  To prove. 1830 census Blount Co., TN shows only one Ross family...Mary Ross. Apparently she had a family of 3 boys and 4 girls, with she and husband not identified. This was common when the head of household was unable to fill his roll in the family - and accident was the usual case. Also 1830 census Blount Co., TN there was a George Cook, an older man. Suspect his wife was Margaret, because in 1840 Margaret was listed as an older with no older man in the household. They lived a few farms away from the Ross family in the 1830 census.
  1840 census, the Ross families of Alexander, an older man, and James Ross (our James) were listed, undoubtedly connected as they lived near one another. There were several Cook men. Henry and William lived near James and Sally. Margaret, Peter and Joseph were in the area, but not close by.
  1790 census in Guilford Co., NC. two Ross men. Henry and Reuben living near one another. Henry had two men over 16 in his household. Reuben shows one. There was Jesse Cook in the same census some distance away. The 1820 tax list includes, ROSS: Benjamin, Edward, James, Joseph, Leven, Levy and Thomas.
