“I Am Because We Are”
Honoring the Past – Impacting the Present – Shaping the Future
July 11, 2008 Dear Family,
Welcome to the 2008 Ross Family Reunion! We hope that everyone will enjoy a fun-filled weekend of re-connecting as well as meeting new loved ones for the first time. During this weekend we invite you to relax and make yourself at home at the Historic Oberlin Inn. In the following pages, you will find a complete itinerary for all planned events. Please enjoy our hospitality suite located in the Tappan room on the third floor. The Reunion Committee appreciates the support of all Ohio Ross Family members who helped make this reunion possible. We have also been fortunate to have input and participation from many relatives located outside of Ohio. During the planning process, we have seen our theme in action, “I Am Because We Are” Our connectedness has made this a true labor of love. We hope that everyone will leave the reunion with a greater sense of the depth of the Ross legacy; we all stand on the great shoulders of Charley and Elizabeth Ross. May they be ever proud of all that we are.
Blessings to each of you!

Understanding Our Theme
“I Am Because We Are”
Honoring the Past – Impacting the Present – Shaping the Future
I Am Because We Are (Ubuntu) is an African philosophy that focuses on people’s allegiances and relations with each other. We really cannot separate ourselves from each other. We cannot see our actions as separate from the impact on each other. God designed it this way - we can see this in God’s promise to Abraham “ I will make you a great nation; I will bless you and make your name great; and you shall be a blessing. I will bless those who bless you, and I will curse him who curses you; and in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed.” We must understand that no person is an island and God wants us to “get” this and to take action on it. It’s built right into the fabric of this world and in the fabric of the Ross family. Through conversations with our Elders, we hear about the determination of Charley Ross to be a land owner and thereby, leave an inheritance for his children. This inheritance goes far beyond land. Each of us has inherited a love of God and family, determination to fulfill our destinies and thereby shape future generations of Ross families.

When taking the pilgrimage from Ohio to Mississippi, most of us looked forward to that first taste of Mississippi catfish! We often heard stories about the catfish houses and were even fortunate to taste crispy fried catfish in the homes of our Elders from Mississippi. Emmett and Hallie were known to fry up catfish and serve it to the family, hot out of the skillet. On a trip to Mississippi, with her father, Laurence and her sister Windy, Lori Ross was fascinated by the love of catfish evidenced all throughout her stay. Upon hearing her poem at the 2007 reunion, we knew that we had to have “Catfish Time” this year.
Did You Know? Catfish seem to be a popular school, from farm raised to wild and free. The only place this fresh water species shuns is Antarctica. Maybe the cold drives them away? Contrary to all the cartoons you’ve seen as a child, Catfish do not have fur. In fact, as of 2005, all 37 families are scale-less as well. The, over 2,000 known species are named for the “whiskers" (a.k.a. “barbells") around their mouths. Catfish have become such a symbol of American summertime fun and fisherman’s tall tales that President Reagan declared June 25th as National Catfish Day. This proclamation was made in 1987 and has been revered at campfire celebrations ever since. There is not a lake or fishing hole in the United States that does not have some sort of legend about “the oldest, biggest catfish that has ever lived swimming in these waters." Catfish can range in size from the tiniest parasite, known to enter the urinary tract of an unsuspecting wader, to a record 646 pounds caught in Northern Thailand. Researchers speculate that these vast fish can get a lot bigger, as many species live in developing countries where they have not been studied thoroughly. (searchwarp.com)
We hope that you enjoy the catfish and enjoy Lori’s poem!
By Lori Ross
Remember when we drove so far just us three in a big black car. And as the road stretched far and wide, the car seat leather stuck to our hides. We wanted to smell that Mississippi air So, why were we at the Kentucky Fair? The cop at the gate said take I-75 So, we turned around and were ready to ride. So, I said to Windy, “you take the wheel” but by a Demon Driver her spot was filled. But me and Pops, we played it cool. And at the restaurant checked our pants for stool We made it safe enough: never fear. The sun was hot and the skies were clear. But no, my story is not done the adventure has just begun. Oh, we took a trip to Piney Woods where the history was great, the grounds were wood. But, oh those pigs did not smell good. Then into Ross Town we did venture these people eat catfish for lunch and dinner. It was a sight to see Uncle Willie‟s farm and Mom‟s and Pop‟s Old Almamater then we bounced on down to Biloxi beach where the sand was so white, I thought I‟d been bleached. Our adventure was starting to come to an end. We were all kind of sad „cause we made a few friends. But we hitched our ride and loaded our sacks kissed all good-bye and traveled back. We made it back in record time where the wind is cool and the sun is not so kind. So all in all, it was a great vacation traveling over some of this nation. But I gotta go, yeah I gotta run, just had to tell you bout all that fun Yeah,Pops is the guy, oh he‟s the man the number one honcho of the catfish clan!
Shaping the Future through Continual Learning
Saturday, July 12, 2008 ~ 4:00-6:00 Tappan Room
We are delighted to have Dr. Charles Sutton join us to open our panel discussion. The idea for this forum was conceived at last year’s reunion by our very own Ph.D candidate, Claude (PeeWee) Weathersby. The objective is to explore the hopes, dreams and ideas that served as the impetus for the Ross family migration to Ohio and other points North. The Ross family migration is directly linked to the overall migration that occurred at the beginning of the 1900’s. We will also talk with a few family members who will inspire us through their efforts to break down barriers and obstacles to realize the hopes and aspirations of those who went before us. We invite you to join the discussion and share your insights as we lift and encourage one another through our shared experiences.

The descendants of Charley and Lizzie now extend to seven recorded generations.
Past Family Reunions
We would like to extend a very special thank-you to Linda Stewart for taking the initiative to develop our Tribal Pages family web site. For the past two years, Linda has painstakingly sought family history information and updated current information to ensure a wide net of inclusion. Considering how our family is dispersed all over the country, this has been no small fete. Linda has used personal funds to establish and renew the annual web site costs. She quietly does this out of a sincere love for her family – for those she knows, for others that she has only heard about and for all of the family that she may never see, yet she already loves them.
Linda truly lives her motto: Love is as Love Does! The entire Ross family thanks Linda for her demonstrated love and devotion to honoring the great legacy of Charley and Elizabeth Ross.
