Zilpha Shipman Boss

Good Afternoon,

Zilpha Shipman Boss lived for many years after the death of her husband Andrew. In this picture you can still see the sadness in her eyes. I wonder if she’s sitting on the porch of the home Andrew had built for them all those years ago.

    Hello, I’m helping someone with their BOSS family research. I found that Andrew and Zilpha were married in Washtenaw Co., MI. There was also a George S. BOSS who lived in Ypsilanti, Washtenaw, MI in 1850. From there, he and wife Nancy lived in Ridgeway, Lenawee Co. MI. George was born abt. 1818 in NY.
    I think that George had a brother named Truman BOSS, who was a pioneer in Columbia Co., WI and then Rice Co., MN. Truman was b. abt. 1816 in NY and his death was in Ridgeway, MI, while visiting relatives (probably George) in 1886. Truman is buried in Oakland Cemetery, Sauk Centre, Stearns Co., MN.

    Any idea if these BOSS men are related?
