Hi there, I’m Nicole and I’m researching my 4th great grandfather, George Welch. I’d like to find his parents. My mother, Diana, and I are professional genealogists. Read about us here: About Family Locket Genealogists.
Who were the parents of George Welch? George was born about 1802 in South Carolina and probably died between 1850-1860. He was the husband of Lucindrilla Keaton, and they resided in Anderson County, South Carolina in 1830 and 1840, and in Pickens County, Alabama in 1850.
Descendants of George Welch
Diana and Nicole are descendants of George Welch through his daughter Malissa Welch.
So far, we have access to the AncestryDNA test results of seven of George Welch’s descendants. To achieve the best coverage of his genome and a higher likelihood of finding DNA matches relevant to his parents’ families, more descendants of George Welch are needed, especially those who descend through different children. One of the test takers is also at Family Tree DNA (FTDNA), MyHeritage, and GEDmatch. Another descendant of George Welch is also at FTDNA. So far, the number of descendants who have tested through the following children of George Welch are:
- Margaret Welch (0)
- John Welch (0)
- William Riley Welch (0)
- James Lawrence Welch (2)
- Susan Welch (0)
- David Welch (2)
- Malissa Welch (3)
- Lucinda Welch (0)
- George W. Welch (0)
