Martha , lm curious if Robert Alonzo Welch was related to James Welch . Robert left home in Newberry South Carolina in 1886 with a fifth grade education, borrowed fifty dollars and headed to Texas to make a fortune.

Robert Alonzo Welch was born 1872 in Newberry S.C

His father, Alexander C. Welch was born 1847 in Newberry S.C

His grandfather Williamson Welch was born 1802 in Iredell County North Carolina.

I havenít found Williamson Welch parents yet .
