I think William M. Welch was the father of Thomas Martin Welch who married Amanda Telitha Estes in 1871 in Bollinger Co., MO. Apparently, William's first wife was Syndarilla ____. Do you know the maiden name of Syndarilla, plus when she died and where she is buried? Do you know when Thomas Welch died and where he is buried?
