You need to rework this one.

They had a daughter, named Rosetta "Rose E." Holton born before her mother died Sep. 29, 1871. (Logical ? Lousetta may have died in child birth) Rose m/1 Andrew Alley who was killed in February 1898 in his grocery store by a angry customer. m/2 Joseph A. Alley a brother of Andrew. She had one son by her first marriage and three by her second. (note from K - Andrew & Joseph Alley were cousins, not brothers)

In the 1880 census Rose was living with her grandmother, Holton. Rose died in Colorado
