Walsh of County Waterford
I've been looking for my Great Grandfather, Michael Walsh, born in County Waterford, Ireland in 1838 or 1839. I have it from my Father (sadly deceased)that Michael's Father was Patrick Walsh from "Waterford" and his wife was Mary
(no maiden name indicated). Michael was married in Newfoundland in 1871 to Johanna Quinn at the RC Basilica in St. John's, Newfoundland. Sadly Michael drowned in the Bay of Gibraltar on February 2, 1885 at the age 0f 46 (or 47). He was bosun on board the ship Spark. The couple had a number of children, including my Grandfather, Patrick Walsh, who were all born in St. John's, Newfoundland, Canada. Any help in finding Michael would be appreciated.
