  1. Hello, I ran across your web site and I just love it, very nice.
    My name is Eveline Tiefenbach b. Walsh, live in Germany, I am the daughter of James E. Walsh jr. born in Caro, ILL., his father was from Powder Mill, Kentucky, for days now I have been working on my family tree and have found many relatives in Hart County, Kentucky. my ggggrandfather was William O. Walsh *1820, +1893 married to America Watkins *abt. 1821, I am trying to find William father, on Ancestry.com, I have found many trees saying that Robert Walsh/Welsh married to Anna Mayberry/Maybry are the parents, but nothing has been found to confirm this. All I know of is that his father was from Wales and mother South Caroline. he had 4 boys, Malen, Cornelius, Adger and William, I also have read that there might be a daughter Catherine, they were all born in Tennessee, but again, don’t know where. The sons show all up in Hart County, Kentucky, I was not able to find any death records to confirm Robert as father.
    Thank you for taking the time
    Any help is appreciated
    Eveline Tiefenbach-Walsh
