I couldn't find the family in 1920 or 1930 either no matter how I looked for them. I did find the WWI draft card for William Charles Ross of Leechburg, born April 18, 1880, wife Verna. The 1910 census has her name as Verna as well. They were married ca 1907 and are listed next to Henry and Sadie Ross. A Sadie was sometimes called Sarah, but a Sarah wasn't usually also known as Sadie.

The 1900 census of Armstrong County has Henry and Sarrah Ross with a son Charles born in April 1880.

Here is probably where the bunch are buried: http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gsr&GSiman=1&GScid=44776&GSfn=&GSln=ross

I suggest getting Dorothy's death certificate and birth certificate to make sure of who her parents were. Once you confirm who her parents then move onto getting their death certificates and obituaries and then their parents'.

More than likely Charles and Verna got their marriage license at the Armstrong County Register of Wills Office. It would confirm her maiden name and may have data on their parents.

Try the Armstrong County Historical Museum and Genealogical Society and the Leechburg Area Museum and Historical Society to see if they can help you.
