Classification: Query
Surnames: Ross, Douglas, Hinzman, Corley/Cauley, Hicklin, Smith, Hicks
I am looking for data to determine whether my ggggrandmother Elizabeth "Betsy" Ross was a sister of John Anderson Ross or your John Robert Ross. Elizabeth was born ca 1773, and shows up in the 1820 and 1830 federal census records as head of household. She had six children with William Douglas. All of her children kept the Ross surname. Various anecdotal records list Elizabeth's parents as Robert & Mary Ross. Elizabeth's youngest child was my gggrandfather James Anderson Ross.

Elizabeth's children married into the Hinzman, Corley/Cauley, Hicklin, Smith and Hicks families. Some of them relocated to Lewis and Braxton counties. Some stayed in Bath Co. and still own land on the Cowpasture River.

Mary Ross's 1858 death certificate from Harrison Co. indicates that she was born in Bath Co. in 1791, and that her parents were Robert & Mary. Could she have been another sibling?
