Mary Etta Roseboom was the eldest daughter of Abraham Fletcher Roseboom and Amanda Elizabeth Lucas. She was born about 1866 or 1867 in Concord Township, Ross County, Ohio. She shows up with her parents in the 1870 census as 3 year old Mary. In the 1880 census, she shows up as the 13/14 year old granddaughter of Elza and Mary Roseboom (Abraham Fletcher Roseboom's parents who were living next door to Abraham Fletcher Roseboom in that census]. She married William "Mack" Carmean in Ross County, Ohio on September 15, 1891. They moved to Illinois where she gave birth to her son, Harry Franklin Carmean, on July 8, 1893 in Farmer City, DeWitt, Illinois. There are stories that she had a daughter named Esta in 1894 in Champaign County, Illinois; however, I have been unable to find any records of such a child to date. Mary Etta (Roseboom) Carmean died on February 9, 1895 in Illinois. Her husband apparently returned to Ross County with her body and buried her somewhere there. Her Illinois death was actually recorded in Ross County, Ohio under the name Etta Carmean. Her age was recorded incorrectly on her death certificate which made it a little more difficult tracking down her parents, but we've done that now. Other than this there is almost no information available on this individual. Can anyone fill me in any more on Mary Etta Roseboom Carmean? Any information would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
