I don't think I'm going to be much help. Margaret Ellen's Mack family came from Ireland. I don't know of any connection to Welsh Macks. As for the Meehans in Jermyn/Mayfield, most, if not all of them, are descendants of my great great grandfather Daniel Meehan, and his sons, John, Daniel, Charles, James, Andrew and Patrick, who all came from Ireland and settled in what is now Jermyn between 1865 and 1870.
As for information about the Welsh Community in Scranton, or Lackawanna County, there used to be a "Welsh Home" in the 1600 block of Capouse Avenue in Scranton. This was like a personal care home today. I moved from Scranton about 1969, and don't know if it's still there, at a different location, or even in existence. I guess you could try Directory Assistance to see. I tried but haven't found a web page for it.
Try a "Google" search for Genealogical Research Society of Northeastern Pennsylvania. There is a web page for it, with address, phone number, directions to its facility in Olyphant, etc. There are fees for its services, but the people there may have or be able to lead you to some of the information you're looking for.
