There were a goodly number of immigrants to America. I am curious if there is any historical data or theories of Druids in America? Has there ever been an acheological evidence found?

I have never heard of this area being called the welsh valley although it makes so much sense!
I think I may start to do a little research and if I find anything I'll let ya know.

Soon, her father died of illness that was contracted on the ship, her mother had to take work as domestic help, the children were given to the Church. Great Grandma ended up on the Orphan Trains at the age of 4 years, she was adopted by a family of Irish farmers in the mid-west and led a very happy life.
She could spot a 4 leaved clover from 20 paces, and she told her children that she came from Cuallann, which is the old name for the place. How does a 4 year old girl remember the Gaelic name of her homeland for so many years? I guess that some things have never ceased to be, only the names have changed.
