I didn't find them either prior to 1890. But there are some clues in

Edward R. Welch's death record states he was b. 1 Nov 1862 in Covington KY (Kenton
Co). His father is stb Henry Welch but mother's name looks like
"Henanerry", not Henry. Have you searched for her surname with alternate
There is also a death record for Edward's daughter Pearl: Margaret Perl Welch
Fisher, b. Owen Co 24 Jul 1911, d. Gallatin Co 15 Apr 1935. Father Ed Welch, b. Kenton
County; mother Nannie Hill, b. Grant County.
Both Edward and daughter Pearl died in Gallatin County.
Although most census records say Edward's parents were both born KY, the 1900 census
says father b. NY and mother b. IL. Then the 1910 census says Ed's mother was b. NY.
Whether either of his parents was born in NY is by no means certain, but the fact that
it comes up in two census records may be something worth looking at. At least, it would
indicate you shouldn't confine your search for place of birth to only Kentucky.
I also noticed that Edward and Nannie had a grandson Roy Smith, age 7, living with them
in 1900 census Gallatin Co - possibly Gertie's son?
Hope some of this helps. Wonder why it's so hard to find them 1850-1880? Maybe
Nannie was "Nancy Jane", but every instance I found in census and death records
gives her name as "Nannie".

I'm still trying to discover something about my Edward Welsh before 1890
(born abt 1862 - (son of Henry Welch and Mary Henry Welch ). His wife's name
'Nannie' Hill (daughter of Allan Francis Hill and Mary Jane Johns Hill) was a
nickname. Her name was Jane according to birth records of her children, but
even that may have been just her middle name. Gertie is 6 in this 1900 census
and 18 in the 1910 census so her actual birth date could be as early as 1890?
