I am wondering if you know of a man by the name of Francis Ross who married a Susannah Decou. They were both from Norfolk Ontario and later moved to Iowa.

I have a website if you would like to check the dates for me.

Let me know if you come up with anything. Love to hear from people.

The name William Ross caught my eye - I am also researching the Ross family.
Your great grandfather may be my great grandfather's brother.

My great grandfather was Richard Ross who was from Wales He was one of 16 children, who one of the brothers is listed as Will. Their parents are John and Sarah Davis Ross.

THis is all I know.
Please let me know if this is a connection?!

Hi Leanne,
I have a Francis Ross in my tree, married to Susannah Decou. They had a daughter Sarah who is also in my family. Francis was 'born at sea' in 1819 and died in Rock Island, IL. I would love additional information if this is the same Francis Ross you have in your tree. Thanks, Eileen

I would appreciate any information that you have on Francis A. Ross and Susannah Decow or Decou I have a family bible with the list of childrens names and births and Susannah's last name was spelled Decow so I don't know which spelling is right but I don't really have any other info on them but births and deaths. So any info you can give me would be helpful.

I have more information concerning your Reeves - Adams connection. Elizabeth Sophia Reeves Adams was a daughter of Joseph and Sophia (Woodward) Reeves. I am also a descendant of the Woodward family of St. Williams.

Reeves, Elizabeth Sophia (daughter of Joseph and Sophia (Woodward) Reeves), born at Broadtown, Wiltshire Co., England on 29 Aug 1837, baptized at the Primitive Methodist Church, Brinkworth, Wiltshire. She married at Vittoria on 12 Jan 1862,2 Frederick Adams (son of George and Elizabeth Adams), born at Chatham, Ontario on 29 Oct 1840.

Elizabeth and Frederick Adams were in the 1871 Census of Charlotteville Township then found in the 1880 Census of Greenbush, Alcona Co., Michigan.

They had an infant buried in Newkirk Cemetery: Elizabeth Sophia Adams, born on 29 Mar 1869, died on 18 Apr 1869. She was buried in Newkirk Cemetery, St. Williams, Walsingham Twp.

Happy Hunting,

Robert Mutrie
