Claude Buren Ross
Buren Ross was the first child of Brewster and Mattie Ross. He married Mary Thelma Tatum on April 18, 1936 and had two children, Thelma Jean Ross who married Thomas Calvin Matthews and Paul Buren Ross who married Patricia "Pat" Clay. Buren was a "pioneer" in antique furniture, particularly in walnut furniture, as he could look at an old piece of furniture, tell you what kind of wood it was and could see the vision of a beautifully finished piece. He was known from one end of the county to the other, as he worked for Cash Produce Company and sold to stores across the local counties including Rockingham County, North Carolina. Buren loved to tell stories of the people and families whom he had met, and people today still remember him as a kind hearted and interesting person.
