Actually I have 2 Roses who went to Kansas c1870,
Joseph B. Rose b. 1827 t/o Rockland, Sullivan County and his wife Sophie Borden;
and Harriet Rose Crippen, wife of John Crippen, niece of Joseph Rose, and d/o Lawrence
Rose and Lucy Moody.
Our first Rose is John bc 1771 who I believe was born in eastern New York, possibly
the Oblong area when NY and Ct and Mass were still arguing over who owned it. John Rose
first shows up in the town of Colchester after he married Rhoda Crippen c1797. John's
youngest daughter Christina said both her parents were born in New England (1880 Census).
