“Complaint had been received at the [Cincinnati Auto] Club headquarters that motorists had been molested by the county police on the road to Ross, Ky.  County Attorney Roger L. Neff said that he held a receipt issued by the constable to a Silver Grove man, who paid the officer $4.50 as alleged costs of court.” from Motour, August 1930.
“The name of Indian Springs was changed some years ago to the unromantic name of Ross, to which we understand quite a number of the residents of the vicinity objected.”Kentucky State Journal, January 24, 1889 Campbell  Co Rootsweb has some nice info on Ross, here.
