Beginning March 2nd, 2020 the Mailing Lists functionality on RootsWeb will be discontinued. Users will no longer be able to send outgoing emails or accept incoming emails. Additionally, administration tools will no longer be available to list administrators and mailing lists will be put into an archival state.
Administrators may save the emails in their list prior to March 2nd. After that, mailing list archives will remain available and searchable on RootsWeb
I am thinking of adopting this Iowa Mailing list along with several
other Iowa county lists and am wondering if there is someone already
taking care of it un-officially. If there is, then I will pass this one
I am searching for information on Alexander Bailey Ross, a grocer, who was
born in Nova Scotia ca. 1843 and was living in Cherokee County by 1875. His
wife was named Isabella Hill Innaterson (?) and they had 3 (or possibly 4)
known children, all born in Cherokee Co: Jeanette (Jenny) b. 1875-76; Clara,
b. 1879-80; Cassie Alverna, b. 25 July 1881; and Katie, b. ca. 1881/82,
although possibly Cassie and Katie were the same child. Alexander also had a
younger brother, Kenneth Ross, b. ca. 1852 in Nova Scotia, who was living
with the family in 1880 and working as a clerk. The 1880 census shows the
family lived on Willow St, Cherokee Twnship, Cherokee, Iowa.
I am trying to find out if Alexander and Kenneth were related to my great
grandfather, William Ross, who in 1880 was living in Marcus. William was b.
19 Mar 1848, also in Nova Scotia, and he too was a grocer.
Does anyone have any information on Alexander or Kenneth?
