I found your genforum on Martin Walsh. I am researching the Walsh families in Ottawa Co. Your 1854 time frame is the same time they lived. I have a Thomas Walsh b-1815 d-1894 Ottawa co. He had Married a Mary Golden. I also have a Hannah Walsh b-1824 d-1884 that Married Charles Gibbs in Ottawa Co. Both families had brothers mentioned. My GGrandmother was a Julia Walsh. please E-mail me and we can see if there are any Connections. My GGrandfather's children and first wife are buried in springlake.
