My 4th great-grandmother was the second wife of James White who was the son of John White. I find James my 4th great-grandfather married Elizabeth Paden in Philadephia. Second he married Elizabeth Ross; they lived in Adams Co., PA in early 1800s. I am wondering if this line of Ross could be related to Elizabeth "Betsy Ross" or the SIGNER George Ross? I have always been interested in history, but this would really be something to connect to this Ross lineage.

Hello, I love the site, I've move to Florida in 1998 and I start searching more about the American History and I found you thanks to the Ghost Hunters Show. I have to tell you I've learn so much and I am so interested on learn more about the American War, the Revolution and the Civil War. It is so interesting, I love history, I am planning on going there next year with my daughter for my vacation. Once again, thank you for the virtual tour. A friend from Florida.....
Jeannette, Orlando, Florida [07-29-2010]
All of this great information should be required and taught in all of our school at an early age. I am sure that most people in the country are oblivious about our Flag and its history. God Bless our forefathers for their gifts to us. Thank you, Richard

I just finished reading American Prophet and I have became more interested in Philadelphia. I goggled the city and have found lots of places to visit. We will be going north in three weeks to celebrate our 50th anniversary in NY state, after leaving there I have decided to spend some of our time visiting your area.
Nancy, Florida [07-13-2010]
I've always been interested in the Betsy Ross story. Growing up in the Ross family in Maryland, I was told that Betsy Ross was a relative of our family. Our family lineage starts with William Ross born before 1750 in Louden County, Virginia and died about 1812/12 in Allegany County, Maryland. I guess we will never know for sure if Betsy is in fact in our Ross family lineage, but we will continue to tell our children and grandchildren the story.
Cheryl (Ross) Cuchra, Niles, Illinois [07-09-2010]
Great web site! I will pass this on to the visitors to our Living History Events at the Reagan Library! visit www.33rdfoot.org to see our venue. You should consider sending a "Betsy Ross" to sew on the flag during the Colonial Days event at the Reagan!
Mr. and Mrs. Spencer Deal [07-07-2010]
thank you for the wealth of information. our family tries to celebrate each holiday by sharing and researching what & why the special occasion. Although my older child knew what 4th of July was, who we gained independence from, she couldn't recall the number of original colonies. when i told her that's easy if you ever forget, just count the stars on the original flag. i wasn't happy she had never seen it, but off we went on our search! your site proved very informative-she is aware of betsy ross, the original colonies and so much more; not to mention it was very user friendly for my husband, myself,& our 9 & 4yr olds. thank you again, and we will be visiting soon! :)

We only visited the courtyard and shop on a flash tour thru Philadelphia in January - I regretted not being able to go into the house. Thanks for this virtual tour, it's great. Will get back there one day!

I am a descendent of George Ross, who is a brother-in-law of Betsy. Love to sew. Guess it's in the genes.

In the flag code, what does the term "pennants of societies" mean? (See Section 175 (e) and (f) ) And, is it OK for corporations like Purina, Monsanto, or Anheuser-Bush to fly a corporate flag above the US Flag?

I wrote a poem when I was in either the 4th or 5th grade. For some reason I still remember it. Maybe because my dad was so proud of me he took it to work and showed it off and a secretary sent me back a note telling me how much she liked it. I think what I felt as a 4th grader in 1966 is what I want our children today to feel. I will tell you the poem. I am sure it is simple and plain but it was heartfelt.
My Flag is red, white and blue,
My Flag is very true to you,
My Flag shows liberty, justice and Peace to the men who died for it.
For those who lived are proud indeed,
and show it with lots of heed.
I hope you liked it! Now I am in my 50's and I just wish we could go back to an America we were proud of. As best I can remember I wrote it but I do (forwhatever) reason have a great memory. (obviously since I remember it!) and hope that I didn't see it somewhere. In any case, that is how I feel about our Flag.
debbie, bakersfield [06-04-2010]
I loved the virtual tour! I've never been to Philadelphia, but hopefully next year that will change!Since my birthday is Flag Day, makes it even more interesting to me.

When I was 8 years old (l944) I took to my third grade class a proclamation which my family received from Calvin Coolidge (1927) because someone in my ancestry heled Betsy Ross sew the flag. This proclamation was destroyed years later so I have no idea who this ancestor might be. Is there any information as to who helped Betsy Ross? If I had the names I might be able to search them for clues to my own family.

At a veterans Masonic funeral ceremony (cremation) when a Flag is placed on a podium, can a small Masonic Apron (18"X20") be placed on top of the Flag (it just covers a small portion of the Flag) in tribute to a deceased Brother's Masonic affiliation? Also, can the deceased's remains in a vase container be placed on top of the Flag?

Thank you for this site. It was very helpful. I found a flag on the ground today and no one else cared enough to pick it up, which made me very sad. I didn't know what to do with it, so I looked it up. From what I gather, it is ok for me to clean it and keep it. If I am wrong about this, I would greatly appreciate being corrected. Thank you for your help!

Really enjoyed reading the information on Betsy Ross. Some I remembered from my own school days and some I didn't know at all. Thank you for sharing this information with us.
Jan Lawrence, Buena Park, CA 90620 [03-17-2010]
My mother was Marjorie Delight Ross, a decendent of the same Ross family Betsy married into. She and my grandmother could both make the 5 point star, and sewing was a hobby she really enjoyed. She aspired to be a clothing designer, was actually very good at it, but her ability and interest in chemistry and math, led her to be a teacher of both in high school. She was born in Weir, KS. She lived in Texas where I was born, but returned to Chanute, KS. She was a teacher at the high school until she died of a brain tumor in 1974. She had a younger brother John David, who served in the Navy during WWII as an aircraft mechanic, and two sisters, Gracie and Roberta. There is also a link to John Ross, Chief of the Cherokee Nation, my grandmother was ashamed of this, and destroyed letters that established this, I am currently trying to establish the link between Betsy's marriage to John Ross, who I believe is a relative to the John Ross of the Cherokee Nation.
Timothy Ecord, Joshua, TX [03-16-2010]
I love Mrs. Ross and all that she has done to mark the United States. My mom is helping me do a biography on her and we cannot stop looking at different websites on Mrs. Ross. It is just so amazing what she accomplished in her life.

I remember back in 1963 when the flag my our school had to be retired due to age. The entire school was sent out side to the flag pole for the ceremony. The flag was lowered and the new one was raised. The old flag was saluted and burned with taps being played. Where did this education go? We were taught the values and respect that existed when the first flag was made. To this day, I remember this and that moment will never leave my memory. Art Http://www.discountmydragons.com

I will be attending an all-women potluck supper this evening and each of us has been asked to select a historic American woman and share information about her. Because I raised my children in a suburb of Philadelphia during the 60s and 70s, I chose Betsy Ross, and from this website I have learned much more than I ever learned in school about this colonial seamstress. Thanks!

i thought i remembered a lot of flag information from civics in high school and from being in the military but i learned a ton from reading this. I do have a question though. We would like to erect a flagpole in our front yard and thought we would fly the state flag of each member of the family also. This would be easy except our oldest child was born while we were stationed in Greece. What would be the protocol? Thanks much

Betsy Ross is the greatest American hero of all time! Not only did she design the single most majestic, awe-inspiring flag of all time - she was also the face that famously launched a thousand ships! God bless America!

I have no clue what this is for but i felt like signing it![=
Your Q&A section says there is nothing law enforcement can do to punish violations of the flag code. I think that statement should be amended to indicate that depends on the locality. Some localities do have legal penalties for flag code violations.

While preparing for my grandson's Cub Scout den meeting covering Wolf Achievement 2, "Your Flag", I ran across your website. I'm extremly glad I did. It reminded me of many things I had forgotten and some things I had never known. Great site - "let us not forget".

I'm doing a project on Betsy Ross, and this site gave me all the info I needed! It's amazing!

I am working on a homework assignment about Betsy Ross. I did not know much about her, and what she did, and what she stands for. I was very much impressed with this website. Thank you for making it available to students like me.

I have always admired Betsy Ross. She was a woman that helped get women noticed for more than just someone's wife or mother. She opened eyes and doors; she made it possible for the women that came after her to fight for women's rights. I am so glad to find a website that helps me teach my daughter about Betsy and helps me explain my admiration for her.
