Thomas D. Ross b. about 1864 married M. E. Lineburger in Independence County in 1887. M.E. Lineburger is Mary Ellen Ladd, sometimes called Ellen, sometimes called Mollie.Unsure if Mollie's frist husband (Lineburger) died or if they divorced. At least one child from the Ladd/Ross union, Emmet Roy Ross, b. 1894. Mary Ellen died 1899 and is buried at Wyatt Cemetery in Independence Co. Ark. Son Emmet died in 1932 and is buried at Wyatt Cemetery. Can find no information on Thomas D. Ross. Family oral history has his name Thomas Daniel Ross who left the area after Mary Ellen's death. A family friend who travelled to Texas told the family that he had seen and spoken to Thomas D. Ross somewhere in Texas. If anyone with a Thomas that spent time in Arkansas between 1880-1900 I'd sure appreciate the information.
