Maybe I should be writing to you off list Evelyn, but here goes. It's never
been a driving mystery but I have a mystery Rose family from back around the
Revolution forward and don't know if or how they connect or who this Rose
family is.

The first is a Rebeccah Rose daughter of Isaac, who's apparently a 2nd wife of
Caleb Hill -- they took their whole family from Wallkill Orange NY to Licking
Co OH by 1818. Apparently they crossed old VA & the Ohio River to do it.

Caleb Hill's son Philander 1789-1830 married Bathea Rose from NJ, who appears
to have a brother Isaac H Rose. He may be the one born 1763 Rockland Co, NY,
maried Sarah Bogert. Many Roses migrated there to Licking and Delaware
counties, OH.

So no these Roses aren't exactly in Delaware County NY, but all around it. (and
I've wondered who Peter's wife was, too)
