John A. Ross

The death of John A. Ross, aged 82, a former resident of Ridgway, calls to mind that he was not only an excellent citizen of this place, but had a reputation of a high grade of craftsmanship in the trade of carpenter and contractor. Mr. Ross had a great part in erecting many building in Ridgway. His work was always honest and first class.

Thank you to my cousin Janet and her husband Larry, for researching the Ridgway Advocate and Ridgway Record to provide this information. Their efforts are greatly appreciated. jer
