Biographical / Historical
Born in Missouri in 1882, Aubrey was the only son born to J.T. and Josie E. Ross. In the early 1900s, Aubrey moved to New York and married Laura Lutte Hurd. Aubrey and Laura had four children, J.T., Mary Louise, John, and Betsy. J.T., also called Tom or Tommy, married Barbara (last name unknown) and had one daughter, Deborah. Betsy married Joe Schultz, but it is not known if they had any children. Mary Louise married Ralph Henrich and had three children, Tommy, Betsy, and Johnny. The letters do not provide any information on whether or not John married, but in the 1940s he and Aubrey lived and worked together through the Y.M.C.A. in Missouri.
J.T. (who died sometime in early 1937) and Josie E. Ross also had two daugthers, Winnie and Ruby. Winnie married Joe Davidson and had one daughter named Joannah. Joannah married Merle (last name unknown) and had at least two children, J.T. and Bobby D. Ruby married Ernest Carnahan and had two children, Ernestine (who died young in 1927 or 1928) and Ross.
Unfortunately the letters do not provide any details regarding birthdays, anniversaries, or deaths, so exact dates can not be determined at this time.
