The church of St David’s, in what is now Radnor, was established in 1715 by Welsh immigrants. There are several notable people buried in the graveyard, including General Anthony Wayne, a major figure in the revolutionary war who died in Erie, Pennsylvania and was buried there. His son Isaac, wishing to bury him at his home church, traveled to Erie in 1809 and had the body exhumed and rendered to separate the bones from the flesh. All the bones that would fit in Isaac Wayne’s luggage were brought to St. David’s.
Also, a the grave of a surgeon in attendance at the death of Nelson at the battle of Trafalgar is also located there.
