BY: F. W. BEERS, 1880

Volney C. Barross was born in Lynden, (Lyndon,Cattaraugus Co.) N.Y. His father, Calvin Barross, was a native of Massachusetts. He came to Genesee County, NY in 1805, settling at Bushville, where he carded the first wool and dressed the first flax on the Holland Purchase. Mr. Barross learned the clothier's trade, and worked at it till 1845, when he engaged in the milling business at Lynden. In 1855 he came to Attica, Wyoming Co.,NY, and continued the same occupation. He married ELVIRA RICHARDS, daughter of the first judge of Wyoming County, NY; she died in 1852. Mr. Barross's present wife, was ANN LOCK, daughter of William Lock, of Attica, NY.

I am not researching this family, I have no further information to provide.
