WALSH/WELSH, James

Was Found in a Sitting Position on His  Bed ~ Baptismal Records Make His Age at the Time of His Death 112 years. He Was Very Active and Often Came to Cumberland
Mr James Walsh was found dead Sunday morning at the residence of his son-in-law, Patrick Mullooly, a farmer residing on Great Savage Mountain, one mile northwest of Frostburg.  It is stated that Rev Fr Williams, pastor of St. Patrick church at Mt Savage, has a copy of the baptismal record from the parish of County Roscommon, Ireland, showing that the deceased was born in July 1790, hence he was 112 years of age.  Death evidently came suddenly as Mr. Walsh was in a sitting position on his bed with his arms resting on a chair.  He was born on the river Shannon, County Roscommon, Ireland. He was very active and after coming to Cumberland, having been a great friend of Mr. James Clark, their intimacy having been increased by the fact that Mr Clark’s father and Mr. Walsh came from Ireland together, both having been born in the County Roscommon.  When Mr. Walsh came to this country there was not a railroad south of Baltimore, nor was the Chesapeake & Ohio canal yet  finished at Williamsport.  He remembered well when the “Good Intent” stage line ran between Frederick and Wheeling when  six horse teams and droves of horses, hogs and cattle by the thousands were taken through Cumberland eastward; when there were no iron works, now long since abandoned at Mt.Savage and when all stage conveyances were imported from Russia. He had known the people and town of Frostburg for nearly 75 years. Mr. Walsh was by trade a wagonmaker and until about five years ago delighted to work at the bench.  He averaged a visit to Frostburg once a week if the weather was good.  He was a diligent reader and until several years ago could read without the aid of classes.  Mr. Walsh is survived by the following children: Mrs. Kate Farley, Pittsburg, Pa.: Mrs. Anne Kenney, Meyersdale: Mrs. Bridget Mullooly, Morgantown: Mrs. Maria Broderick. Mt. Savage: Mrs. Sarah Jane Kelley, William Walsh, a heater helper at the Schonthal Iron and Steel plant, Cumberland: Martin Walsh, a farmer at North Branch.  Mr. Walsh also leaves 28 grand children and 20 great grandchildren.  He had no brothers or sisters.  His wife died over 20 years ago at the age of 72. Mr. Walsh was the light of three centuries. He was born about the time of the passage of the act authorizing the formation of Allegany county. He was three years old when his mother died and he remembered it. Speaking of his antecedents he said his “father who lived at 110 years never lost a tooth.” Mr. Walsh lived at Mt. Savage for 52 years, going to his daughter’s after the death of his wife.  The funeral of Mr. Walsh will occur tomorrow morning at 9 o’clock front St. Patrick’s church. Mt. Savage, and interment will be made in the church cemetery

WALSH, John Thomas

"Funeral services for John Thomas Walsh, 73, retired public school teacher, who died early Saturday morning at the Allegany Hospital, where he had been a patient since May 20, were held today at 9 a.m. in St. Patrick's Catholic church, with interment in St. Mary's cemetery, Lonaconing. Mr. Walsh, who taught for many years in the Allegany county schools and was a member of the Centre Street faculty when he retired, resided at the Walton Hotel here in recent years. When he was eighteen months old he lost his right arm at the shoulder during the battle at Bloomington bridge in 1864. He was asleep in his crib when a "pumpkin ball" from a large calibre rifle came through the roof of his home, which was in the line of fire as the Union and Confederate forces battled over the nearby fields. His sister, Mary, less than ten years old, crouched over the crib to protect the baby as bullets tore through the frame dwelling. The "pumpkin ball" struck her, inflicting fatal wounds and mutilated the baby's arm. Despite the loss of his arm, he completed his education and became a teacher in the county schools, serving for many years in the George's Creek region. He was active some years ago in Democratic party affairs in the county. Mr. Walsh is survived by three sons, Edward J., Washington, D.C., John G., Erie, Pa., and Francis Walsh, Piedmont, W. Va.; three daughters, Mrs. Lum Savage and Adele Walsh, Piedmont, and Mrs. J. A. Dexter, Baltimore; two brothers, Edward Walsh, Clarksburg, W.

WALSH, Mrs. Mary Reynolds

"Piedmont and War Times-There, died in Cumberland at the Western Maryland hospital, last Saturday evening, July 16, a lady, Mrs. Mary Reynolds Walsh, resident of Lonaconing, whose residence for a while in Piedmont's vicinity was a very painful one, and whose memory of the surroundings are vivid long years after, even until her death. The family resided here during the years of the Civil War, and if we are not mistaken, the home was on "old" Hampshire Hill. When one of the minor raids of the Confederate was made on us, the "Johnnies" were chased out of town by a skirmishing party of "Yanks" who, having a cannon, made use of it out on Bloomington road from Westernport. A ball from this piece of artillery entered the house of the Walsh's over on Hampshire hill, killing a dear little girl, and taking off the arm of a little boy baby. That boy is now well known in Allegany county, Md., where the family have long resided, he from early manhood engaged in the profession of teaching, at present, and for some years back, being principal of the large public school at Midland."
