Rose Etta Dingman Russ
Birth: Jul. 8, 1870
Montgomery County
New York, USA
Death: Apr. 25, 1915
Montgomery County
New York, USA

My Great Grandmother (Maternal).

Rose Etta Dingman married Lorenzo Edgerton, 22 March 1893, in Canajoharie, Montgomery Co., New York; they had a child together, my grandmother Mable May Edgerton. Rose divorced Lorenzo and later married Chauncey Russ on 26 August 1897 in Ames, Montgomery Co., New York.

Rose Etta passed away from tuberculosis. Her brother Nathan and sister Belinda also die from tuberculosis.

My great grandmother must have been a brave and determined women to get a divorce from her husband. At the time, it couldn't have been easy for her. Rose divorced Lorenzo about 1896-1897.

Less than two months after Rose dies, her son Harvey, age fourteen, drowns in the Erie Canal. Family members claim he is buried next to his mother Rose, although the caretaker has no record of his being buried in the cemetery, and there is no stone marker for him. His father Chauncey, also buried there has no individual stone marker either.

My great grandmother's obituary.

Mrs. Russ was born July 8, 1870, at Marshville, a daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Henry Dingman.

She is survived by her husband, two sons, Arthur and Harvey Russ; two daughters, Mrs. Morgan Dingman and Miss Bertha Russ; three sisters, Mrs. Josephine Kyser, of St. Johnsville; Mrs. Lucinda Chest(should be Andrews)of Cooperstown; Mrs. John Vogel, of Canajoharie ; four brothers, John Dingman of Canajoharie, Harvey and Silas of St. Johnsville; Curtis of Nelliston and her mother, Mrs. Eliza Dingman of St. Johnsville.

The funeral will be held on Wednesday at 12 o'clock at the Methodist church. The Rev. John Landry will officiate.

Unknown where her first husband, Lorenzo Edgerton (my great grandfather) is buried. He remarried, and was living in Alpena, Alpena Co., Michigan in the 1920 Federal Census, in the 1930 Federal Census, his wife Alice is head of family living with her daughter and Alice is listed as a widow. Lorenzo died between 1920 and 1930. Lorenzo's ancestry goes back to pilgrim William Bradford of the Mayflower.
