Dennis Rouse and Mary Delany Rouse

Dennis Rouse and Mary Delany Rouse

Posted: 1432776780000
Classification: Query
Surnames: Rouse, Delany

I am researching Dennis Rouse and his wife Mary Delany Rouse. They were from Queens County, Ireland and married in McDonough county on 12 March 1857. They had 3 children-John, Anna and Mollie (Mary). My g grandfather was John, who left IL an settled in Natchez, MS. Anna married John Chapman, and Mollie married John Patrick Burke.

Dennis doesn't appear on any census after 1860, but does appear on a Civil War draft roster from 1863. I am trying to find out a death record for Dennis. Also trying to find birth records for Mary and Dennis and a record of when they arrived in the US.

Any help would be appreciated.
