Death* 20 July 1902  At Home, Smithshire, Warren Co., IL1,3 
News/Obit* 29 July 1902  DIED IN ILLINOIS

The death of Mrs. Elizabeth Ross occurred near Smithshire, Illinois on Sunday 20 July and the funeral services were held the following day. The deceased was the daughter of George and Christena Adams and was born near Adamsville where she grew to womanhood. She married Dennison Ross and for some time afterward lived in Adamsville where Mr. Ross kept store. About forty years ago they moved to Illinois and in that place they soon became prominent and successful citizens. Mr. Ross died about twenty years ago. Mrs. Ross' death was due to rheumatism and dropsy from which she had suffered for a number of years. The near relatives of the deceased living here are her three sisters Mrs. Helen Bowden, Mrs. J. D. Hanks and Mrs. J. A. Bainter and a brother George P. Adams. A sister Mrs. Sarah Powelson lives at Burnside, Illinois and a brother Martin lives in Lucas County, Iowa. Mrs. Ross was well known among the older residents of this place. She was a woman worthy of confidence and respect, and her departure will be mourned by a large circle of friends. Eight children survive her and mourn the death of their affectionate mother.
