RE: Susannah Decou Ross
If you look at the memorial you will see someone (not sure if it was you) requested a photo. I'm not related, only entered the information but if I get to the cemetery later in the spring and can find the grave I'll send you a copy.

RE: Susannah Decou Ross
I have no idea of who you are referring to. What is the memorial number?

RE: McNamee
I'll take a guess that it was Kern and she went to Chicago and lived with her cousin, my greatgrandfather, Luda B. McNamee. Did you look at Job McNamee Jr.s page? If your mom can add or correct anything I'd be happy to know. Also click on his father Job and his father Hugh. Hugh and Alice lived in Maryland and most of their kids went to Ohio in about 1805. I rarely meet anyone from my Job line. :) Love to know about your line and anything more about George that I don't have on his page.

Luda's father was William Meredith McNamee, who was George Benton's brother. George was Luda's uncle and therefore cousin to Ruby. I just updated their father, Job McNamee Jr.s page with all the children. Click on the ones I have on site and Job's parent...

We are related, some sort of cousins I guess.

RE: Ruby
Well unless she had an earlier marriage or I got his name wrong then this Ruby that lived with Luda must be another cousin although your grandmother is also his cousin as George Benton McNamee was his uncle.

I see that there is a Ruby Kline so perhaps since she was married and living w/out husband w/Luda maybe she had a second marriage or somehow the census got it wrong which was common but then I don't remember how I found her husband's full name. Please let me know.

Minnie McNamee
I have a sister to Ruby named Minnie (probably not proper name), born 1885, married to Bryce B. Burton with 2 children.

I'm so sorry it took me so long to correct her name. I added Gerald also. I have a Ruby Kern living with my grgrandfather's family in Chicago in a 1920s census and it is his cousin. He was Luda Bertrand Mcnamee. I have Ruby married to a Gerald Kern. Is this right? Here is the census:
