It may be helpful for you to post a query at the Prince William County, Virginia Message Board. That is the last location Rose M Geris is found on the censuses.

The family removed to Iowa in abt 1900 and then on to Virginia. Rose's mother possibly died in Iowa. Per the 1910 Census, Joseph remarried to Amanda (unk) in abt 1905/06.

Thank you for the information. Rose Geris is my wife's maternal grandmother. I have most of the history; however I have not been able to pin down her birthplace. Indeed, her mother died in Nebraska, they moved to VA and her father remarried. Rose moved to Washington to work where she met my wife’s grandfather, and as they say, the rest is history. In 1890, The Geris family was in York NE. That may be where Rose was born - 19 Nov 1891.

I think I should write the Catholic Dioceses to see if they have any records from York. I also have a picture of her parents taken in Friend NE. But no date.

Her mother was Rose Ann Campbell.

My husband's grandmother was Ellen Campbell Sullivan and Ellen was the sister to Rose Campbell who married Joseph Geris. Ellen was also known as Nellie. Three of the Geris children were baptized in St. Joseph's church in Friend Ne. Jane (middle name appears to be Verna) on Feb 25, 1894, Joseph F on May 29, 1896 and James Michael on June 28, 1898. When my husband's father Daniel Sullivan was baptized on July 9, 1899 the sponsors were Mr and Mrs. Joseph Geris. I do have the probate record of both John Campbell and Jane Campbell who were Rose Campbell Geris' parents. The Geris children inherited some from the estate. Will gladly share what I have and would love to see a picture of John and Jane Campbell if you have one.
