Melvin Ross is the great and mysterious important character in the drama of our Morgan/Radford family history. He was married
first to Julia Elizabeth Smith Ross and a daughter from that marriage, Lovina Ross, married William Morgan, son of Thomas
Morgan. After the death of Julia Elizabeth Melvin married Mary Ellen Haddon. They lived for many years in Utah but moved eventually
to the Ririe, Idaho area to settle. The daughter, Julia Elizabeth Ross, born to this second marriage and named after the first
wife, married John William Radford.
However, it is possible the picture above is not of Melvin Ross and Mary Ellen Haddon. The picture was found in a collection
of Morgan/Radford/Ross pictures that included other pictures of Melvin Ross and the bearded man certainly looks like Melvin.
But the woman doesn't look like Mary Ellen Haddon. The woman who owns the picture collection guessed that the couple might
be Ben Hooper and Aunt Tildie. It is shown here simply for historical interest. We don't know for sure who it is, or even
who Ben Hooper is.
