David A. Pierpont
Assisted his father in the business of cabinet-making, etc. In company with James Henry, he began merchandising [ca 1835]. After two years Henry disposed of his interest to Hon. Robert L. Rose, now of Hagerstown, MD who conducted the business with Mr. P. until the latter retired.

I haven't found Robert Rose in 1850, although I'm sure he was there - perhaps he was away in Congress. I'm sure there were other children.

15 Oct 1849. Robert L. Rose presented the will of his brother-in-law Nathaniel O. Allen for probate. Nathaniel had died in 1839 and the only remaining heir was his brother Orrin N. Allen, living in Virginia. In 1839, Nathaniel had instructed that $150 be used to buy a gold watch for his sister Almira; after other bequests, the remainder was to be divided in thirds, between his brothers Augustus, Orrin and his sister Almira. Nathaniel had also given his own gold watch to his nephew, Nathaniel Allen Rose - presumably the boy had also died prior to 1849.

In 1851, O. Turner stated that the Hon. R. L. Rose was living in the homestead of the Allen family on Allen's Hill. [The above deed of sale from Nathaniel Allen is evidence of this fact.] He was also the present Representative in Congress from Ontario Co.

I believe Robert remarried after the death of Almira.
