George ROSE 
born November 26, 1799 in Shawangunk, Ulster Co., N.y

This is my George Rose of New York and Ohio.  He appears to have been descended from Dutch ancestors named "Roosa".  I suspect that the George Rose line I am sending and the William Rose line  supplied by Anita Pugh might be connected somehow.

Obit

George Rose departed this life, at the residence of his daughter, Mrs. Elizabeth Morton, in Cambridge, Ohio, on the morning of Friday, February 13, 1880. He was born in Orange county, New York, November 26, 1799, his life measuring a little more than four score years. In the year 1822 he was joined in matrimony with Miss Nancy Fordyce, daughter of Rev. John Fordyce, of Green county, Pa., and the fruit of their union was twelve children, three sons and nine daughters, all of whomgrew up to be men and women, and were married. Ten of these children live to bless the memory of the parents who brought them up "in the nurture and admonition of the Lord." Mrs. Rose died on the 21st of February, 1872, at the age of 67 years, and was buried at Cardington, Ohio. In the year 1824 he removed to Guernsey county, Ohio, and settled near Claysville, and afterward at Senecaville, at which places he engaged in merchandising, and acquired the reputation of an active, upright business man. About the year 1853 he removed from Guernsey county to Fredericktown, Knox county, and subsequently to Cardington, Morrow county, Ohio. For the past few years his home has been with is daughter in Cambridge. For more than half a century he has held an unbroken membership in the Methodist E. Church, uniting with that body at Waller's appointment, near Claysville, about the year 1828, under the ministry of Joseph Carper. He has been characterized by a firm devotion to the doctrines and ordinances of Christianity, and faith and trust in the Lord Jesus Christ. During his last sickness his suffering, from cancer of the head, was most intense, yet he bore it with the patience and submission of a Christian. He was constantly happy in Him in whom he believed, and rejoiced in the hope of the glory that awaited him beyond "the valley of the shadow of death." So lived and died a good citizen, an affectionate husband, father, and a faithful member of the church. His bereaved children consign his remains to the peaceful quiet of the grave, by the side of one, who for fifty years, was the companion of his life and the sharer of his joys and sorrows, in hope of a happy reunion with their loved ones at the resurrection of the just.

"Servant of God, well done;

Thy gloriuos warfare's past;

The battle's fought, the race is won,

And thou art crowned at last."

Funeral service held at the home of his daughter, Mrs. Elizabeth Morton, conducted by Rev. E. Hingeley and Rev. J. H. Hollingshead, and a sermon preached by Rev. R. McCaskey. Newspaper obituary, date and source unknown (Cambridge, OH) 2003, Jim Fordyce * note funeral card(I have copy) has services were held at the M.E. Church in Cardington at 2 pm Feb 15.

Before moving to Cardington, the Rose family lived for a few years east of New Concord, OH, so that the older children might attend Muskinghum College. J. Benson Rose, 6/13/2003, Mather website. (courtesy Benson Rose) Family Record of George and Nancy lists marriage date as Nov 26, 1822.

THE TOWNSHIP. see http://www.heritagepursuit.com/Morrow/MorChVII.htm

"About this time, or perhaps a little subsequent, several men of means and prominence, of the Methodist faith, bought property and moved to Cardington. Among them were John Shur, and George Rose and their families, with some others, and from this time the Methodist Episcopal Church became a power in the place. A protracted meeting followed the dedication, resulting in a number of conversions, and additions to the church. From this time, it may be said with propriety that the Methodist Episcopal Church became the leading denomination of Cardington"

In 1880, we see Alexander's second family listed. There are 7 children listed, all under the age of 19. However, none of these children appear on the 1870 census. Assuming Jane had all these children, two of whom were born after Jane turned 42, then did they send them to stay elsewhere in 1870? I can't find them anywhere in the ancestry index for 1870. Or were these the children of one of Alexander's brothers or cousins that were orphaned, perhaps?
