General Thomas Welsh Family Papers
Description
Autobiography of Thomas Welsh that was probably written in his late teens. This history details Thomas Welsh's work and schooling from age 8 through about age 16. Several people are mentioned, including an unnamed uncle. It appears to be the start of a longer document, except that the back of the page is an unrelated document. This is the first page of a 24 page package, apparently written variously in his late teens/early twenties, and subsequently bound together, probably by Thomas Welsh himself.

Condition Notes
Reasonably good condition, with slight discoloration and some edge deterioration. Judging by the binding, this is page 4 of the packet. The first 2 pages are missing, and p. 3 is TW-A-XX-01(a), on the backside of this. The rest of the pages are bound upside down (relative to the first 4 pages), including TW-A-XX-01(d) and TW-A-XX-01(e), which are part of the same folio sheet as TW-A-XX-01(a) and TW-A-XX-01.
