|Nancy Waterman||Ross Family Cemetery|
I first found out about the Ross Family Cemetery when I Google'd it. I found that there was a book with some information about this cemetery.....A Guide to Burial Sites Cemeteries and Random Stones in Cattaraugus County NY written by Marlynn McNallie Olson. This book states that there are 15 stones including the names of Green and Capron.
This cemetery is where the old homestead was located. On this property were several barns, one that was over 120 feet long, a huge house and a cheese factory. At one time Asa and Ambrose owned and ran 5 cheese factories.
Ambrose died in 1883 from an accident. His team of horses went through a bridge while on his way to one of his cheese factories. His sons, Elmer, Rueben and John continued on this farm with families of their own.

Got a question for you about Stephen Smiths stone, it appears to say that he died in 1860 something, very hard to read. Stephen White Smith, at least the one in the memorial is supposed to have died in 1907. I think you have got a photo of Stephen White (Find A Grave #13676307) instead of Stephen White Smith.
Your doing for a beginner, what I always try to do is make sure that I take low angle shots, and at least one closeup and one that shows the whole stone, you can always put more than one photo on a memorial.
Welcome to Findagrave
Thanks for the closeup photo of Stephen Smiths graves stone, wondering if maybe you had one that shows the whole stone.
