Trying to find a birth date for Elizabeth Betsey Welch. The only person who looks like a possiblity is Elizabeth Leach Welch, b. 28 May 1775, and baptized in a church in Windham, Cumberland, Maine. The father's name is not listed. The Mother is Catherine Welch. Is this an accidental omission, or is Elizabeth's mother likely yo be a widow or unmarried?

N.B. My Elizabeth Welch married Abraham Winslow on 12 Feb 1789 in Freeport. He died 6 Feb 1806; she died in Aug 1840.

An entry in Early Families of Raymond, Maine suggests that Catherine Welch was the wife of John Welch of Cape Elizabeth, who was killed in the Revolutionary War in 1782. Katherine (Jordan) Welch married second, 24 June 1793 in Windham, Thomas Crisp.
