      BURRIS ROSS (as updated 04-03-12; Michael & Wendy Ross; Sent: Saturday, June 02, 2012)

      Burris Ross was born in Kentucky?? in 1815. He had three children with his first wife, Melvina, and one child with his second wife, Margaret. He died a pauper in early-December, 1857 in Harrison County, IN. There is great variation in the spelling of his first name, as reported in official and personal records of the time.

      1. BURRES This spelling is found in the Marriage Index IL, IN 1790 - 1850, Sept 30, 1837, Crawford County, IN, to Melvina Crawford. Marriage Register, book A, page 172, entry 618. Consent for Melvina (being underage) provided by her father, J. Crawford. Copy in the possession of Michael T. Ross.

      2. BURRIES This spelling is found in the 1850 census, August 14, 1850, line/hhld 326, District #14, Harrison Cty, IN. Copy in the possession of Michael T. Ross.

      3. BURAS This spelling is found in the 1850 census, October 11, 1850, Jennings, Crawford County, IN. (note he was counted twice in the 1850 census), pg. 63, line/hhld 782. Copy in the possession of Michael T. Ross.

      4. BURROWS This spelling is found for his listing in the Marriage Index: Indiana, 1851 - 1900, April 10, 1853, in Crawford County Indiana, County Court Records, book B, page 180, line 21. (m. Margaret Dooley). Copy in the possession of Michael T. Ross.

      5. BURROUGHS This spelling is found in the listing for Margaret Dooley in the Marriage Index: Indiana, 1851 - 1900. Married April 10, 1853 in: Crawford County Indiana, County Court Records.

      6. BOROUGHS This spelling is listed as a name variation (Crawford County, Indiana Courthouse, Marriages in Crawford County, book B page 180, line 21, Crawford County Courthouse). This is the same document as cited above, in #4.

      7. BURRIS This spelling is listed in the front of the family Bible of Emma Edith Ross Van Metre, provided by Frances Helen Ross Jones, who in-turn provided a copy to Michael Thompson Ross, through U.S. Mail, August 13, 2004.

      Where was he born?; State-of-Indiana-Certified death certificate for his daughter, Lucinda Evaline (Jones), indicates Burrus (sic) was born in "Missouri". (informant was J. B. Jones, English, IN, April 25, 1915); State-of-Indiana-Certified death certificate for his son, Thomas Jefferson, indicates that Burrus (sic) was born in "Ireland". (informant was John L. Ross, Marengo, IN, January 23, 1929); 1910 Indiana census, Liberty Township, Crawford County, for Thomas Ross family, indicates that the father was born in "Tennessee".; 1900 Indiana census, Southeast Township, Orange County, for Thomas J. Ross family, indicates that the father was born in "Tennessee".; 1850 Indiana census, District Forty Five, Harrison County, August 14, 1850, indicates that Burries (sic) was a farmer born in "Ohio". 1850 Indiana census, Jennings Township, Crawford County, October 11, 1850, indicates that Buras (sic) was a boatsman born in "Kentucky".

      When was he born?; 1850 Indiana census, District Forty Five, Harrison County, August 14, 1850, indicates he was 34 years old.; 1850 Indiana census, Jennings Township, Crawford County, October 11, 1850, indicates he was 35 years old.
      On this basis we may extrapolate that he was born in 1815, between August 14, and October 11.

      Where did he die?; He died in Harrison County, IN.

      When did he die?; His fourth child, Ambrose S. Ross, was born in 1856, and his second wife, the child's mother, Margaret Dooley, remarried, May 3, 1860.
      Burris Ross died a pauper in early-December, 1857.
