My great grandmother, Barbara Florence Sisson (b. 04 FEB 1846 in Pike Co. Missouri ; d. 03 NOV 1915 in Stockton, Ca ; buried in Modesto, Ca.) Married an unknown Ross, my great grandfather. We believe they were married in Pike Co., Missouri. They had one child, my maternal grandmother, Violet Newell Ross (b. 17 FEB 1890 in Hanford, Kings, Ca.; d. 10 JAN 1958 in Modesto, Ca.)
Barbara was the daughter of John Sisson (25 JAN 1794 Viginia - 21 SEPT 1845 Ashley, Pike, Missouri) and Mary S. Dismukes (23 DEC 1806 Kentucky - 17 MAY 1877 Pike, Missouri). I am looking for any information about my great grandfather Ross and his family. I believe it is most likely the Ross family is from Pike Co., Missouri based on my research, but I have no information about them at all. The only thing I do know about Grandfather Ross is he frequently traveled and he often traveled with Samuel Clemens (Mark Twain). I believe he died in Hanford, Ca. c. 1895 when he was approximately 55 years of age. Any information about my missing family would be greatly appreciated (both Sison and Ross). This also includes any living Ross or Sisson relatives I might have. Thank You.
