  • Notes 
    • Ella and Perley Walch had no children. They lived in Cranston, Rhode Island, Revere, Massachusetts, and in Oklahoma and Texas at some time during their lives. I found a death record for Ella Walch in Boston which says she was never married, born in Ireland, and her occupation was housework, all of which are incorrect, but the dates indicate this is Aunt Ella. Ella was an educated woman who had held professional positions during her life.
