John W. Ross
Rutland Daily Herald, June 9, 1917:
John Webb Ross died yesterday morning at 12.15 o'clock at his home on South Main street after a long illness with chronic heart disease. He was born in Clarendon in 1840, son of the late Walter and Eliza Webb Ross.
He served in the Civil war for three months with the 1st Vermont regiment, company G.
Mr. Ross conducted a dry goods store in Vergennes a number of years and in 1872 he went to Middletown, N.Y., and there carried on a similar business for 12 years. In 1884 he came to Rutland and was associated with the firm of Ross Brothers, retiring from that about 19 years ago. Since retiring from the dry goods trade he had conducted an insurance business.
In 1869 Mr. Ross married Miss Mary E. Keeler of Vergennes, who survives him. He is also survived by two brothers, James W. Ross of Fulton, Ill., and George W. Ross of Vergennes.
For many years Mr. Ross has been a deacon of the Congregational church of this city and he was a well known Grand Army man. He was also a member of the Masonic order.
The funeral will be held tomorrow afternoon at 3.30 o'clock in the chapel of the Congregational church.
