Hello Everyone!

I just found this site yesterday as I have started a search for my Walsh ancestry. My father's side of the family is part of the Gibbons crowd. Grandfather Patrick Gibbons came to Boston. Married Margaret Frances Hearn and had 10 children. They were in the St. Vincent's area. A few of the cousins have visited our homeland.

My mother's mother was Elizabeth Anna Walsh. Her mother was Cecilia Downy and her dad was John Walsh. They were from Open Hall. John Walsh's parents were Patrick Walsh and Jane Philpot who is listedas being from Indian Arm. This is as far as I have gotten. Nothing yet for the Downey side. Lots to research. My grandmother was baptized at Sts. Peter and Paul in King's cove.

My husband, children and I are flying up tomorrow. SOOOO excited. Visiting the northern islands, bonavista area, and St. Johns were many of my Gibbons cousins are living. My children love NL!

Thank you all. So happy to be a part of this group!
