I am looking for a copy of the Hazel Green Herald from the day of April 6, 1887. In this paper is the article talking about the murder of James Ross. This was my great-grandfather. Would really like to have full copy of the article. Only have partial one right now. Please respond if you can help in any way.

Thanks,
Amy Ross

Hi Amy,

James is my great-great-grandfather! I have the front page from that day and would be happy to send it you...although since your post is 10 years old, you likely have found it by now. :)


His son James H J Ross, married Orlena Hampton. Their daughter, Elizabeth `Lizzie' Ross is my maternal grand mother.

Let's exchange information...because I really need some help with this `branch'. LOL!

This is really weird. I was just googling this again and found your post. I would still be interested in getting a copy of the paper and i can fill you in on my branch of the family.

Hi Amy,

Well, a lot has transpired since my last post. I discovered that I had the wrong James Ross (and family) associated to my lineage. My James Ross was from Laurel and Rockcastle Counties, not Wolfe, but I'm happy to attach the article for you.

Happy Holidays
