My ROSE family continues to elude me even though DNA testing connects me to the Dutch ROOSA family that settled in Ulster County New York in 1660. I have yet to connect this family to my gg gf who died in the Civil War. Conflicting records have him born in NY and OH.
Hey Pete, how are you? I'm going to be seeing my grandfather this weekend and will ask and try to find out as much information as possible for the both of us. However, I would greatly appreciate it if you left me as much information as possible, anything that you think may be relevant, especially the address of the house, and lots of names and spouses that may jog his memory. I have a feeling we need to trace the Rosario line, with his siblings and children. Birth, marriage, death dates would also help a lot too, since it seems we've been about two generations off so far. So please leave me with as much as you can, just comment on my wall like this, and I will get it and proceed with my investigation. Thank you so much and I'm sure I'll be able to obtain some good information!
