There is a Thomas Welden in a 1830 census in the town of Otsego. I was wondering if anyone has anymore information about him and his family. My great-great-great grandfather's, Joshua Cary, mother may have been a Minnie Welden. I can't find Joshua in any census' before 1840 or his parents John and Minnie Cary. There are quite a few Welden's in the area. This Thomas Welden has two males 20-29 in his household in 1830. Joshua would have been 21-23 years of age in 1830. His first child was born in 1831. So he may have gotten married after the 1830 census was taken because I can't find him and his wife Lucy or his parents in 1830. So, I'm wondering if he's living with one of his mother's relatives and what happened to his parents.If anyone has anything to tell me, I would greatly appreciate it.
