Welcome Salisbury was born in Rhode Island. He came to New York where he married Polly. After their children were born, they moved to Michigan.
The story goes that the Salisbury family was originally from England. Grandfather Salisbury returned to England to claim the family inheritance. The family later learned that his ship sank on the way back to America with the inheritance and Grandfather aboard. Was Welcome's father "Grandfather" Salisbury?
