      (2) According to a family tree contributed by an unknown person to Ancestry.com's OneWorldTree, John Quincy ROSS married Mary Ellen VAN SICKLE on 24 December 1874 in Louisa County, IA. The compiler has found a record of the marriage of I. J. ROPS to Ellen VANSICKLE on 24 December 1874 in Louisa County, IA. The compiler doubts that John Quincy ROSS and I. J. ROPS were the same person. If they were the same person, then the marriage in question must have ended in divorce or annulment no later than 11 April 1875. John Quincy ROSS married Eliza LEE on 11 April 1875 in Henry County, IA; and Ellen (VAN SICKLE) ROSS married A. N. PONTZIUS on 26 February 1882 in Louisa County, IA.

      Despite the compiler's doubts that John Quincy ROSS and I. J. ROPS were the same person, Mary Ellen VAN SICKLE is presented here as the first wife of John Quincy ROSS, in order to stimulate further research.
