I had no idea there were so many cemeteries in Salem and Port Washington. My search was for Adam Ross and wife Margaret Schug Ross.... Adam born 1854, Margaret 1853 . Married 1874 ....Both were from Clay...Margaret born in Prussia and Adam in Ohio. 1880 Census shows
Adam(26),Margaret (27) Benjamin (5) , Elizabeth (2), Mary (5 months). Mary was my maternal grandmother. I never heard mention of Elizabeth, so she may have died very young. There
was another daughter, Maude Ross,born 1875. She was educated at the Ohio School for the Deaf and Blinded in Columbus. This is probably the reason she isn't listed with the family during the 1880 census. The children were orphaned about 1882 and
raised by the Henry Schug family.
Finding their graves is just a curiosity on my part.
I am also interested in Adam Ross(g grandfather)and his family history, thinking one thing might lead to another.
I have heard that the Centenary Cemetery on the Winding Staircase Rd isn't a inviting place? Is this true?
Do you have the different cemetery books for the area?
I have the buriel places for Mary Ross Thomas & Benjamin Ross(Port Union Cemetery) and Maude Ross in Beach City.
Adam and Margaret Ross are the only ones I'm trying to locate.... Thanks for the list of cemeteries, if one asked for direction in Port Washington,would these cemeteries be known?
Thanks again. Cynthia
