I am looking for information on Edward Welch and his family in Gallatin.
I know he died in Warsaw, Gallatin County. His Death Certificate and family information tell two different stories.
According to his death certificate he was born 11/1/1862 in Covington, Kenton
County, KY......and died 11/12/1942 in Warsaw, Gallatin County, KY. On the
death certificate it also list his parents as Henry Welch and Mary Henauerry
or Hewauerry (may have been changed to Henry), and it gives Ky as the
birthplace of both.
I cannot find any birth certificate for him in Kenton County and someone
from the Library there says they can't find any Edward Welch born there at
that time. We also cannot find any sign of his parents.
I found Edward listed in the Owen County, KY census for 1900 and 1910.
Here's the information from that......
1900 Poplar Grove Pct. Owen Co., KY
Edward Welsh Nov. 1862 37 KY NY IL
Nannie June 1870 30 KY KY KY
Birtie or Girtie June 1893 KY KY KY
Eddie Welch 1910
Enumeration District: 0084 Color: W
Age: 44 Birth Place: Kentucky
Relatives: Wife Nannie 42, Kentucky
Daughter Gertie 18, Kentucky
Son Johnie 07, Kentucky
Son Eddie 05, Kentucky
Daughter Lillian NR, Kentucky
His last daughter Pearlie, was born in 1911 in Owen County, KY.
According to the information above in the 1900 census Edward's father was
born in New York and his mother was born in Illinois. However, I talked to
his Granddaughter in law and she said that according to her mother in law (Edward's daughter), Edward was an orphan, from a Catholic orphanage and that he had a brother and a sister and that they were from
Ireland. At some point they were separated and never saw each other again.
She didn't know if they were separated in Ireland or here. She also isn't clear on at what point their parents died. She thinks they came to America as orphans, handled by the Catholic Church.
If anyone has any information on this, please contact me.
