I'm looking for information on James Welsh/Welsch/Walsh who was born in Ireland in 1763 a died in Bergen, NJ in1807.  He was buried at the Old Bergen Church.  He married Hannah Brown. 

According to family folklore, James was an ophaned stowaway who came to the United States when he was 12 or 13. 

Any information would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks in advance!
