Mason ROSE 1830 USA
From Don Rose
Mason was my gg grandfather. He was born about 1830 in NY
or OH. The earliest place I find him was in Cayuga Co, NY in 1850 living
with the Hezekiah BOWEN Jr. family.
I am Don Rose. I am a member of the Rose Family Association. http://ourworld.cs.com/Christine4Rose/
I was pleased, after many years of research, to find my ROSE roots through DNA
testing by the Family Tree DNA company in Houston, TX... http://www.familytreedna.com/
Through the Rose Family Association Project, http://www.familytreedna.com/surname_det.asp?group=Rose
I discovered that I am a descendant of Aeldert ROOSA who came from the
Netherlands in the 17th Century & settled in Ulster Co NY. I have yet
to find the connection to my earliest known researched ancestor, Mason ROSE.
Mason was my gg grandfather. He was born about 1830 in NY or OH. The
earliest place I find him was in Cayuga Co, NY in 1850 living with the Hezekiah
BOWEN Jr. family.
In 1855 he went to Allegan Co, MI. There he married Sibble Freeland (nee
REED) in 1859. He bought land there in 1861 on the same day as an Andrew
Jackson ROSE. The parcels adjoined & the land was purchased from
Daniel & Eliza (nee ROSE) HOWARD. Naturally, I suspect some
relationship between these 3 ROSE individuals. Census records tell me that
Andrew was bn in OH or NY in 1831. Eliza was bn in NY in 1823.
Eliza's death records state that her father was Levi ROSE & her mother's
name was Polly. Andrew's death record states that his father was R. ROSE
& mother was Polly FULLER.
Furthermore, Andrew Jackson ROSE was found living with Daniel & Eliza (ROSE)
HOWARD in the 1850 census in Calhoun Co, MI.
Mason ROSE died in the last days of the Civil War. He was survived by his
wife & their only son, Simon Mason ROSE who was born in 1862.
Andrew ROSE never married. He died a pauper in South Haven, MI in 1903.
In 1860 he was living with Joseph & Mary DOW in Allegan Co, MI. In
1880 he lived with Daniel & Hulda WARRICK in South Haven, Van Buren,
believe that one of the ROSE/ROOSA men in my line married a DOW.
I would appreciate it if any of you could help me connect Johannes ROOSA to my
Mason ROSE...or to Andrew or Eliza.
