Robert, it seems like I've run across this name, meaning the Alonzo in the Welch / Welsh name. Let me go check and see if I can find anything. I have a tree on ancestry where I put my FTDNA and ancestry matches, and I have the Eastern Band Cherokee, to the best of my ability so far.
There are a lot of them, it's confusing, and in no way do I have all of them.
Also the Welch married Berryhill and Posey who were enrolled Creek.
A lot of Welch / Welsh came to Texas.

When my Welch/Welsh ancestor came to Texas he went by the name of Newcomb. Even I had an Uncle named Alonzo Newcomb!

I'll see if I can find anything and come back and post!
