  1. Thank you for doing this. I am the great granddaughter of George James Ross who married his daughter Henrietta Smith. George had children by another woman Florence Harmond Welch of which I am her great grand daughter. I found out through Ancestry I am related to the Smith family and I am in the process of doing family research on this line.
