I have several old familey stories that were written down by them that say that William F. Ross was a half brother to a John and Frank there is a mention of a sister who married a man named Curtis ewing from Columbus Oh. no mention of birth dates or deaths or the sisters name.
William and Frank fought in the cival war with the union calvery (I have more information on the unit if it would help anyone) John fought with the Confedrates I have no information on with what unit. All three survived the war. Shortly there after William moved to Mo.
as i mentoined before Willam F. Ross is always referd to as a Half brother and in one of the hand written stories by a Martha Ross Pahlhina written on July 3, 1978 (she would be one of William F. Ross's Grand children) she clams that Willams mother was a indian from WVa.
I would appriciate any help i have been stuck here for a very long time and it is only notes that i have that say he could be the son of Henery or a Wilburn Ross I could sure use a little help
