Eliza Welsh was born on 23 July 1843 in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada. She was the daughter of James Faulkner and Mary Ann Dunbrack Faulkner, and was the third of 7 children. On 13 March 1861 in American Fork, Utah, she married James Welsh, and together they had 10 children, three of which died shortly after their births. The surviving children are: James Edward, William Faulkner, Mary Newton John, Robert Bernard, Stephen, and Edna Pearl. In 1855, two missionaries from the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints visited the family, and after their conversion to the Church, they set out for Utah on 1 May 1855. They started in Missouri and set out for the West on 15 June 1855. Unfortunately, during the trek, Eliza mother and two brothers passed away due to a cholera outbreak within the company. Eliza was remembered by loved ones for her fortitude in the Gospel, even in the face of trial and hardship. She served as a teacher in the Relief Society for many years, and she was a faithful member of the same until she fell and broke her hip 4 years prior to her death and could no longer attend. She died of old age on 27 February 1927 in American Fork, Utah.
