Shared note

From the book "Yelverton Payton, My Ancestor" by Evelyn Treadway - Page 146. About three years aftern their marriage, Tom and Eliza Ross moved from Ray County, Missouri, to southwestern Missouri. They settled near a crossroads called Pleasant Gap in the vicinity of Nevada and Pierce City, Missouri. They traved by covered wagon driving a team of mules. A cousin of Tom Ross, Ed Bailey, told that the covered wagon was no old-time "Thimble-skin" of popular make and that the team consisted of a mare mule named "Pidge" and a horse mule named "Pete". On arriving at their new home, Tom went to work at a sawmill. Their first son, Jacob T Ross was born here and died about six months later. The infant was buried near Pleasant Gap. Somtime in 1876, Tom and Eliza Ross decided to move back to Ray County, Missouri. In the meantime, he had traded teams. He now had a large black horse and a small bay horse. After returning to Ray County, the family moved to a log cabin north of Fleming, Missouri, on Panther Creek on what is now known as the Remely farm . Here was born the second son, John T Ross. This infant son died thirteen months later and was buried in South Point Cemetery in the Ross plot. After the death of this infant, the father returned to Pleasant Gap with his team and wagon and disinterred the body of his first son and returned it to Ray County; reburing the infant beside the one who had recently died.
