Pheobe Ross, My Grandmother - a Memory of Knockadoois.
My grandmother, Pheobe Ross was born in Knockadoois. I believe her birthdate was 30 January 1884. She left Ireland with her sister Sarah from Londonderry on the ship "Furnessia". I don't have the departure date, but the ship arrived in New York on 10 October 1906. I believe she also had a sister, Annie Ross. Her father was David Ross and her mother was Sarah Foster. They died in the 1920's and are buried in the graveyard of the Church of Ireland in Ballyconnell, Co. Cavan
