Bill, Hi. Well, not exactly who I am looking for, but you never know when odd bits of the puzzle will fall into place.
I don't have a lot on Margaret Roff/Ross yet, although I do have her birthday 17 May, 1817, born near Columbus, Franklin Co., Ohio. She died 10 July, 1881 in an accident with a horse and buggy in Boulder, CO.Her middle name could be Merrit, Skerrit, or just a middle initial S. Her father, who I believe is named James was born in Scotland. Her mother probably came from Ohio, Pennsylvania, or Connecticut. A couple of possible brothers for Margaret are Daniel, born also about 1817 in Ohio, and Charles T., born in 1819 in Connecticut. Charles turns up on the 1850 census looking for gold in El Dorado Co. CA at age 31. Margaret married Thomas Avery Aikins and although I have more on the Aikins family, that's about all I know about the Roff/Ross family and I would love to find more. Thanks so much for posting your message... Cindy
