Marriage intentions filed 3 Apr 1843 in Cleveland OH
She died 14 June 1868 in Cleveland of Cancer at age of 44.
Note beware of some documents with her name as "GROSS", not "CROSS"!.
She is buried in Woodland Cem. First in Section 23, then final in Section 10, Lot 84.
Other notes indicate she was widowed by William Clegg befor marring Kaneen. Needs to be checked out. She was only 19 when married to Thomas, so does not sound correct? Could it have been another Cross sister?
