The children of William Walsh's family married some of the Cumming family which is my husband's group. He is descended from No. 5 Thomas Walsh b. 15 January 1853 who married Jean Alexandra Cumming . Jean Cumming's father was Gavin Nicholas Cumming who died in Deloraine June 5, 1891.
Thomas Walsh (No. 5) and Jean Alexandra Cumming's daughter
Ethel Jean Walsh b. 29 October 1881 in Deloraine, married Alfred John Shadbolt in West Devonport in 1903. Ethel and Alfred were my husband's grandparents.
I would appreciate anything you can pass on about this Walsh family if they are familiar to you.
