About Arthur Brown Ross, US Congress

Member of the House of Representatives for district between the Broad and Catawba Rivers

Also a delegate from the section of which Fairfield Co. SC was part, took two weeks by carriage to make the trip to Washington

   Feb. Term 1797, Grand Jury Drawn from Box No. 1 and No. 2: James Rochell, Arthur B. Ross
   August Term 1797, Grand Jury Drawn from Box No. 1 and No. 2 . . . Abner Ross . . . The Grand Jury Impannel'd & Sworn . . . Arthur B. Ross foreman

Arthur Brown Ross was two years the junior of his sister Elizabeth, and

must have been her playmate, but in after years, his removal to South Carolina

and her marriage to William Moores in North Carolina necessarily caused a

separation, which was a grief to both.

Arthur Brown Ross mentions the death of his sister, Elizabeth Moores, in

his diary, and this simple statement, together with the record of her birth, is all

that we have to chronicle of her.

William Moores, who was a brother of Henry Moores, lived near Salisbury, N. C.,

in the same neighborhood with the Congers, Morgans and Rounsavals.

The date of birth, marriage and death of William Moores has not been found in

the various family records, but he is mentioned in A. B. Ross's diary, and was living in 1800. It is a regrettable fact that complete records of the descendants of William Moores and his wife, Elizabeth Ross Moores, have not been furnished by their descendants, but enough has been given to form a nucleus for further research, and will therefore be of interest to the families connected with them. Record of only one child of this union is here given. Further information will be appreciated.
