True Grit- The Ross Family

I recently discovered that Mattie Ross (of the movie True Grit with John Wayne) was my grandfather's grandfather's sister. She's the young girl that went into Indian Territory to avenge her father's death. Very interesting. They're from Yell County, AR. I'm doing what I can to gather more information about this.

If there's anyone with more information and willing to share, please email me at nkiblueeyes@yahoo.com.
