Most Baptist ministers follow their calling to many different congregations over time, and by all accounts the Rev. Davidson W. Ross was no exception. I looked through the Churches section of the Centennial Newspaper 1856-1956 and found him mentioned in several articles on churches in the Geary district, Zion Hill Baptist Church in Elana, Bethel Baptist on Little Left Hand, and Pleasant Hill Baptist Church at Wallback. Pleasant Hill was for a time known as Rossville Baptist Church in Rev. Ross' honor. He may have pastored other churches, too, but these are the ones I have found.

Also, Mark, what book were you referring to in purchasing? Is it family related? Rev. Ross was my Great-Great-Great Grandfather.
