Hi, I am researching my Walsh folk. Funny thing is I made the jump to Ireland before I found anything of consequence here in the states. My Ggrama was Catherine Agnes Walsh of Boderan Co. Wexford Ire. She was born 1870 to Catherine(Forrestal)& Patrick Walsh. She emmigramted about 1890. She was the only sister to do that. There was family here though. She has a Joseph Walsh as a sponser on my Grampa's Birth certif. The family was in Cleveland and had to be here in Buffalo because Grampa was sent to a cousin when his mum died. Nellie(Sutton) Connors on Prenatt st. Buffalo 1910. Turns out her mum was Bridget(forrestal)Sutton.
That brings me to you and Orleans Cty. There are a group of Forrestals present day in the Medina area. I know its a lonshot but like the NY Lotto says "Hey Ya never know!"
If you have any info that connects a bit E me
