Ross Ancestry, Glasgow, Scotland

This morning, I visited Glasgow's famous Necropolis ( City of the Dead) where I obtained information on Ross family history from a memorial stone there, viz:

  • John Macdonald Ross of Ledgowan, Achnasheen, Rossshire. He was born Dingwall May 28th 1838 and died at Glasgow July 9th 1905.
  • Wife, Robina Gilroy, died Dec 9th 1920.
  • Son, Robert Ross, died Dec 20th 1935 age 58 years.
