A Word of Gratitude
The research on the Welsh of Harpers Ferry has had many significant contributors throughout the years; the research compiled on this website would not be nearly as thorough without the guidance and contributions of the following wonderful people and associations.
William Bauman C&O Canal Association
Conducted extensive research on the Welsh and Flanagan families and their relationship with the canal, as well as the Bakerton area limestone industry, authoring an extensive report on his findings.
Gifted the Welsh family a copy of her Flanagan genealogical research, which forms the foundation of our Flanagan files.
William TheriaultWV GeoHistory
Published thorough research on the history of the Bakerton area and many of its prominent families, including the Welsh and Flanagan clans. His research has added detailed insight into the lives of our ancestors.
