I am not researching the Oss line per se, but encountered this tidbit and thought I would post it to benefit anyone who may be interested.
Minnie Oss married Ambrose McKenzie.Elmer McKenzie, one of their children, married someone in my indirect line, Georgina G. Houston.The source follows, however I am interested in any information that may be available on any descendants of the McKenzie/Houston union.
By the way, Minnie (d. 1957) & Elmer (d. 1928) are buried in Forestdale Cemetery, Holyoke, MA, Section C-D.On their stone are also the following names, presumbably their children?
1893 - 1912
1901 - 1920
