Thank you for your timely response to my query, and request for the Rose Family Bible to be included on your site.
I had visited your site once before and since it included so much material to be researched, decided to post a query instead. I think and agree with your suggestion that I’d probably get better responses if I were to post the family portion of the Bible to your site.
I received the Rose family from my Mother a few years ago and really didn’t know its value from a family history standpoint until I happened to open it and discover that many of my ancesters from the Rose side of my family was posted there. My Grandfather Clifton DeWitt Rose lived with my Family for several years and I was always a great Fan of his, so imagine my delight when I found a bit of his history in that old Bible.
Presented below is a transcript of the Rose Family Bible. I have no idea who posted all the information it contains, but I do hope someone can read it and perhaps get some use and value from the information it contains. The big puzzle for me though is trying to determine when and where Amos and Phoebe Rose were married and perhaps be able to trace their foot steps from where they left New York to where they finally settled in Iowa.
