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?
