Grant Co. Birth lookup

The census data looks like it could be a match. Edward was called Edgar on most all of the information I found here except his marriage certificate. Also, 3 years old at 1870 would be correct by his marriage certificate birth information. Was there any other information listed in the census as to who the spouse of Samuel was, Rachel or Amelia?

Mike,

Not sure if this could be your family or not. Do you know any of Edward's siblings names or what township he was born in?

1870 Census, Muscoda, Grant, WI, Pg. 324, Household 26

Samuel Welsh, 33, Laborer, NY
Rachel, 28, PA
Amelia, 23, IL
Charles, 10, IL
William, 9, IL
Thomas, 6, IL
Edgar, 3, WI

Welsh and Welch were commonly transposed in early documents, so you should always check for both.

I am looking for a birth record on an Edward Sherman Welch born in Grant County, Wisconsin in 1868 to 1870. His tombstone lists his birth as 1870. However, his marriage certificate lists his birth as 1868 in Grant County, Wisconsin. His father, on the marriage certificate, is listed as Samuel Welch. His mother is listed as unknown. Any help in this matter would be appreciated.

Mike,

I re-checked the 1870 census film.

Amelia was actually age 12, born in Illinois. Apparently the transcript I have was in error.

I checked the 1880 census of Muscoda, Grant, WI, but didn't see the Welsh/Welch family.

It has been quite a while since you posted, but I am interested if you located the information on your family. I have some information on the Welch family in Grant County Wisconsin
