Monday Madness: Who is Sophia Moross ?
On a Rootsweb Site for St. Clair County, Michigan, I ran into this marriage record:
4 July 1861, St. Stephen's Church, Port Huron
Charles Cross, 49, Sandusky, Erie County, Ohio
Sophia Moross, 44, Port Huron
William Leblaw & Victoria Noross, both of Port Huron; L. Kilroy, Catholic
Charles Cross was the Mayor of Sandusky from 1853 to 1856. His first wife Matilda (some records list her name as Patience) died sometime between 1850 and 1860.
In the 1870 Erie County, Ohio Census Record, Charles Cross does not have a spouse listed. To date, I still do not know where Charles Cross and his bride of 1861 lived, and I do not know what happened to Sophia Moross Cross.
If anyone has any clues about Sophia, please let me know! Thanks!
Charles Cross died on November 18, 1889, and he is buried in St. Joseph's Catholic Cemetery in Sandusky, Ohio.
