(c. 1911 - ?)
He probably came over from Scotland with Donald Ross (D) in 1844. Donald is listed as a second tenant on the East ½ of Alexander Ross's property (Lot 13 of Concession VI in Scott Township). The 1851 Census of Canada records James' age as 40 and living in the same dwelling, as is another person whose name is not legible. Donald's brother William was recorded in both the Scottish and the Canadian Census for 1851, the year of his arrival. According to Elizabeth Haist (E3I), James Noble probably returned to Scotland.
My Grandfather (A8) notes that both returned to Scotland, and he met Jessie at Kilmuir when he travelled to Scotland upon retirement.
Their fifth of nine children:
ISABELLA ANN FRASER
RODERICK YOUNG (E3)
The Ross-ter index (E3) shows that they had eleven children, as follows:
F. DONALD FRASER
Colin also came over with some Rosses, and both he and Margaret settled in Scott Township. James, Jessie, Jane and Colin are all mentioned in correspondence between my Grandfather and Helen (Young) Halliday (E1)of Sarnia. The photograph above was kindly provided by Allan McGillivray, Curator of the Uxbridge-Scott Historical Society on December 13, 1985, in return for permission to use some of my material and sketches from Our Ross Family Story in his History of Scott Township.
