Eva, California, United States [12-15-2002]

As Past Commander of our local AMVETS club my project for my year as Commander was presenting flag ceremonies at our schools with the help of 4 members of our Honor Guard. I read the narrative that goes with the flag folding. I was very proud of this project & it was well recieved. Many of the teachers at the schools we visited did not know about the meaning of the folds of our flag. We include in our program a short story of Betsy Ross & how she came to make the flag. I still help with these programs & we have included some of the local nursing homes as well.
Mike Fisher, Bismarck, North Dakota [12-15-2002]

My fifth grade class is doing a project called "The Wax Musium". We all had to pick a character to become and I chose Betsy Ross. I have had a lot of fun on this project. This has been a great experience for me. I hope to come and visit The Betsy Ross house sometime with my family.

The reason I pulled up Betsy Ross is because my daughters school is having a patriot play. She is staring as Betsy Ross. I needed to see what she looked like. Thank you and have a Merry Christmas.
Sally Howell, Summerville, SC [12-14-2002]

According to family legend, I am a decendent of Betsy Ross. I want to verify this by obtaining the names of as many sons and daughters of Betsy Ross that I can. (Unfortunately, I understand that she was married 5 times!) My great-grandmother, Agatha Greacen (1869-1958)is apparently the link. Do you have any archival material that I can obtain or can you tell me where I can find any information?

i think betsy ross is real cool because she was the first person to make the american flag!
LAURA, florida [12-07-2002]

Interesting piece of history, not only for the U.S. but for those of us in the 'Ross' clan. It is nice to know that Betsy "did" sew the first flag, most of us don't care if she designed it. We here at Clan Ross Assoc. of the US (CRAUS) attempt to teach others of our Scottish heratige as well as our American history. Go to any of the Scottish gatherings here in the US and you will find it so. We often (at the Ross tent) give pictures to be colored to the children that visit. I am going to take you at your word, copy this b/w outlind on the website for those children. Appropriatly, your web site and recognition will be on each page. If you have other pictures of the 'Betsy', in color, I would appreciate the permission to copy for display only. I especially like the waving flag in the faded backgroundof this page of your web site. We are the only clan that flies the 'Betsy' and are very proud to do so. I fly it here at my home on special occasions, alternating with the 'Old Glory' on other days. I live on a hillside and the flying flag can be seen for several blocks away. Your web site will now go through all of the 2000 members of Clan Ross of US. A lot of time an imagination has gone into this site. Thank you so very much!

Daniel Ross, Dublin, CA [12-07-2002]

I belong the Scottish Clan Ross... I have dressed as Betsy and carred her flag in parades... especially athe the Scottish Highland Games... Some people like to say they are a descent of Betsy.... but, she did not have any children with John Ross her you know...she remarried after his death...and did have children...but, they did not have the Ross last name ....she was a Ross by marrage....Ross was not her maiden name.....nice site.... if you want more information regarding the Clan Ross Association of the U.S., please contact me... Yours Aye, Barbra

I'm doing a book report on Betsy Ross. I needed to find out when her birthday was. When I came to this page, I took a "virtual"tour of her house. I thought that it wasn't going to have her birthday. Then once I went through a couple of parts of her house, there it was, her birthday! So now I won't get a bad grade on my book report. So thats my story of why I visited you. I mainly just wanted to tell you that your page saved me and that I really,really,really,really,really,really,really like your page about Betsy Ross. Thank you for having that information for me.

My Mother told me stories about her grandmother who had a plaque stating that she was a member of the Besty Ross society and that we were descendants. I have no idea if this is true, but, would like to find out. The family members in that area I have are from NJ and the surnames are: Parker, Gould, Masker (Massacre), Stinson. Any help or leads would be appreciated. Any books on Eliz. Griscom descendants ? Thanks! -- John

I think that the Us is the best nation in the world to live in. We have many rights. We are a great, proud, and strong nation with many brave and strong men who are willing to serve and lose their lives for our great nation. Our hearts might have been saddened on September 11, 2001, and our nation might have been slightly effected but no one will ever be able to demolish it. With God in our hearts, he will always be with us and aid us through any situation. I am proud to be an American along with many others. We celebrated Vetrans Day last week and it has never really meant that much to me before because I didn't really understand its meaning, because I had never before been alive when a war has taken place but now I have a much greater appricition and understanding of what it all really means. GOD BLESS the USA!!!

I think it is very good that ya'll have a homepage for one of historys most famous women.In history all we hear about are MEN,MEN,MEN but now finally we know that women were there TOO! Its great the people have devoted their time and work into showing us that. ~ By: Samantha
Samantha, Ramer,Tennesse [11-18-2002]

I think America is a good nation . September 11,2001 was a tragic day . Hundreds of innocent people lost there lives and love one in september 11,2001. From then on I knew what our country did for us.

Jessica Tata, Lima Oh [11-13-2002]

I believe that each child in our school system should have to learn the Flag-folding ceremony. Children today do not get the education that was once taught. Therefore, they do not understand the true meaning of what this country was founded on. To have this knowledge is to understand ones self ... It is beautiful beyond words.
Rita C. Fauls, Melbourne, Florida [11-13-2002]

hey betsy ross the flag was very beaitiful bye bye

Betsy Conner, Chesapeke,va usa [11-03-2002]

Betsy Ross is a true American. I drew attached to her amazing story when I was told to research on her for a school project. Growing up with 17 brothers and sisters must be tough, but Betsy got through it. She also got through becoming a widow three times and taking care of four children all alone. Betsy is a role model to me, she has shown girl power all during her life. GO BETSY ROSS!
