Re: demoss-kelly Perry Co. ohio
Hi Judith; (Hope you're still out there!)
I apologize for taking a long while to cogitate. I am trying to finish a Masters thesis and working and I'm afraid I don't get to do as much with this as I would like. I spent some time reviewing here tonight and am going to try to ask a few intelligent questions (good luck on that!):
Your line includes Thomas DeMoss and Electa/Electra Spencer (yes?) Who is Thomas' dad?
Your line includes Jonas/Jonah DeMoss and Jane (who I have as Kelly) (yes?) and neither of us are clear on who Jonah's dad is? (yes?) This is the place (so far) that you brick wall?
You asked me about children for Marcus and I must admit you are probably correct on that one too - I have (had) Marcus Lucius (interesting about the Marcus part, tho) b 12 Apr 1856 and no doc. for him.
Could your Flora Louise Burns DeMoss be Flora Louise BURRIS DeMoss? Just asking. That's how I have her but no doc on that either.
I reviewed your advice on Bath Co VA - good advice. I will say tho' that these DeMosses have a way of turning up.
Do you have Electra Spencer's folks as Willis and Nancy Ayers Spencer?
Do you have firm dates on Thomas Chester DeMoss? Can you connect him to a dad? (Jonah?) I had a theory at one time that he was the son of Peter DeMoss and Elizabeth Stewart of Virginia, Ohio and Iowa.
Well that's probably exhausting enough for now - I apologize again - I sometimes take so long to get back to the chase that I need a review session, so forgive me if I am being tedious.
I sure I must be able to be of some assistance somewhere - let me know.
