Mr. Postman

One of the Ennis Post Offices earliest known mail carriers was Ambrose (“A.B.”) Ross. Borne in Tennessee in 1864 he moved to Ennis in 1891. According to the Ennis Weekly Local, Ross served as a teacher in Alma and Palmer before accepting employment by the U.S. Mail Service at Ennis in 1906 as one of the facility’s very first carriers. Ross remained with the Ennis Post Office for 27 years, retiring in 1933. He died in 1941 at age 77, survived by his wife of 46 years, the former Pattie Bomer of Kaufman, and their nine children.
