  • Notes 
    • David was a sergeant in the Revolutionary War. He almost always referred to himself as David Ross 4th, perhaps to differentiate from the three other Davids of his generation who lived in the area. He was executor in 1759 of the will of Richard Miller and may have been the David Ross, grandson, named in the will. His first wife, Hannah, was a granddaughter of Richard Miller. David was a cooper and bellmaker of some repute. His record book is at the New Jersey Historical Society in Newark. He was also a sheriff and high constable of Essex county. His will was dated 18 November 1796, and proved 23 November 1796. It names only his son John and daughter Hannah S. Ross. It mentions other children but not by name. His son-in-law James Winans was an executor.
