Seeking information about James Walsh and family

+4 votes
Need help finding where my great grandmothers family emigrated too. James Walsh, his wife Mary and his other children I was told emigrated to somewhere in Canada around 1847. Most likely New Foundland but not sure. Cannot find any record of them or descendants. My GG Mary Ellen Walsh was transported to Tasmania at the tender age of 11. Her parents left her behind with an Aunt in Cork, Ireland. She stole money so she could catch a ship to Canada to find them.

If he came around those years, then he might have wound up in the quarantine island of Grosse-Isle, as many other migrants from Ireland did.  Suggest you add the tag Grosse-Isle to your question so those working on that can see this.  Also, do you have his profile created?  Would be good to tag it with your question.

Unfortunately common surname and given name.  I, too, am searching for information about a James Walsh (Walsh-4006) in Atlantic Canada around the same time and mention it only to avoid confusion in case either of us find information to share about the other James Walsh.
