I am researching my family genealogy and would like to hear from anyone who has information on the Tash family.

I am doing Tash research too. At this point I am trying to tie in how the Tash family arrived in the U.S. Let me know what Tash info you are looking for at this time. This is a message I just sent out elsewhere looking for early, early info.
It is wonderful to find someone else interested in the Tash name too!
Cindy McIntire Johnson (my maternal grandmother was Bessie Adelia Tash b. Dec. 1885, dau. of George W. Tash, son of James & Ruth Lombard Tash.
I believe Tash was originally a "MacIntosh/McIntosh/MackIntosh" who arrived
in Canada from/near Belfast, Northern Ireland.
Before I started genealogy I remember stories from the family that this TASH young man was shanghaied/conscripted in 'Ireland' along with his
buddy off the street. They were put on a ship. As they neared the shore of Canada, they overheard people talking of how the prisoners would be made
servants. The two young men jumped ship, separated for safety purposes, and
our young man narrowly made his way to the U.S. border and across. He changed his name to (obviously) avoid detection.
The first notes I find of the TASH name is in the towns of Durham (New) and Dover in the State of New Hampshire stating:
"Col. Thomas Tash, born 5 July, 1722, was of a family that came from near Belfast, Ireland, according to tradition. The original name was McIntash. His father was Jacob Tash, who married (2) Patience, daughter of James and Mary (Smith) Thomas in 1727."
[pp. 143-4, Stackpole, Everett Schermerhorn, 'History of the town of Durham,
New Hampshire (Oyster River Plantation): with genealogical notes'
Durham, N.H.:Published by vote of the town, 1913, 952 pgs.]
THIRDLY, a town history in Chester, Maine, U.S. had a paragraph stating, "Rosetta Tash brought the dishes to Chester that her father and mother
brought from Ireland."
This is a later generation but from the same Tash line. So that is another reference connecting them to Ireland.

Tash or TEsh? What about a Mel E. Tesh (with an "E")? Married to Lucille Perry, dtr. of Ed Perry (9/1885 to 8/1973) son of Charles Perry & Effie C. Henderson, dtr. of Edward Nicholas Henderson...Aroostook Co. Maine & New Brunswick.
I think that possibly the Tesh family may have been from the state of Washington. If this fits, I have more info.
