Source History of Roane Co., WV. Welch This name occurs in county boundary lines, Welch's Mill on Elk Fork of Mill Creek being the second object: "To the thirteenth mile stone on the Spencer and Ripley turnpike: thence to Welch's Mill." We have no information concerning the family except that he, John Welch, with his wife, who was Elizabeth Arnold, settled there about the year of 1845, with one son, Isaiah, and two daughters, one of whom married Major Henry Stump, built the water grist mill there, of the then usual type of which there were so many everywhere in western Virginia, a dam across the stream, of logs, skillfully notched together with dovetailed anchors of heavy logs. about five feet high, all laid together in such a way that the weight of head water came on long logs, dovetailed the anchors of the dam pressing its parts more firmly on each other. Here John Welch and his wife raised at least one child to maturity, that being Isaiah Welch, who was a prominent young man of that part of the county about the close of the "Civil War."
