Amos R. Cass Find A Grave Memorial# 102489419
Amos had a wandering birth date, so I suspect the 1881 year-of-birth is off quite a bit.

He was on the 1870 and 1880 censuses with his parents as born 1869/1870:

Where do you live and how are you related

Thank you for the information and it has been posted to his memorial. Can you tell us who is parents were. Also, there is a memorial for Mary Ruth Throgmorton, 1929-1930, in the same cemetery. Do you happen to know anything about this little one?

I wanted to let you know that I found the parents of your cousin and have linked them to his memorial.

Thanks again for the information that has allowed me to make his memorial more complete. If you have any photos, they can be added as well.
