from the original which he wrote himself in the year 1901:
"Daniel Richards was born in Monmouthshire, South Wales in the year 1824.
While he was young his parents moved to Gelbygare Parish.
Lived there several years near the Old Parish of Gelbygare, Glamorganshire.
From there his parents emigrated to America in April 1838. Landed in N.Y. May 20,
then to Philadelphia, then up to Sehylkill canal towards the Pennsylvania coal mines.
Was there nearly a year, then to Pittsburg for a short time in the fall of 1839.
From there to Ohio where he has resided ever since. Got married in the summer of 1849.
My wife died five years afterwards, leaving me with two sons to care for. In 1862
I got married again and are living together yet but are both having poor health at present.
Raised a large family into manhood."
Welsh inscription on headstone:
Dau bererin sy-n cydorphwys fu-n cyd-deithio flwydoi maith.
Yn eu lletty glyd a chymhwys yma yn y ddaer laith.
Yman dawel cydorweddawt nes el heibio cesau r llawr.
Ynar ddau a gydcyfodant foreur adgyfordiad mawr.
