  • Notes 
    • This family immigrated to Canada through Northern NY State (possibly Utica, New York) by 1843. They appear to have been travelling with John Walsh's (brother's) family, the family of Patrick Walsh. On the "1844 Census of the Catholic Population of the Mission of Kingston" (see FHL Film #1,298,768), Patrick Walsh, laborer, his wife, and 3 children (2 boys under seven, 1 girl under seven-presumably James Walsh born about 1840, Patrick Walsh born about 1842, and Bridget Walsh born about 1844) appear on p. 5, living on Bagot Street. John Walsh, laborer, with wife and one child (a boy under seven-presumably James born 1843) are also living on Bagot Street and are enumerated on consecutive lines of the census.
