Other Walshes in New York City
Immigrants went to places where their family, friends, and fellow villagers had gone before them. When they arrived in their new homes they tended to settle in the same areas. As they became more familiar with their environment they began to spread out. For example among the siblings of Joseph Walsh:
There must have been Walshes who preceded the children of John and Fanny to New York City. There would have been people who gave them advice on where to live and where to find a job, perhaps lent them money to get started or paid for their passage to America. Most likely there were siblings of John Walsh or aunts and/or uncles of his who lived in New York City. The problems are

There are no apparent immediate connections to John Walsh of Ballinrobe.
Anthony Walsh born circa 1810 Co. Mayo, Ireland and Sabina Condrey Walsh
Birth: Anthony Walsh born between 1810 and 1820 Co Mayo Ireland parents unknown, town unknown
Marriage: Sabina Condrey in US born circa 1817 Co Mayo
Note: Despite some discrepancies in the dates of birth the name combinations indicate that the following census and bank records relate to the same Anthony and Sabina Walsh.
1860 census Ward 1 NYC: Anthony Walsh, age 48 liquor store, born Ireland, Sabine age 30, born Ireland Julia age 6, born NY, and 4 others, Corn Callahan age 60, Goe. Winer age 21, John Malley, age 21 all day laborers, and Ann Nixon age 24 all born Ireland, except Julia born NY

Bernard Walsh born circa 1832 Ireland
Birth: Bernard Walsh born circa 1832, place and parents unknown.
Married: Johanna Bailey born circa 1836
Emigrant Saving Bank: Not listed.
1870 Cenus: They were listed twice in the 1870 census which probably reflects a very recent move whereby they were enumerated two times. The order of the names is too exact and the ages too close to reflect another couple with the same names and the same named children in the exact same order.
1880 Census 135 Liberty Street Manhattan (eight families in building, see Anthony Walsh above): Bernard, age 48 husband labourer, 6, Ireland, Johanna age 44 wife keeps house, Ireland, Elizabeth age 23, daughter works in box factory, Katie daughter words in paper b, Ellie age 17 daughter paper b factory, Edward age 15 son hosery, Maggie daughter age 12 at home one eye blind, John age 9 son at home, Fanny age 2 daughter, Kids all born NY.

Note: Next to Thomas Wiley age 40 married 14 years, born NY clerk, Elizabeth wife, age 37*, Elizabeth S daughter age 10 and, John J Walsh* brother age 39, -- office banking house
*This is NOT the right age for Elizabeth who was born in 1857 and would have been 54 in 1910. This is the correct age for John born in 1871. What is happening here?
