I don't have much info on my Irish ancestors. Florence O’Neill married Mary (last name unknown). They had a daughter, Margaret O’Neill, born 15 Aug 1824 in Baltimore, Ireland, County Cork. Margaret married Daniel O’Brien in Portland, Cumberland, Maine in 1849. They had 4 children who were born in Maine, Indiana and Kentucky before the family settled in Missouri. I descend from their daughter, Mary Ellen (Nellie) who married Thomas Foley.
Barbara, I was wrong. I spelled Welsh, and should be Welch, like the grape. lol That still may be from Walsh, just different spelling.
I go back to Edmund Welch Sr, wife Ruth A. Annis, living in Wells, Main. Their son EdmundWelch Jr, b 1/31/1753, m Hannah Annis. I have records all the way to me.
There is much debate of who the father of Edmund Sr. is. Many theories are out there, but no proof.
