William Ross

From England;  a tailor.  In the on-line index to 1860 federal census William's surname has been incorrectly transcribed as "Ras," but on careful examination of the original document the name is actually "Rofs."  In nineteenth century cursive writing the "long s" looks like a cursive "f."  After William arrived in Utah he sometimes used the name William Ross Bollin.
