I am researching this Ross line. John Nelson's grt.grt.grandson was my uncle. Uncle Bob's grandfather was Wirt Ross, son of David Johnson Ross. I have found much info on USGENWEB - KY Carter Co. site. They have a whole John Nelson Ross file. I am trying to figure out John Nelson's parents. I know his mother's name was Elizabeth and she married a man named Joshua Vanlandingham when John was about 10. A man named William Denton also signed John's marriage bond and there is spectulation that he was Elizabeth's father. She is listed as William Denton's child on Rootsweb. Her birthdate is 1803 which would mean she was only 15 when John was born. Can anyone verify any of this?
abor. Wirt was born in Carter Co. but Don't know if they were married there or in Kokomo,IN where they eventually lived. Would appreciate anything you could help me with.
