Vernal was from a farm family. He was working on a farm when he met Amy in Burely Idaho.
Amy loved horses and was good at horsemanship. She was helping the family drive a herd of horses back East to sell, when Vernal heard she had gone. He rode till he caught up with her in Peterson, Utah where he helped drive the horses to Grand Junction, Colorado. There is where he and Amy were married.
Vernal and Amy lived in approximately 28 different places in 23 years, all between Idaho, Utah, and Colorado. Because it was during the great depression, much of that time they lived with their 6 children in shacks, tents, and once in a chicken coop. Most places had no electricity or outside toilets. They bathed in a washtub. Soap was homemade with lye, lard and wood ashes.
Food was plain and simple. They kept chickens, pigs, and a cow. With no refrigeration, all meat had to be salt-cured or dried. Much of the food was wild meat, such as fish, deer or rabbit. They ate lots of homemade bread, boiled beans, and drank lots of milk. Some days the main meal was just bread and milk. Vernals favorite was buttermilk.
Once, after a delightful "rabbit" supper, Mother Amy informed the children they had just eaten Porcupine!
Vernal loved music and played almost anything, including a musical saw, a violin, and "honkey-tonk piano. On Saturday nights he played for the miners dances at Gibbonsville. One good night, he made $10.00. All in silver coins. His son Vernal VeRoss (Ross) would play the accordian and the harmonica with him.

Amy loved to start campfires. I guess you could say she was a bit of a "FireBug". Whenever the family would go camping or hunting,, the first thing that Amy would do is build a camp fire.
Amy was afraid of lighting. She had witnessed horses and cattle being killed by lighting bolts, and perosnally knew of people who had been killed with them. When electric storms got close, she would go to bed, taking the kids with her, and cover her head with the blankets to avoid the flashes.
