11.  James Harvey Ross...This is my gg grandfather.  On the Navarro County website he is listed as J.H. Ross Sr. and my g grandfather is listed as J.H. Ross, Jr.  However, this is not the case.  J.H. Ross, Sr was actually James Harvey Ross.  J.H.Ross, Jr was actually James Hosea Ross.   He was called Hosea (on his death certificate) but I believe everyone called him "Hought"  (pronounced 'holt").  I know that James Harvey Ross fought in the Civil War and was a POW, as he contracted TB which was the eventual cause of his death.  However, I have found conflicting information about his service.  I have found POW records on ancestry but it does not list his regiment.  There are two James H. Ross listed in the US Civil War Soldiers on ancestry and the CWSS...one serving in the 13th Texas Volunteers, and another in the 15th Texas Infantry.  The Navarro County website lists him as the 4th Corp'l, Beat #7, 19th Brigade, under a Capt. L.D. McConnico.  So I am still trying to confirm exactly where he served.
