willyk wrote:The Real History of Ross Ave.Leviticus and Menthol Ross were direct descendants of our nation’s beloved flag-maker, Betsy Ross. Their grandson, Steve Ross, parlayed a New Jersey funeral home into the world’s biggest media and entertainment conglomerate -- Time Warner.
In 1903 the Ross brothers came to Dallas from France, where the family had been living as expatriates. They were trained as pharmacists. It was here, in a shabby shed at the back of the large Ross Family Estate on Poultry Row that the Ross brothers invented their famous cough drops.
Actually that article seems way to off to be true. Especially when a little research shows a different Ross Brothers. http://www.dallasblog.com/2008081510033 ... thers.html
I was interested in this article due to the Betsy Griscom Ross connection as I am 1st cousin 8x removed related. I would have loved a connection to Dallas, but how could they be a direct descendant of Betsy Ross when 1) She and John Ross did not have any children together (she remarried 2x after and had 5 kids with Claypool & Ashburn) and not from France in the 1900s. She was kind of here in the states for the revolution and all. LOL I can not find any other references to a Leviticus and Menthol Ross anywhere.
