COLONEL JAMES R. ROSS


Source: Daily News Review, Oct 29, 1900 p 1

Colonel James R. Ross, a former resident of this city, died Saturday morning at his home in Indianapolis from paralysis of the stomach. Mr. Ross was born in Bellfontaine, Ohio, August 16, 1841 and six years later came with his parents to this city. He clerked in the dry goods store of Campbell & Harter until the Civil War broke out when he enlisted with Co. I, 11th Indiana Volunteers, under command of General Lew Wallace. At the end of the 100-day service he reenlisted for 3 years and by successive promotions became a Lt. Captain; Regimental Staff Officer; and Lt. Colonel. After the war he went to Chicago but in 1873 moved to Indianapolis and has since been engaged in the wholesale business. Col. Ross has ever been active in state military affairs and also in the uniformed rank Knights of Pythias. His wife was Miss Alice Crawford, a daughter of one of our pioneer families. She survives him together with one son, Fred C. Ross. The funeral took place at Indianapolis this morning, a number of relatives and old friends going over from here to attend. The Second Regiment of the Indiana National Guard; the First Regiment URK of P; Indiana Commander, Loyal Legion; the Union Veteran League and the Indianapolis Post, GAR acted as escort to Crown Hill Cemetery - kbz
