 Thank you to all the replied.

I found the problem..I had users in the "admin" group

If a user is in "admin users", that means that samba will perform all
operations for that user using the account "root".

Does any one know how to setup samba so that when a user from a Windows
box writes to a samba share the username is kept in tact, or if it is
possible.  I have been through all the options I can think of and it
keeps defaulting to owner "root" on the unix file system.  I appreciate
any advise.
