John Isaac Ross

January 15th, 2017 |
52 Ancestors in 52 weeks. This week I have chosen John Isaac ROSS, my husband’s 3rd great-grandfather.
 
1. He was born to John Ross in England about March 1822 March. He is seen listed as Isaac Ross as well as John Ross.
 
2. He immigrated from Canada to Michigan between 1874-1880. It’s a best guess as his youngest child is 6 years old and was born in Canada.
 
3. He appeared as “Isaack Ross” on the census on 1880 June 7 in West Bay City, Bay, Michigan. He is a 47 year old saw mill worker.
 
4. He appeared as “Isaac Ross” on the census on 1884 June 11 in Bay City, Bay, Michigan. The family resides on 99 Sanbuel Street, and they have been in the state for the last 7 years. He is 60 years old.
 
5. He appeared on the census on 1900 June 1 in Fraser, Linwood, Bay, Michigan,. He is listed as 60 years old (though he is actually 78 years old) and he is married, but his wife is not listed with them. He lives with his daughter Maria LAPAN and her family and lists that he and his father were born in England and his mother was born in Scotland. He cannot read or write.
 
6. He has conflicting death information. Per the cemetery he died 1902 August 8. John Ross Died 8-8-1902, buried 8-10-1902, Born in England, Age at death 85, Priest-Fr. Langlois, Linwood Cemetery
 
7. Per his death certificate he died of old age & a perineal abscess on 1902 September 1 in Kawkawlin, Bay, Michigan,. Death occured at 11:30 in the morning when he was 80 years. He was married and worked as a farmer his whole life, and he married at the age of 21 years and is the father of 12 children, 9 of them still living. He was born in England and his father’s name is given as John Ross, and his mother is “Unknown.” The informant is Isaac Ross.
