John Demoss b. 1842 IL m. Nancy Cantwell b. 1857 MO

John Demoss b. abt. 1842 in Fulton Co IL was the son of Peter Demoss. John's family moved to Schuyler County IL where he grew up. John married Nancy Cantwell b. 1857 in MO or KS in about 1874, although I can find no marriage record for them in either IL or MO. They are shown in the 1880 Linn Co MO census with one son Dwight, 2 years old.

I have since learned from descendants that John died in a blizzard in Missouri. His widow Nancy remarried Thomas Mathews in October 1893, so John's death was prior to 1893. That's as close as I can get it. They had 4 children together before his death: Dwight, Roy, Nellie and Harry Smith. Nancy had one daughter with Thomas Mathews named Myrtle.

Would like any other information anyone has on this family. Pat
