I'm hoping to locate the parents and siblings of Elisha ROSS who resided in Brown County at least in the 1820s and early 1830s.

He m. Cassandra/der FIGGINS 1819 Bracken County, KY.

They had at least the following children (all b. Brown County?):

Oliver Perry 1823 (m. Eleanor ?)
Editha Jane 1826 (m. 1. Jacob DAWSON; 2. Henry PICKERING)
Minerva 1830 (m. Moses Hampton HATHAWAY)
Marshall 1832 (m. Clarissa GAYLORD)
Hartford 1834 (m. Margaret PENNEY)

An 1830 appears to have two children other than those noted above.

Elisha's 1834 Brown County will names his wife, Cassander.

He may have had a brother Thomas, as there is an 1839 Brown County will for Thomas ROSS that leaves "Elisha's heirs" one dollar each.

I have marriages for all children and can account for the deaths/burials of all but Elisha and Editha.

Any information would be most greatly appreciated.
