Not sure if the Closs family in my genealogy are related to yours, but here goes.If they happen to match up somewhere, let me know and we can share info.
My Great-Great-Great-Grandfather is Abraham Closs, b. 15 Apr 1810 in Herkimer, NY.I don't know who his parents are, but according to the 1880 US census, they were from Ireland.(Of course, we all know how inaccurate many of the census records are)
In 1840, he married Sarah Putman, b. 1814 in New York.Again, I don't know who her parents are.
They had 7 children, 4 girls, 4 boys.The oldest is my G-G-Grandmother.
If you have any info on this line, or if they connect to your line, et me know!
