Catherine Ross

Catherine Ross has always been a mystery to me. She is my great great Aunt. Her mother, Magdeline "Ellen" Florence (Laughlin) Ross, died 31 January 1899, when Catherine was 9 years old from "lagrippe". She had just delivered a baby boy, William, who also died that day. In 1901, Catherine, her father, James,  her 7 brothers and 1 sister moved from Nemaha County, Kansas to Ellis County, Kansas.

On 15 April 1905, her sister, Marie Florence Stanton, aged 22 dies during childbirth. Later on, during that rough year, Catherine dies. I'm guessing her death was after October because her obituary lists her as being 16 and she was born 9 October 1889.

"Catherine Ross, age 16 years, died at her home in Buckeye township Tuesday. Funeral services were held at St. Joseph’s Church."*Ross, James L., Descendants of Thomas Ross & Mary Ann McCormick, Prairie Village, KS, James L. Ross [7724 Pawnee, 66208], 1999.

There was no mention of how she died. My parents found her tombstone in St. Joseph's Cemetery, Hays, Ellis County, Kansas.
