Thanks as always. Freeman Ross died 18 Oct 1869 in St. Louis. First wife, Elizabeth Kenter Ross died in 1867 so they wouldn't be in the 1870 census. Elizabeth was buried in the City Cemetery....I found that all the city cemetery records were lost. Haven't found where Freeman is buried. Second wife, Francis N. Sigler League was married to a Stephen S. League and had at least one child that she mentions in one of her depositions. I think I read that she was born about 1828 in Tennessee and had a brother David Sigler. Have also sent emails to the Allegan Library and the Allegan City Clerk for a death record for Isabel.
