red mail George Ross, b 1798, father of Joseph Ross b 1820
George Ross is my 4 times great grandfather, he married Sarah Bickley on April 12 1818 in St Peter's Church, Wolverhampton, they has 12 children, Mary 1818, Joseph 1820, Thomas 1822, Lucy 1825, Enoch 1827, Cecily 1828, Helen 1830, George 1836, Ellen 1838, Sarah 1841, Adam 1843, and Selina 1847. The family lived in Bloxwich and Blakenall Heath for many years and some of them still do. Joseph is my 3 times great grandfather. I have a significant amount of information about George's children, and Joseph's family, and descendants that I will share if anyone needs it. George Ross is a black hole, I have him on Censuses from 1841 to 1881, and on each his birthplace is listed as Chesterfield, Derbyshire, I am in Canada and not able to do any on site research. The marriage lists witnesses as Sarah's father William, the other witness must have been someone connected to the church as he appears as witness on many marriages. I have looked for George's birth everywhere and anywhere that seems to make sense and I can find a few George Rosses, but none that are born in Derbyshire. If anyone has any information or can suggest what my next steps should be it would be terrific.
