Irene, I was just wondering what your source is for the marriage date for Loucinda and Joshua. I did not find it in the Surry County Marriage Records.
Nina, thank you for posting the information you have. Simon Gross III is my ancestor. I have collected information about his descendants and I did not have anything on Loucinda. Ancestry indicates that Loucinda and Joshua were in Kansas Territory in 1865. The middle and younger children are the same as those in the 1850 census. Ancestry and Find A Grave also indicate that a Joshua W. Sheek with the same birthdate you have is buried in Oregon.
