My great great great grandfather Michael Welch was a civil war vet and is listed in John Spencer's books on Navarro County Vets...You have him down as settling in Texas in 1860. He actually settled here in Navarro Co near Dresden in 1844 when Texas was still a republic...came from Greene Co. Missouri with a wagon load of kids. He is buried in an unmarked grave in the old Melton cemetery between Blooming Grove and Dresden.
