May 1858 - February 24, 1942

Her Ancestry, as it unfolds to me.

This Census page shows Grandma Mary - 19 as a servant in the household of later husband, Grandpa George Welker.

1880 Wetmore Township, McKean Co., PA

I believe Patrick in the 1860 Census Ridgeway, Elk Co. PA - to be maybe a cousin or Patrick mentioned as the uncle in the lease to heirs, mentioned below. X marks a cut/paste line.

Now - the Patrick here with the family may be the same as brother/uncle mentioned above and below- the only thing that concerns me is the age listed in this census- it is 5 yrs. off to the birth date I have for him as abt. 1830.

I believe Jerry in this 1880 Sheffield Census, to be Grandma's brother & his family. I have a copy of a lease dated July 29 , 1885 , Sheffield, Warren Co., PA ,wherein, Grandpa & Grandma Welker & John Sullivan (the first son on this census) are shown to be guardians of the siblings of John. The document states that the children are the only nieces and nephews and heirs at law, of Patrick Sullivan , their uncle , late of Sheffield .

John in next 2 sets - is the son of Jerry & Johanna. 2 children passed away before 1900.

son Thomas J. must have passed away before 1910.
