The Ringgold Record, 1894

DEATH of McKENDREE ROSS.

Civil War Flags.jpg Died, on Saturday, December 1, 1894, at his residence in Mt. Ayr, Iowa, McKendree ROSS, aged forty-six years, two months and sixteen days. Mr. Ross was born in Mahaska county, Iowa, September 15, 1848. When about eleven years old he moved to Mt. Ayr with his father, Thomas ROSS, Esq. Since he has grown to manhood he has served in many business capacities and had good business qualifications. He was a good penman and calculator and made himself useful in many business departments. At the time of his death he was engaged in the real estate and loan business with D. T. HOGUE. He had been for some time a member of the M. E. church of Mt. Ayr. He leaves a wife and five children. The funeral took place from the M. E. church on Monday at 11 a.m. and was conducted by the pastor, Rev. W. W. RAMSAY [with interment at Rose Hill Cemetery, Mount Ayr].

When a mere boy not much past fifteen, Mr. ROSS went into the Union army from Ringgold county. He joined the 8th Iowa Infantry [Company D] and served three years and made a first-class soldier as all comrades testify. He always took an interest in his fellow soldiers. He had sacrificed much for his country, and felt the effect of this sacrifice all his life.

NOTE: McKendree's mother was Martha A. ROSS.

McKendree enlisted from Mount Ayr, Iowa, as an 8th Corporal on July 28, 1863, and was mustered into service on July 28th with Company D of the 8th Iowa Cavalry. He was promoted to Full 6th Corporal on October, 1864. McKendree was mustered out of service on August 13, 1865 at Macon, Georgia. SOURCE: American Civil War Soldiers, ancestry.com
