Son of William Ross
Husband of Nannie Mize Ross

J. M. Ross of Center died at 1:30 on Wednesday, November 20, 1918. He had been in ill health for some time, with stomach cancer. He had resided in Center all his life.

Rev. F. L. Hall conducted the religious services, which had been postponed because of "extreme bad weather," at the family home on Shelbyville Street. Survivors included his wife, 7 sons, and 2 daughters. One son, Lewis Ross, was wired at Camp Travis about his father's death.

Mr. Ross was a member of the Methodist Church. He was interred at Fairview Cemetery.
