Bio and Links
Bio Photo I was born in Utah.

I served in the US Navy for 4 years as a Sonarman during the Vietnam War.

I worked civil service for the Air Force, retiring after 42 years.

I work part time for Napa Auto Parts.

I love to do Genealogy research, which has brought me to Find A Grave. I like to help out in my spare time, and give something back.

Besides "Ross", my extended family include the names of Ferry, McCracken, Cowger, Bovell, Stafford, Stokesberry, and Drenner on my father's side. Miller, Rees, Saunders, Vaughn, Hill, Merrel/Merrill, Phillips, and Williams on my mother's side to name a few.

For all requests for transfers, corrections, and additions please use the edit tab on the memorial.
Thank you, Richard

My teacher for kindergarten and first grade

I am a grand-niece of Colby wiggins and I'm wondering a couple of things.

How did you determine who his siblings and parents were?
Do you have any advice for locating web searches for Railroad records?

I have done research for our branch of the Wiggins family and, because he left the state of Texas under mysterious circumstances, there is not much info available.

I think she is on that headstone.
The plots are adjacent.
You can add that photo to her memorial.

Richard, thank you so much for your information on how to take care of a memorial. I will get to working on adding my father's information since he is not on here. I just need to find a photo of his headstone. He is buried in California. Anyway, All your contributions are welcomed and appreciated. I only hope I can do a small portion of what you have done.

Hey Richard,
I finally got around to writing an obit for my eldest brother. I think this has been churning in my brain my entire lifetime. And my twin brother and I only knows this story. Feels good to finally have this done.
