My husband's gr-gr-grandfather was HUGH WALSH.  B.abt 1830 In Ireland to James Walsh and Catherine HOAG, also born in Ireland.   Townland and county(s) are unknown.


Hugh immigrated about 1860 and decided to stay in Yonkers, NY.  He was a gardener.  He married ANNE REID, daughter of James Reid and Mary SHANAHAN, possibly of Eglish in County Offaly.   They raised their family of 6 children in Yonkers.    All children were born in Yonkers.


While we have all of the US info for Hugh and Anne Reid Walsh, we know nothing about their original birth families and where they resided.  The referene to Offaly is a new discovery and still being researched.
