Ross County was the sixth county formed from the Northwest Territory. It was created in 1798 from the parent county of Adams, Washington. James A. Ross was a Federalist politician and a friend of governor Arthur St. Clair. The county seat of Chillicothe was once the capital of Ohio. It now houses a branch of the Ohio State University and the Chillicothe Correctional Institute for the State of Ohio. The canal era brought prosperity that compensated for the loss of the capital. Agricultural industry include: hogs, cattle, calves and feed grains. Other industries are: paper, leather, food, primary metals, rubber, aluminum ware, asphalt and vinyl floor tile, shoes and railroad springs. Early Ohio Settlers -- The first permanent white settlements were in Marietta, Gallipolis and Manchester. The people who settled here were a hardy and diverse group. They were of German, Irish, African, Scottish, English, Welsh, Dutch, Swedish, and French Huguenot ancestry. Most of these first settlers were farmers, and came from the New England area of the United States. In later years the immigrants/settlers were from Virginia, West Virginia, and Kentucky.
