Ross, George 1730-1779 A signer of the Declaration of Independence; born in Newcastle, Del., in 1730; became a lawyer in Lancaster, Pa., in 1751; was a representative in the Pennsylvania Assembly in 1768– 70, and in 1774 was elected to the first Continental Congress. He was a ready writer and a skilful committeeman. A few months after he signed the Declaration of Independence ill-health compelled him to leave Congress (January, 1777).

He died in Lancaster, Pa., in 177

Our brigade (Smith's) and two pieces of artillery marched through Strasburg on to the bights, when sharpshooters were immediately engaged; lay the whole day behind the artillery, in line, and about sundown returned and took up our old position on the ridge near the Shenandoah River.
