THIS IS THEIR STORY
A compilation of the history of the Welsh/Walsh of Harpers Ferry, related families, and the forgotten history of the critical industrial hub that helped to build the East Coast.
Our story begins with a thirst for freedom and a chance to break the cycle of anguish and hardship that ruthlessly swept the families of Ireland.
In their eyes, there was only one unnerving solution to the painful British rule which weighed heavily upon the family of Patrick and Honora Walsh. This solution was to leave their beloved homeland behind for a chance at a better life in America.
"Oh, Ireland, how we shall forever long for thee."
