Rollins & Ross Families- Clay Co, Missouri
A Virtual Cemetery created by: NANCY M
Description: These are the graves of my great great grandparents and their children and in-laws.My great grandmother, Nancy (Nannie) Ross Rollins McGee, is the child of Eveline Ross Rollins and Benjamin Franklin Rollins. She is buried in Oklahoma City or Lawton, Oklahoma, and I am searching for her grave. Nancy Ross Rollins McGee and her husband, James were the parents of my grandmother, Evelyn Jane McGee Mills.Also in this cemetery are the graves of Squire John Ross, the brother of Eveline Ross Rollins, he lost his life in 1854 during the "Smithville Tragedy." He was stabbed to death while trying to help John W. Douglass and his father, William Ross. The article that was published in the Liberty Tribune on August 7, 1854 and also later published in the New York Times on August 24, 1854 states the that Samuel Shackelford shot William Ross twice and then turned and shot Mr. Douglass twice and the shot Mr. Imhoff twice. It goes on to say that Mr. Douglass was armed with a bowie knife and pistol and that attempted to defend himself, but Shackelford was able to seize his gun and knife. Shackelford then "commenced the work of destruction on Douglass, inflicting several wounds, of which Douglass fell dead. ....Persons then interfered to stop the effusion of blood. Samuel Shackelford stabbed every person whom he suspected as his enemy, inflicting a mortal wound on S. J. Ross." Squire John Ross was 21 years old when he died. Also included in this cemetery is William Ross and Nancy Hawkins Ross, the parents of Eveline Ross Rollins and parents of Squire John Ross. William Ross was the man who was shot and who I refer to in the paragraph above.
