My grandfather William Albert Ross 1890?(He was about 70 years old when he passed, but we don't know his age.His oldest son was born in 1917. was born in McConellville in York County. He died in Winnsboro, SC in 1964.He worked at Friendship College in Rock Hill, NC as a professor and was educated at Colgate Univ. in Rochester, New York, Hampton Institute, and Benedict College. He was of African descent and owned land in York County.
I am in search for his father and mother who lived in York, County, both died while he was very young. Family members reared him.
Another question is his middle name "Albert", is this name a significant connection to the Ross clan?
I would appreciate any information that anyone can assist me with. Thank-you.
