This Day in Dayton, 17 March

Happy St. Patrick’s Day! According to a 2005 E-Podunk site, major ancestry groups reported by Dayton residents in the last census 15 percent of us are Irish, Scots-Irish, and Scottish. The breakdown of other ancestral groups is recorded as follows: 32 percent German, 8 percent English, and 16 percent other (French, Dutch, Italian, Mexican, Norwegian, Polish, and European). So break out your green and celebrate with your Irish neighbors!
