Hey there! I am looking for help with my Welch ancestor(s). James (Mike) b. 1871, Anthony (Tony) b. 1872 and Anna Mae (Annie) Welch b. 1875. They were all said to be born in and around Louisville, KY. I found all three on the 1880 Census living in the Louisville House of Refuge/Industrial Reform. I am a descendant of Anthony's line.

Anthony went on to marry Minnie Arnett and had 5 children and stayed in Louisville. James (Mike) married Maude Marsh and had 2 children and stayed in Louisville. Anna Mae married Fred DeCardy, had no children and moved to Chicago.

I can find some info from 1880 and onwards. But cannot find their parents, info about their life or birth before 1880. Or info why they were out into the House of Refuge.

Anthony filled out on his Social Security application that his parents were Michael and Anna Welch. I can find no records for them in or around Kentucky.

Any help is much appreciated!
