Sept. 5, 1863: Dr. J.C. Welsh is apparently too early to be listed in George H. Kress’ “A History of the Medical Profession in Southern California” (1910) — either that or the entry on him was lost when the material for the first edition of the book was destroyed in The Times bombing.
However, he does appear as Dr. J.C. Welch in Harris Newmark’s “Sixty Years in Southern California.”
Newmark says Welsh was a South Carolinian and a partner with Dr. H.R. Myles in a drugstore on Main Street. Welsh arrived in Los Angeles in the early 1850s died in August 1869, Newmark says.
