Newspaper articles provided by Linda Fluharty:
DEATH OF MARGARET LAVINNA WELSHHANS.
DEATH OF MANUEL WELSHHANS. Is this Emanuel above? Should it read 1813-1893?

The following two names, somewhat recently added, have been removed:
*WELSHAN, Blanche – wife 2 of Burton G. – b 1850; married ca 1880. [Buried at GREENWOOD CEMETERY; never buried here. Confirmed by death certificate.]
*WELSHAN, Burton George – husband of Margaret E. - b Oct 1831 – d 1902. [Buried at GREENWOOD CEMETERY; never buried here.]

*MESSAGE FROM GEORGE RUCH, grruch@verizon.net - June 10, 2006

Could you please tell me who read the Atkinson Cemetery records for Welshan (actually Welshans or Welshhans. Some information needs to be corrected. Some descendents dropped one of the "h"s)

1st) Burton George Welshan, husband of Margaret E. b Oct 1831-d 1902, is actually Bertren Gerome Welshhans, b. 14 Oct 1831 - d. 27 Sep 1915. He is buried in Section F, Lot 22 in the Greenwood Cemetery, Wheeling, along with his 2nd wife Blanche Welshhans (Welshan) b. 4 Sept 1850 - d. 10 Nov 1926. Neither are buried at Atkinson Cemetery. Bertren's 1st wife, Margaret Elizabeth, d. 3 Sept 1879, is buried in the old Atkinson Cemetery as are some of their children who died young.

2nd) Herbert Welshan c/o Burton G & Margaret E. Welshan, b Aug 1 1889 - d Aug 8 1890 was the c/o of Burton & Blanche. Margaret E. died 1879. Bertren & Blanche were married Oct 27, 1880.

I don't know about a couple of the others, but I have information from the Ohio County Court House & Greenwood Cemetery. I am a Welshhans descendent (Bertren Gerome's 2nd wife Blanche)
