One "-tress" that has not fallen off the map is "actress." A related form, "-ess," that has most certainly fallen off the map is on a plaque at Emily Dickinson's gravesite. It reads, "In Memoriam, Emily Dickinson, Poetess."

We stil see "laundress" occasionally, and The Laundress is the brand name for a cleaning product line.
