I have a Willie Rose that left Halifax County, NC before 1803 and settled in Montgomery County, Tennessee.? He was a son of Elisha Rose, who is believed to have brothers William Rose and Wormley Rose.? William Rose may have moved to Georgia.? Wormley Rose settled in Jones County, Georgia where is died ca 1820.? Could your William Rose be the one that moved near Jones County, Georgia.? If so I have some records on these families.? My grandmother was Effie Rose, her father John Henry Rose, her grandfather Wormley Rose who was the youngest child of the above mentioned Willie Rose and Susan Powell.? Willie and Susan married in Halifax County, NC.

Could this family be connected with your family?

Will be happy to share what is have.

I would like to correspond with descendants of William Wiley Rose, Presbyterian
Minister, of Rhea County, TN. He married 1) Edith Roberts 2) Margaret Maloney.

I have copies of his Indian War Service, which makes him eligible for a
goverment cemetery marker. According to the papers he is buried in Clacks
Cemetery in Rhea County. There is no marker there for him. I would be happy to
send copies of the records, so a descendant could apply for a marker for him.

I have information to share about his parents, siblings and grandfather, William
Rose, of Halifax Co NC. I would appreciate expanding the information about his
descendants. Through circumstancial evidence I believe he was the father of
Edward Henry of Bledsoe Co TN who married Lucinda Capps.
