Memorable Manitobans: Richard Rose Ross (1843-1904)

Cleric, farmer, municipal official.

Born in Ontario on 23 April 1843, he arrived in western Manitoba in 1879 and was one of the earliest settlers in the Rossburn area, which was named for him. He served as Reeve of the Rural Municipality of Rossburn from 1898 to 1900, and again in 1904. One of his daughters married D. G. Nield. He died at Rossburn on 4 December 1904.
