My scanner is down right now. Here's what the obit says as it appeared in the Southern Patriot:
Also, near the same place, at her residence, and on the day previous, Mrs. Catherine Ross, in the 85th year of age. Mrs. Ross was the wife and widow of Mr. James Ross, a native of Scotland, though he had lived in this district for may years. (ibid.)
The previous obit says:
Died, on Friday, the 27th ult., at his residence in the upper part of this district, Mr John Henson Sr., in the 78th year of his age. The deceased was a farmer, and highly esteemed by all who knew him. (ibid.)
John Henson Sr. was my ggrandmother's uncle. In 1850 her family lived next door to him. In 1856 she married my ggrandfather Oliver Camp Ross. In 1850 he was 16 and living with his parents Philip and Jane Ross. I have seen Philip referred to as J. P. Ross. I am going to send to Greenville for a copy of James Ross' will and hope I can find a connection.
I would appreciate any info you could send me on this couple!
Thanks for responding,
