane remained with her while the rest pushed on eager to reach their new homes in Wisconsin. Laura died soon after. Robert and Jane then followed the others to Racine where they spent the winter. In the spring, Robert Williams and children William, Jane,& Ann? Settled in Courtland, Columbian Co., WI, near Cambria. His other children came later it appears. They were among the earliest settlers in Courtland and they soon organized a little church on Welsh Prairie(Welsh Calvinistic Methodist Church, were quite strick and started in Wales with a doctrine of their own, in which Robert Williams was a faithful worker until his death in 1853. This little church became quite a center for musical enterprises. Musicians and speakers of importance met here. (Marge Kukuwich) There were no railroads in those days so the eary settlers were obliged to drive acorss the country over rough roads and Indian trails. Many traveled in covered wagons drawn by oxen driving their cattle with them. It took about eight days to travel from Racine to Portage. At first, they lived on the bluff in Caledonia Co. (History of Columbia Co., WI?) ]

William was called Nian by the grandchildren which meant Grandfather, and Catharine was called Tiad meaning Grandmother. They are Welsh words. 1880 WI, Columbia County Census states that William is 75 years old, and the household consists of Catherine his wife, daughter Gwen, a son Cadwalader, and granddaughter Katie J. Roberts.

1880 US Federal Census:  William Roberts age 75, Home at Caledonia, Columbia, WI, married to Catharine Roberts, Occupation is farmer, Catharine is 69, Gwen E. is 40, Cadwealader is 27d, and Katie J. Roberts is 5.

 

Welsh Calvinistic Methodist Church: Several families from Wales had settled around Racine, WI for a short time and then moved on to the Caledonia area. The families worshiped together and held prayer services in different homes. In the summer of 1848, a log building was erected 1/2 mile west of the present cemetery, where church services were held and also used as a school house. The church society was organized on May 30, 1848. It was known as the Rock Hill Church. (In 1853, Robert Williams died) In 1856 with the increased membership, the log building became too small and the congregation voted to build a church. They had worshiped in this log church for nine years. In the fall of 1856, rough timbers and stones for the basement had been hauled ready for building the church in the spring of 1857. The church was completed in the late summer. The building was plain, of medium height, painted white, and built over a basement of stone. It was Incorporated,as it was a law of the land. Time and labor had been donated by the neighborhood as is gladly done by country folks. The church had two aisles and three rows of seats with several seats on each side of the pulpit. The cemetery was laid out in 1856. For some time in the early years no one had a wagon. They had low log sleds drawn by oxen. One man made a low wagon from the ends of a large stump and he also made the wheels. It was all wood with a rough box and seat drawn by oxen. Grease was scarce in those days and the squeaking could be heard a long way. They attended religous services regularly the best way they could. The church had (Sciat€) Class Meeting regularly. In the summers at 2 o'clock in the afternoon, the children stood together and said their verses of scripture, questioned and catechized on their verses and the older people would speak of their religious experiences. The Communion Service was held once a month and was a blessed, helpful service. There was nearly as large a Sunday School as church service. The teachers taught the fundamentals of religion and how to live it. At the age of 2 1/2 years the small children sat on a bench without a back that was pulled out from under the regular bench for one whole hour, and were taught the Welsh alphabet and small Welsh words, would repeat their verse and put a penny in the collection to be sent each year for the black children of India. There we were taught to love and give to Missions. When Sunday School was over, that bench was pushed under the regular seat. The church had good singing and was a great part of the Welsh Church. With Mrs. Phillips soprano and Thomas Williams bass, often times there was a Hwylor a go to the singing, repeating and repeating the song. On January, 1860 the Welsh Bible Society of Caledonia was organized. It was an Auxilliary of the American Bible Society of New York. The Bible Society furnished Bibles and Testaments for the families of the neighborhood. It gave Bibles and Testaments for use in the Sunday School. The records show that German and Bohemian Bibles were given. The Bible Society did much in placing God's word in every home and to all persons desiring one. In 1860 a blessed revival came to the Caledonian Church. A bigger church was built later and when it closed, money was received from the sale of the church to the Cemetery Association for the care of the cemetery. The remaining money was used for a memorial to the church to commemorate the religious life of the Welsh people of Caledonia, WI. The Gospel of Jesus Christ had been preached to its people since 1848 when the Welsh Calvinistic Methodist Church was organized in the log church building 1/2 mile west of present cemetery. We have much to commemorate in these three churches. Those faithful servants of God, so earnestly telling us of the Way of Life and the Way of Death. The fervent, uplifting prayers of the fathers of the church, praying for the church and their children, and the wonderful singing of the Welsh hymns by the congregation. We thank God for these Welsh churches and the Christian community of yesterday and the bygone years. The committee selected a large gray granite stone and on it placed a history of the Welsh Churches of Caledonia, WI. It was erected in 1938 on the spot of two of the churches that had stood there. About it lies buried its deacons, its ministers, some of its children and some members of each church and congregation.

As the breezes gently blow over their resting place, We think we hear them softly singing together, Spirit with spirit those old hymns of the church As they sang them in the long ago. We said farewell, to the friends so dear, For a short time we must part We shall meet, those loved ones gone And lost, awhile ˜just gone before.'

Hist.) m7/4/1877 Caledonia,Columbia,WI Iva (Ivie) Eulillie (Lilly) Johnson (Margaret Watling's Fam. Hist.)(Daughter of Benajah Johnson and Sophia Rowley) b2/27/1859 Calendonia,,Columbia,WI (Margaret Watling's Fam. Hist.) -d4/1914 at the family home, 616 Hamilton St.,Portage,Columbia,WI (Margaret Watling's Fam. Hist.) Extended illness of heart trouble, etc. (Obit of Iva Roberts) -m7/4/1877 Occupation: Masonery-Brick and Stone, Portage Area. The following notes are taken from the Excelsior Diary for 1873 written by Ivie Eulillie Johnson: Ivie& John were school mates and Ivie made reference to John from time to time in her Excelsior Diary at 14 years of age and when she is 17, she mentions giving him a tract and praying for his salvation. In January of 1873, Ivie suffered with diphtheria. On Easter Sunday of the same year, Ivie went out to feed the hens and found different colored eggs in the nests. She guessed it was her Uncle John Rowley and Eddie Lavigne that had done it. Some times the Johnson family had Sunday School and prayer meetings at their house and some times it was held at Grandma Rowley's or the stone school house as there was no church nearby and Sophia Rowley led these services many times. On occassion, they visited the Scotch Church. They memorized many scripture verses for Sunday School. Some times their family attended camp meeting. Canoe rides was one of their fun times. Ivie some times made currant dumplings for the family at age 14, and also did baking for the family. This same year, there was a barn raising at Benajah Johnson's, Ivie's grandfather. Ivie helped the haymakers at times, and some times the thrashers came to their house and then they would prepare dinner for them, as high as 22 people for dinner, and also as a girl, she helped her Grandma Johnson pick currants and she picked raspberries and then made jelly & preserves. She also helped with milking. Some times she stayed home while her mother was out and kept house. At this age, she started to think about whether she was a christian or not. In July, Ivie suffered with lobelia. Some times their families could hear the wolves at night. In August, Grandma Johnson started suffering at the beginning of August with erysipilas and stayed very sick throughout August and September of which family members took turns of going over and staying and helping with the duties of the home. Ivie loved to ride horse back as a young girl; she would trot and gallop the horse. Her mother did the business end of trying to locate a minister for their area. Ivie made a quilt and cut out aprons and dresses at a young age and basted them, but she went over to Mr. Dockham to have him stitch them. Hops were raised in the area, and Ivie helped pick these hops for money. Spelling Bees were held in school of which Ivie was a regular participant. For Christmas in 1873, Ivie received mittens, cloth, peanuts, candy and a lead pencil. She was sick that day. The last day of the year, Ivie records that she had spent that year badly enough and prays to do better the next year. In a Memoranda she notes: Profane swearing is abominable, vulgar language is disgusting, loud laughter is impolite, slander is devilish, laziness is harmful, inquisitiveness is offensive, tattling is mean, and telling lies is mean. Avoid these vices and aim at usefulness. This is the road in which to be respected. Walk in it. And in another Memoranda: My motto is to do to others as I would that they should do to me. Help me Jesus is my prayer. These things she will do: Serve my Saviour and love him above all things; Pray three times a day; Never be ashamed of my religion; Always speak the truth; Watch carefully the meaning of all I say; Do nothing which I should object to their doing to me; Never do any thing that I can not think the Lord would be pleased; Be a good girl and help my mother; and Study the Bible every day. (Ivie was a quiet but very earnest person about her Christian life according to her daughter Margaret Watling.) In March of 1875, Grandpa Rowley passed away after being sick for a while. Ivie mentions going up on The Turtle Rockand viewing the scenery. John Robers was the last child to leave the Roberts home, which left his brother, Cadwallader, to run the farm for the parents. John wrote church news articles of the local church for The Free Methodist paper in 1900. Note: A testamony article was written by Iva of her personal experience for The Free Methodist issue of October 12, 1887, p7 of how God had changed her life. All her children were at her bedside when she died. (Obit) Bur: Welsh Cem.,Portage,WI (Picture: John & Iva Roberts; Excelsior Diary of Ivie Johnson)

 

 

Free Methodist Church Some time in the middle of Summer, 1875, a church by the name of Free Methodistorganized and dedicated in Portage. The family went and was pleased with the church and within a few months united with them. The congregation had bought the church that was built by the Lutherans of which they used for about 40 years. Thus was the beginning for the Johnsons & Robertses in the Free Methodist Church. (Excelsior Diary for 1873 written by Ivie Eulillie Johnson)

Testimony by Ivie Roberts in the Free Methodist, October 12, 1887 (Part of It) I. E. Roberts, Caledonia, WI, Sept. 30 For a long time I have been in the fog, under condemnation. I was impatient, suspicious, and hard feeling got into my heart toward those I thought did not use me as they ought. I believe hard feelings in any one's heart, no matter how great the cause, will drive the Holy Spirit away quickly and farther than many other sins that are considered very bad. I went to the camp meeting at Marshall but received little conviction, but alone with my little babes in the silence of the night, Jesus came and talked to me, and showed me that in the condition I was in I would be lost. He invited me by his Holy Spirit to cast my every burden upon him, to consecrate all to him. Then came a peacerest. My faith laid hold of God's promises, and I was purified, cleansed, and sanctified. Praise his holy name for victory! I was freed from these inward corruptions on Sept. 4, 1887. He filled my heart and mouth full of his praises. I have had trials since, but praise Jesus for victory! Please pray that I may be true to Jesus and do the work he has given me well, and that I may live worthy of Jesus my Saviour.
