, photo circa 1885

Virginia Lee "Jennie" Ross was born Feb. 2, 1867 in Carter Co.,Ky..,
the daughter of Reuben Fletcher Ross and Theresa Ellen (Offill) Ross.
Jennie died April 12,1888 and is buried at Ross Chapel Cem.,Carter Co.,Ky.. She never married.

Virginia was apparently originally buried on the Ross family farm, near Maude St., off Ben's Run, in Carter Co.,Ky..
Below are photographs of that gravesite. It is an over-grown wooded area, on a hill near the present home of Mary Debord.
Virginia must have been later moved to her present resting place in Ross Chapel Cemetery.
