1868-- The first Christian Church Disciples of Christ

So as my mom and I were leaving the town we had to follow detours to get out and around the festival.... as we were driving I spotted an OLD cemetary and she pulled over for us to look around.  None of the tomb stones were dated later than 1864 or so and they were all very, very old.  All the stones were interesting to read... some were from people who lived to be 83 where as another was for a 2 year old... and then there was one that described the death "In Memory: Thomas Richards, a native of Wales who was Drowned on the 30th day of June A.D. 1841 Aged 25"... it made me wonder how he drowned... did he oops fall off a bridge or did some one drown him because they had it out for him?  Hmmm...? 

The cemetary was for the Old Welsh Church in 1804 and the church still stands... though it's not a church now which explained what my mom and I were pondering as we were walking through the stones... as we looked back it looked as though the stones were in peoples back yards... I guess that's what you get for buying a house that used to be a church.  The one house is now an accounting Office... and the drive way I believe was the old road to the town as it is a stone drive way and the house front faces the drive way and not the actual road...
