In Reply to: Joseph Welch of Mississippi and Rusk Co., TX by John Averitt of 847

In 1860, there was a 16 year-old female named Ellen Welch listed in Joseph Welch's household. She, like him, was born in Mississippi. I have guessed that she may be his sister.

She married Wilburn V. Davis in Rusk County on 23 Jan 1867.

Information from her death certificate:

b. 8 Jul 1844 in Mississippi
d. 18 Jan 1937 in Rusk County, Texas

Father: George J.T. Walch
b. Ireland
Mother: Sarah Price
b. Mississippi

Places of birth for Ellen and her parents are consistent with the Censuses of 1880, 1900, 1910, and 1930. I haven't found her on any other Censuses.
