There is a small college not far from here that teaches Welsh and has recruited Welsh football players to represent the school. I am told they win
their league every year. There are a good number of Welsh descendants that live in that area going back to 1830 and before.
There is a story that floats around about a Welshman captured by the local Indians back in the day. He was praying in Welsh and an "Indian"
overheard him and conversed with him in Welsh.
I found a drawing of a Welsh dragon that was made of an image carved on a large stone face in Indiana. The carving itself was rather large. it was
clearly a Welsh dragon although the article written about it never made the connection. The carving was destroyed as the rock face was destroyed to
make way for a highway. Stories of Welsh over here before Columbus abound.
There are petroglyphs in this state that are interesting. There is one with what is clearly a man holding a "carnyx". Looks like something off the
gundestrup cauldron. I don't know if the British tribes used the carnyx but its a carnyx to be sure. There is also a stone, large flat outlay known
as the "Leo Petroglyph" that clearly displays the use of the Proto-Sinaitic (which is close to Egyptian, Egyptian Hyro symbols and Ogam all in one.
Could be a freekin Rosetta stone of sorts but its in north america so know one would consider that idea....even though there it is. I listened to a
lecture at a seminar on the stone. Man said it represented a mixed crew of metal prospectors.
I will post some pics. If you want to look into it yourself print out a page of the Proto-sinaitic alphabet and compare it to the Leo. Very
Here is a combo image employing both Ogam and the Sinaitic in one body. The "wings" are in Ogam and the dead giveaway is the "a" vowel" there by
itself in the body. The head and the hands are in the Sinaitic, with the Ogam in what is called the "rebus" form.
Here is more rebus Ogam and rebus Proto-Sinaitic combo.
More from Leo.
You can look online at the Leo Petroglyph. Some of the better Proto-Sinaitic is not show in any of the pictures you can find. I have been there myself
and have gone over it all. There is actually a sentence of a few words written in the Proto that is very close to a common supplication found in
copper mines in the Sinai area.
