John Ross was the grandson of John McDonald and the son of Daniel Ross natives of Scotland and partners in a trading post established at Ross's Landing. He dedicated himself to the education of the Cherokee Nation. JOHN ROSS is called the greatest of the Cherokee chiefs, although only one-eighth Cherokee. He served as principal chief from 1828-1866.

He fought against the removal of the Cherokees from this region, ultimately leading them on the Trail of Tears journey to Oklahoma in 1838.
