Hi, I am researching an ancestor of my wifes. He was from Germany and died in the Civil War. He, married Martha F. Bellomy and they had two children John Manuel and Eliza A Walters. The widow, Martha F, remarried and a Walter Welch was appointed guardian for the two minor children. I found a Walter Welch in the 1880 Boyd County Census. We know what happened to Eliza A as she became a founder of our line. However, we know nothing about Emanuel or Marth F and thought that since Walter Welch had been the minor children's guardian that there might be a family connection.
Any information would be appreciated.
