My gggrand father Thomas was from Wexford, he was born in 1799. I will ask my mother again, she is 91, last week we were talking about the Walsh family. I think George past away a few years ago, and his wife Rose lives in the building where my mother lives. I hope I'm getting the story straight. I still have cousins up in Newfie on my dads sideand it got confusing with first names, all the same first names in different families was common.
