The heads of this household had a daughter who had a son who had a famous daughter (still living).Who is their famous great-granddaughter?
Dana and Hannah Wrighthad two daughters (plus a few sons):Emma bca: 1888Hannah bca: 1858Hannah seems to have died before 1870, so that leaves Emma as the daughter.I did MANY census searches here, and kept going farther and farther back, finding more children.I found a Rootsweb family tree that referenced Dana in the 1910 SD Census. In that census, he was living with Emma's family.Emma married Alexander RossThey had 4 sons (plus a few daughters):Walter A Ross bca: July 1887Gordon W Ross b: 9 Oct 1888Donald Morrison Ross b: 24 Sep 1897Alexander bca: 1888So one of those four Ross sons has to be the father of the still living famous daughter.I focused on Alexander for a while, since he was the youngest and you said the famous person was still living. I widened that search after MANY long, fruitless searches.Did a search in Google for: actress ross "south dakota"Found that Marion Ross was born in MN in 1928 (after looking in IMDB.COM).I found her living with her parents in the 1930 MN census. Her father was Gordon W Ross, born in SD.Deb
Great job, Deb! It was Marion Ross, who celebrated her 79th birthday just yesterday.
I came across an Emma Wright but the pedigree didn't quite fit. http://www.allbreedpedigree.com/emma+wrightNice going Deb.
Ooooh, you were so close!
