Salem Welsh Cemetery

Genesee Township
Waukesha County Wisconsin Genealogy

Location

This active cemetery is located on the west side of Highway 83 at the junction of Highway G, Section 9 Genesee Township. It is opposite Jerusalem Cemetery.

History

The cemetery was established in 1852. Salem Welsh Calvinistic Methodist Church was established in 1851 after some dissension among members of Jerusalem Church. The church was built in 1853. The congregation was dissolved in 1878 and most of the members went back to Jerusalem Church.

The first Welsh person to die in the area, Ann Roderick in 1842. She was buried on the Thomas Jones "Maesmawr" farm in the Northeast 1/4 of Section 1, Genesee Township. Thomas Jones' son, John, died in 1844 and was also buried on the farm. Both of these burials were later exhumed and reburied in Salem cemetery.

The Jerusalem and Salem Cemeteries, since March 10, 1921, have been under the direction of one cemetery association, first called the Genesee Welsh Cemetery Association. On April 5, 1948, the name was changed to the Wales Cemetery Association.

Records

There are cemetery records 1852-date. There is a chart of the cemetery and records are available for public research by appointment. Mail requests will be answered at no charge.

At the Waukesha County Museum, there are transcriptions of Tombstones 1842-1938.

Photographs

Some photographs of tombstones can be found at the Linking Your Past Photo Gallery. Photos available have been marked with a [P}.

Tramscriptions

This cemetery transcription may actually be for the Jerusalem Church. I am awaiting confirmation from Larry & Linda to find out if these stones were on west side of Hwy 83 or East side.

See also Jerusalem Cemetery.

This is only a partial listing of burials in the cemetery.
