My Gr-gr Uncle Orrickenner Keenan Welty was raised by Alonzo Weller (mother was Martha Post) in Amhurst and then married and moved to Tomahawk. I understand he was a pioneer of this area. Does anyone know ANYTHING about this man? He was prominent in the Tomahawk area in from 1860 through 1890's as I understand it. where can I find newsclips on this man for those years?
thanks for any input...wendy

You may want to check with our local library as they have newspapers on microfilm.

hi all.. i am new to this site. i spent my first few years in tomahawk. and a few vacations as well. tomahawk is a special place to me. tomahawk is where my lineage runs through. alex robarge is my great great grandfather (married to levina bouchard) he was one of the original settlers to tomahawk. i remember the great north woods and the friendly people. hopefully,i can gather some money together for another trip. my wife has never been up that way, so when i go i will want to have it planed perfect. well thats all for now just like to say hi again... aaron (aaronallstar@yahoo.com)

Check out this link to the Tomahawk Pioneer Society. There is a Welty listed that has ties to O K Welty.

Robert Welty + Orrick Welty( O.K. Welty, SR.)Ancestor Names: Turner, Kapplin.
