      Hi, I think Aaron Closs was born 1830. His father's 1st wife Anna Merkel died 1828. In 1830 census I think my recently widowed 3rd great grandmother and children Gertrude, Harriet and Henry are living with George Closs. They are gone 1840 census as grandmother Rachel has married widower John Rhea and George has married Catherine Barnes. Later census places Aaron as born 1830. Aaron likes to play with his age crossing into Canada and Civil War papers but only by one or two years. Henry is listed as born 1826 however a Merkel related to Anna told me Henry was a little older than listed on grave stone so he could be 1825. How Henry's father also a Henry, fits into the Closs tree is unclear but I think he was a brother to John Closs Sr. Do you know anything on this? Aaron is my "cousin's" 3rd great grandfather. We are trying to figure out why he wanted his children born on the reservation in Canada. A long way to go. Aaron's nephew told him that he(Aaron) said he was part Indian. I have a picture I think is him and he looks it. Cousin's grandmother&mother do also. These Closs's are giving me a hard time! Dave
