Genealogy of the descendants of John Nelson Ross, and related Families Prologue John Nelson Ross was born in Bath, or possibly Fleming Co., Ky. in 1818. Family tradition had him linked to a Vanlandingham family in some way. A few years ago, I discovered that when John got married in 1839, in Bath Co., a Vanlandingham couple signed his marriage bond documents. The signatures are not clear, but one of them was Elizabeth Vanlandingham, and the other looks like Jas.? Vanlandingham. The bond is also signed by a William Denton. On the marriage bond there is a statement in which the Vanlandinghams write that they give permission to "my son, John Nelson Ross to marry". There is a recorded marriage bond between Joshua Vanlandingham and Elizabeth Ross dated Feb. 11, 1829. The marriage of Joshua and Elizabeth was the second for both. According to the book "The Vanlandingham Genealogy, Vol. II" by Leon Vanlandingham, Joshua probably had 2 children with his first wife (whose name is unknown), named Alfred and Madison. Joshua’s wife died, and he married a "Mrs. Ross". According to the book, Joshua and Elizabeth then had 4 more children: Valentine, Malinda, Susannah and Bluford. In 1845 John Nelson Ross and Nancy moved from Bath to Carter County. On the 1850 Carter Co., Ky. census, there is a family living next to them: Joshua Flanegan, 63, farmer, North Carolina; Betsey,56, Ky.; Linda,15, Ky.; Bewford, 12, Ky.; Susana Ross,25, Ky. "blind". According to Leon Vanlandingham, this Flanegan family is actually the Joshua Vanlandingham family after they changed their name!! It seems that this has happened on other occassions with the Vanlandingham name. All the given names and ages match. When John and Nancy moved to Carter Co., John’s mother and stepfather apparently moved at the same time. Incidentally, Joshua Vanlandingham’s son, Madison, moved to Platte Co. Mo. in the 1850’s, the same county where John Kinnamon (Nancy’s brother) and their father, George Kinnamon, moved in the 1850’s! On the 1850 census, living right next to John Nelson Ross and the “Flanegan” family, is one Reuben Truman Ross. Reuben Truman Ross was born Sept. 11, 1822 in Ky. and died 29 Sept. 1868 in Neodesha KS. Reuben married Rebecca L. James on 7 Sept. 1848 in Carter,Ky . Rebecca was born 14 Sept. 1831 in Carter,Ky and died 21 Apr 1882/1892 in Neodesha, Wilson, Kansas. Reuben was the son of Richard Ross and Catherine McCleese (married 29 Sep 1814 in Bath Co. KY.). Reuben moved his family to Kansas in the mid 1850’s. There are several pieces which seem to link Reuben with John Nelson Ross: 1) the afforementioned 1850 Carter Co., Ky. census; 2) his father married into the same McClease clan as Andrew Zornes and Rachel Rhodisa "Dicie" Tackett. Andrew and Dicie are related to John Nelson Ross; 3) I have a copy of an old tintype photo of an elderly lady which is entitled: "Becky Ross, born 1831". This was given to me by Opal Sparks, Opal’s husband, Glen Sparks, is descendant of John Nelson Ross’s son, Reuben Ross. Rebecca (James) Ross, wife of Reuben Truman Ross, was born in 1831!! My guess is that, some time after Reuben Truman Ross died in Kansas, Rebecca, well on in years, decided to send a photo of herself to her husband’s family in Ky. Reuben Truman Ross might have been John Nelson Ross’s cousin, it doesn’t seem likely that they were brothers. The above Richard Ross, father of Reuben Truman Ross, also had daughters Margaret, Eleanor (?) and Susanna. Other sources refer to daughters named Mary Ann and Mary Elizabeth Ross. Margaret Ross married Arthur Prince; Susanna was probably blind at a young age and may never have married. The reported Mary Ann Ross married Robert Talton Wilburn. Mary Elizabeth Ross married William R. James. Jacob Ross married Elizabeth Denton (same Denton clan as Elizabeth (Denton) Vanlandingham) on 26 Sep 1815 in Bath Co., KY; Mary married Rev. Jeremiah M. Hunt on 27 October 1805; and Margaret married Wesley Denton on 23 November 1818 in Fleming Co., Ky.. These Denton and Hunt families also married into the Bath County Vanlandinghams, AND, were the same families that John Nelson Ross appears to be living next to (or with), on the 1840 Bath County census!! Jeremiah's Hunt's family intermarried with this Denton clan about a dozen times, that I have been able to document. Jacob and Mary's sister, Margaret Ross, married a Wesley Denton. Wesley was the son of Abraham Denton and Sarah "Sally" Hunt! , Wesley Denton was uncle to Elizabeth (Denton) Vanlandingham. Before John Nelson Ross left Bath Co., he had one son, who he named John PIAT Ross. John Nelson Ross's son, Jeremiah Jacob Hunt Ross, was born about one year after the death of Rev. Jeremiah Hunt, the husband of Mary (Ross) Hunt. The above referenced Rev. Jeremiah Hunt is my candidate as source for my great grandfather’s rather unusual name: Jeremiah Jacob Hunt Ross. On the 1820 Bath County census there is a Betsy Ross, head of household, and with her is 1 male (0-4). I’m guessing that the male is John Nelson Ross (age 2), and that Betsy is his mother, and is the same Elizabeth Ross who is to marry Joshua Vanlandingham in 1829. On the 1820 census the following names are listed, one under the other: West Denton,John Vanlandingham, Joshua Vanlandingham, William Denton, Betsy Ross, Sarah Denton, Polly Vanlandingham. Concerning a John Ross who was born 18 September 1754 in Prince William Co., VA.: There sems to be conflicting evidence as to his wife's name. One name given is Susannah Piat (also spelled Pyatt and Piatt). There is a family ledgend that John Nelson Ross's father was the 3rd son of a Scottish duke, who married a Vanlandingham. The Vanlandingham family disapproved of the marriage and forced a divorce. John's father then left the area, and John was left to be raised by the Vanlandinghams. Personally, I give no credence to this story, and I record it here only in the interests of completeness. The obituary of John Nelson Ross states that the Kinnamon family was traveling through Bath County when John and Nancy met. There is some recollection that a descendent of Nancy's brother, John Kinnamon, claimed that John Kinnamon was "from Louisville", so this may have been one of the places that the Kinnamon family settled. John Kinnamon was in Missouri by 1860, and his birth place is listed as Ky.. John Nelson Ross and Nancy moved from Bath County to Carter Co., Ky. in1845, and subsequently recorded claims to several plots of land in the Tygarts Creek area. If John's father came from Scotland, why did he give his children the middle names of prominent local families (ie. Piatt, Hunt, Johnson), implying that he was related to them in some way? Why was Willie Sparks ( John Nelson Ross’s adopted son) buried next to John Nelson Ross (note, Willie died earliest of all males)? The 1860 Platte Co., Mo. census appears to give us Nancy’s father, George W. Kinnamon (b. Jan. 15, 1794 in Maryland ). I haven’t been able to find George in my "Kinnamon Family in America" book yet. On this line I’ve also been trying to track down info on the Rachel Kinnamon who married Austin Vanlandingham on Aug. 30, 1847 in Ky. I have been in contact with a descendent of Rachel through her second husband, William Abner Fox. There is good circumstantial evidence to suggest the Rachel is a sister to Nancy and John. A couple of things still keep me from saying that this explanation is 100% correct. Most importantly, why don’t any of John and Nancy’s descendents have any knowledge of John’s family living in Carter County? That seems totally out of character for the way people live down there. Also, there don’t appear to be any photos of either Elizabeth or Joshua that have been passed down through any family line.

Mary Ross at http://www.acun.com/dentons “Raised his grandson Wayne Jacob Ross after Wayne’s father, Dempsey French Ross married Talma Fitzpatrick” Here is some info on Jeramiah Ross (per Russ DeBord(?): In 1876 at the age of 20, the young Jeramiah married Sarah Alice Campbell who was then just 16 years old. Jeramiah and Sarah lived as farmers in the northeastern part of Ky. where the three states of Ohio, West Virginia and Ky. merge. They lived in various parts of Greenup, Elliott and Carter counties where their eleven children were born. According to one of their daughters, Bertha, who gave this interview in 1972 at the age of 80, "they lived just to this side of Beartown, away down under the hill where the roads are built so high." They were living here in 1900 because Bertha recollects going to Brushe's school in Greenup at the age of 6. Sometime after 1900, the family moved to Elton, Wisconsin for a period of 6 months to a year. According to Bertha, they stayed only briefly because her mother wasn't satisfied there, and that's the one thing her Daddy would give into. This was also verified by Jeramiah Ross's grandson, Earl Jones, who said his grandfather was a stubborn man and very set in his ways and the only thing he relented in was moving back to Ky. from Wisconsin at his wife's urging. When the Ross family moved back to Ky., they eventually settled in the Olive Hill area around 1906 or 1907. Apparently Jeramiah Ross was famous for his stubbornness, and Earl Jones (grandson) says that people used to say . . . "stubborn as Jerry Ross." Bertha added that it's a Ross family trait to argue, but that the Campbell's (her mother's maiden name) were peace-lovers. Of Jeramiah, Earl Jones said, "Boy, I loved that old man, I'm telling you. He died at 94 years of age, and he smoked and chewed tobacco all his life. Bertha, says Jeramiah had his own teeth until he was well into his 80's, and that when he was 92, he didn't look over 65. lived on Chilicothe St., Jackson, Ohio (1949) per DC 37560-24 photo per Isabelle (Ross) Henson: “Pa Ross came from Ky. with 3 horses: Dick, Don and a blind horse named Prince” per Russ DeBord “Sometime after 1900, the family moved to Elton, Wisconsin for a period of 6 months to a year. According to Bertha, they stayed only briefly because her mother wasn't satisfied there, and that's the one thing her Daddy would give into.
