ROSS, David, congressman, born in Maryland about 17,50. He was a delegate from that state to the Continental congress in 1786-'7. On 11 May, 1787, he voted on the motion to amend the article passed on 29 August, 1786, making it read "that the proceedings of congress do not authorize the secretary of the United States for the department of foreign affairs to enter into any stipulation with the minister of his Catholick majesty." He also voted on 27 September, 1787, to offer a resolution of thanks to John Adams for his service as minister to England, and on 13 October, 1787, voted for Mr. Pierce Butler's motion that it was the desire of congress to entertain the friendship existing between the United States and his "Catholick maesty."
