Rosa Ross Student Information Card

Student information card of Rosa Ross, a member of the Creek Nation, who entered the school on January 22, 1881 and departed on July 3, 1883.

Note: Although she is identified as being from the Cherokee Nation, Ross entered the school with a group of Creek students and is identified elsewhere as Creek. Therefore we believe the identification of her as Cherokee is probably a mistake.
