Searching for information on Nicholas & Joseph W. Welch--believe Nicholas was Joseph's father, but can't prove. Joseph W. b. 1793 in SC. He and Nicholas both owned land in Anderson Co., SC--Nicholas as early as 1797, Joseph in 1815, both had land on 23 mile creek in Anderson Co., SC. Joseph's spouse--Elizabeth??(Maybe Risener?) Both Nicholas & Joseph staked out land in Habersham Co., Geo. in 1823, on same day, entries right together. Joseph is on 1830 census-Habersham Co., with 6 children (4 girls & 2 boys—ages indicate one boy & one girl could be Joseph’s brother & his wife). On 1840 census in Pickens Co., AL with 2 girls & 2 boys. 1850-still in Pickens Co., with Mary E. age 17, Thomas (my gr-grandfather), age 14, Joseph P. Welch (son of Joseph W. & Elizabeth) age 20 & sp Charlotte Jesse Bruner, age 18. Joseph W. is my gr-gr-grandfather, would like to trade info. with anyone that might be tracking this family!! Thanks, Walter
