Aldis D. Ross

Rutland Daily Herald, April 1, 1905:

Aldis DeLuce Ross, a prominent business man of this city, died suddenly about 3 o'clock yesterday morning at his home, No. 55 Prospect street. Mr. Ross had been ill about a week with neuralgia of the heart, and death came soon after taking some medicine. Mrs. Ross at once summoned a physician, who worked over the body for some time, but life could not be restored. Mr. Ross was the son of Walter and Eliza W. Ross, and was born in Clarendon, February 18, 1843. He served in the civil war with company K, 12th Vermont regiment, being mustered in October 4, 1862 and mustered out July 14, 1863, the regiment coming home directly after the battle of Gettysburg. Company K was made up of the old Rutland light guards. Mr. Ross was a member of Roberts post, Grand Army of the Republic, and also was a member of the Congregational church. In October, 1884, he removed to this city, where he became connected with the dry goods business, with which he has since been associated.

In 1886 he was married to Miss Emma Parker Tenbroeck of Albany, who survives him. He also leaves three brothers, James W. of Fulton, Ill., John W. of this city, and George W. of Vergennes.

The funeral, which will be private, will be held at his late home tomorrow afternoon at 5 o'clock. Rev. Dr. George W. Phillips will officiate. The body will be taken to Albany, N.Y., on the 10.25 o'clock train Monday morning for burial. [note: Obviously there was a change of plans, because he is buried at Evergreen Cemetery in Rutland]
