Riley Andrew ROSS was born on 9 Feb 1891/92 in Reagan, Henderson Co. TN.1114,1127,1263,1389
The year on the cemetery marker (1892) differs from the year on the pension
application (1891). The bible record says "William R. Ross was bornd feb.
9 1892 is 17 in 1909." Nancy's pension application, prepared 1 Feb. 1901,
listed three children under 16: Steven W. Ross, born Jany 6th, 1886; Resia E.
Ross, born Novr 26th 1887, and Wm R. Ross, born Feby 9th 1891. Dugall's application
also said Feby 9/91. William's application for Social Security number gave hs
date of birth as Feb. 9, 1892; there is a 2 written in a different direction
between "Feb" and "9." Someone must have written in the
number for the month. He appeared in the census in 1920 in Henderson Co. TN.34 William R., 27; Dovie, 25; Flossie
M. 9, Truman 8; Jewel D. 6; Pearley T. 4-1/2; Orine 2-1/2 On 6 Jul 1938 he was
Lumber Co. worker.1263
William worked at Stewart Lumber Company, Route 2, Lexington, Tennessee, when
he applied for a Social Security number. He died on 3 Feb 1966 in Henderson
Co. TN.33 The marker at
Center Hill reads: Ross, William R., 2/9/1892-2/3/1966, "Dad" footstone/Dovie
D., 5/31/1893-10/4/1975, "Mom" footstone, "Married May 16, 1909
He was buried about 3 Feb 1966 in Center Hill Cemetery, Lexington, TN.33 Dugall calls him William Riley.
One census lists him as William R. A. According to Pearl Veteto, A. stands for
Andrew. On his Social Security Application, Willliam listed himself as William
Rilie Ross. Parents: Dugal Washington ROSS
and Nancy Jane JOHNSON.|

Jemima ROSS???? appeared in the census in 1870 in Henderson Co. TN.1445 She died in 1886 in Dillingham Cemetery, Briggs, Burnet Co. TX.1372 Is this Jemima Ross? I think not, but some researchers believe otherwise. See notes under marriage.
Spouse: Jesse J. TAYLOR. Jesse J. TAYLOR and Jemima ROSS???? were married
in 1837 in St. Clair Co. AL.259
I had originally believed that Jesse's wife, Jemima, was Dugal's sister Jemima.
However, the 1881 administration of Dugald Ross (Sr) estate lists the heirs
of Jemima Bennett, wife of John Bennett and they all still lived in North Carolina.
This seems to exclude Jemima Taylor from being Jemima Ross.
