Brewster Ross Home at Buffalo Ridge
The fourth child of D. Lee and Bettie Ross was Charles Brewster Ross who was born July 4, 1875. Brewster married Martha Elizabeth 'Mattie' McKenzie on February 23, 1901 and they had seven children. Brewster owned and operated a general store that he eventually sold to his brother-in-law, I.M. Akers, and it is still standing today. He then operated a stave mill and later carried mail in Patrick County. Brewster built a home for his family at Buffalo Ridge in Patrick County, and later moved his family to Martinsville in 1931 where they lived on Oakdale Street.
