Martin was the oldest known child of Patrick and Honora Walsh. The date of death engraved on the stone is believed to be 1855, however a record of death has not been found in Jefferson County.
His three younger brothers (Patrick, James, and Thomas Buchanon) are enumerated in his household along with his mother, his son Michael, two unknown children, and a boarder William Jackson in the 1850 census. He is buried alongside his brother, Thomas Buchanon (Memorial #87015586).
His son, Michael Welsh, married Mary "Mollie" Catherine Howard in Shepherdstown, WV March 3, 1870 and moved to Blair County, PA in September of 1889. The identity of Michael's mother is unknown.
