All Ross Jones

I’ve always liked my name. A little unique although I’ve run into a nice handful of other Rosses out there. But almost never a Ross Jones.

When we moved to Nashville in 1994, we started getting phone calls for a local High School coach also named Ross Jones. Guess I was had a better ranking in the phone book. Anyway, I’ve been getting more curious about just how many people withe the Ross Jones name are out there. So I’ve put together a compilation of all the references to Ross Jones that I can find on the web. There’s quite a bit more than I imagined.

Here they are:

Ross GeoScience Jones
http://www.albany.edu/geosciences/frjonesa.html
Applying for a Master of Sciences degree in geosciences, Ross Jones wrote a thesis presented to the faculty at New York University at Albany about the structural geology of the northern Galice Formation, western Klamath Mountains in Oregon and California. “Fundamental conclusions obtained in this study are:
1) The Galice Formation is tightly folded on both outcrop and regional scales.
2) There is a north-to-south increase in Nevadan regional metamorphic grade and penetrative strain. This gradient may reflect a small southward component of underthrusting along the Orleans fault.
3) Nevadan vergence from folds and thrusts in the Galice is dominantly northwestward.
4) Most Nevadan thrusting in the Galice took place after the main-phase penetrative deformation and peak metamorphism. This ductile-to-brittle transition may have resulted from continued underthrusting during regional uplift.”

    Ross,

    Really strange that I found you while googling our common name. When looking into your site I found we have a similar immediate family make up. I am married and have a son named Trent born on June 2nd 1995. I also have 2 daughters, Audrey and Brooke. I live in the Houston area and work for Airgas in an exectutive position. How often does something like this occur? You’re correct about are name. Not many Ross Jones’ out there. I just happen to have a middle name that is considered a last name too “Carter” which helps to keep us seperated. I hope all is well with your family and that these economic times haven’t hit to hard.

  2. Ross Jones says:

    Funny the things you find when you google your own name.

I also sang in an orchestra called The Mustangs in the 60’s, after became a Canadian National Harbour Board Cop. I am now retired. It’s awesome to see i’m not alone.

  7. Ross Jones says:

    What a great website, I’ve also always liked your name, I mean my name, well our name…I have often received many compliments about charm and simplicity of my name. I am originally from Cardiff, Wales, but have lived in many places including France, some time Russia and now Switzerland and soon to be India! And no I’m not a spy.

    Also when in Russia I met the female Russia equivalent of “Ross Jones”, the name is “Katja Sokol” ….Sokol means Falcon, and in Russian it has the same charismatic content as Ross Jones does in English!

    So hello out there to all the Ross Joneses and Katja Sokols in the world.

    I was in Nashville Tennessee 5 years ago, if any of you guys and gals (one never knows there might well be a female Ross Jones out there somewhere!) happen to visit Switzerland or India, just let me know.

    Bye Ross Jones

    I am looking for a Ross Jones who was the youngest of three daughters born to a pathologist in Anderson, SC—-Dr. Robert Jones. She had two older sisters Paige and Allison. I was their babysitter back in 1968-69. Maybe this will circulate the “Ross Jones” network and I can locate her and maybe her sisters. If the real Ross jones wants to get in touch, send me a friend request on Facebook to Virginia Bledsoe Davis. <3

    Hello all the Ross Joneses. Another one here. Originally from Cardiff (like an earlier Ross Jones) and now based near Chester, UK. I’m fluctuating between despondent (that my name is so widely used) and bemused by how awesome it all is.

    We should have a conference or something 😉

    Ross.
