I have seen many records that Elizabeth McBee married a Ross and that they had a son named Rice Farrar Ross. The following may be of interest to you. I found a record in Coffee County TN regarding a Rice F Ross born 1757, died 1819. This would not be the son of Elizabeth McBee but could well be the husband and the father of Rice Farrar Ross.

Rice F Ross was born 5 Dec 1757, unsure of birthplace, died 20 March 1819. Died in Coffee County TN, buried in Ragsdale Cemetery.

Rice Farrar Ross born 3 DEC 1776 NC or SC, died 8 APRIL 1856 in Rome, Floyd County, GA on the way to visit his son Absalom Ross.. This Rice Ross married Sarah A Bonham, born 5 OCT 1789, died 29 MAY 1849, Coffee County, buried in Ragsdale Cemetery. Rice Farrar Ross lived in Coffee County TN prior to his death.

It only makes sense that the first Rice F Ross was Rice Farrar Ross' father. Wife, possibly Elizabeth McBee? I do not have dates on her. I would love to hear from anyone with info on these people.
