In Reply to: Ruby Minerva Ross (Thorne) by Joan Thorne of 335

1900 census Wise Co, TX, pg 105B:

Ross, Albert J., h, b Apr 1848, 52, md 16 yrs, b MO, KY, MO
" Carrie W., w, b Jun 1850, 49, md 16 yrs, 2 ch, 2 lvg, b TX, GA, SC
" John D., s, b Jul 1872, 27, sgle, b TX
" Ruby M., d, b Apr 1885, 15, b TX ************
[Looks like Ruby had a brother named John, not father. And, John would be a half brother, same father, but different mothers.]

Go to Rootswebe's WorldConnect site -- -- I entered Thorne, William, spouse Altman. Someone is working on this line. And, you can follow Ruby's family back with submissions by this same person. I would get in touch with her and find her sources and share what you know.

On Find a Grave site I think someone made an error for date of death for William Quincy Thorne, birth date is correct. would get in touch with that person and give them the information from his death certificate. I don't see a listing for Ruby, you let them know about the informaion on her DC, too.

Happy Hunting (^_^)
