Ross cemetery is located between Bronte and Blackwell Texas. It is a small cemetery but is still cared for somewhat. This falls with in
Runnels County of which Ballinger is the county seat. It is located close to the Texanna Ranch. It was raining the day I stopped to
transcribe the tombstones, I have tried to be as accurate with the spelling as possible. The following is a list of names taken from
the tombstones. There were plainly more graves, but they did not have any markers.
