Do You Know About George Ross?


(Unfortunately for the last 3 weeks, I have been indisposed but am back on track now.  Thank you for your patience)

Did you know that George Ross, Pennsylvania Signer of the Declaration of Independence, was related to Betsey Ross by marriage as well as George Read of New Castle Delaware?

George Ross was the Uncle of John Ross who married Betsey Ross.  Betsey Ross claims she designed the first United States Flag.  We now know this to be untrue and records show it was actually Francis Hopkinson, another signer of the Declaration, who designed the first flag.

George Ross’s younger sister Gertrude married George Read of New Castle Delaware.  George Read was also a signer of the Declaration of Independence.
