"In the person of his wife, whose maiden name was Mary Winans, Mr. [Ossian] Ross had an able coadjutor, who sympathized with him heartily in his work, and by her advice and assistance was an important factor in his success in life. She was born April 1, 1793, in Morris County, N. J., and was married in Waterloo, N. Y., July 7, 1811. She was a fine type of the self-sacrificing, warm-hearted pioneer women of this State, and at her death a source of valuable information concerning the pioneer history of this part of Illinois, whose growth she had watched with intelligent interest, was lost."
From: Portrait and biographical album of Fulton County, Illinois, containing full page portraits and biographical sketches of prominent and representative citizens of the county ... together with portraits and biographies of all the presidents of the United States and governors of the state. 1890. Chicago: Biographical Pub. Co., p. 774.
