Was seeking out some information on Nancy Ackley who married to John Ross (Ross is my direct lineage).I am finding some information that seems to be quite conflicting
My quandry arises in while investigating I come across 2 dates of death for Nancy...both the 16th day and both 1878 but one shows June and one shows July.
Moreso, I find that a Nancy Ross, d. 16 July 1878 is buried in Fairview Cemetery in Mill City (which is in the Newton area where they are reported to have resided).HOWEVER, she is shown to be the wife of Wm. Ross.Today I went and visited this cemetery to see if this notation is in error.It isn't.Her tombstone reads that she was the wife of Wm Ross, who is a probable brother to the John Ross above. There is also a daughter, Thurzy, who is buried next to her.
I find it highly suspect to find two Nancy Ross' who married to (probably) brothers, resided in the same area and share the same date of death, or died exactly one month apart. I am curious if someone has come across in their research, came to any conclusions therefrom, or anything that might determine that yes, these were 2 separate women.I have yet to find a grave for John Ross, nor a date of death.But it is quite probable that any tombstone for him may be unreadable, broken or missing this point in time.
I would greatly appreciate anything you may have that could shed some light on this quandry.
