The son was educated at the Pictou academy, and had charge of the grammar-school at Westmoreland, New Brunswick, for four years. After completing a course in theology he was licensed to preach in 1835, and became pastor of the congregation to which his father had ministered at Pictou. In 1842 Mr. Ross became editor of the "Presbyterian Banner." He afterward was professor of Hebrew and biblical criticism in Dalhousie college, and upon the opening of the theological seminary at West River was placed in charge of it.
