Seeking information about residence and death of Rodolphus "Rose" Byrn(e) and his wife Fanny. He lived in Blossom, TX from about 1880 to 1900(?). Rose married Frances Polly Persons in 1866 in Tippah Co, MS. His occupation, as well as his wife's, may have been schoolteachers in Blossom. There are property tax records for 1891-3. In 1893 he was a Trustee for M.E. Church. He is believed to have died in Paris, Texas about 1900(?). Nothing is known about his wife's death either. They had six children; five were born in MS and the last in Blossom. Brothers, Hugh "Loss" Lawson Byrn(e) (a grocer) and William "Bill" Horadus Byrn(e) (a cotton buyer), also resided in Blossom. They were all CW vets from 2nd MS Infantry. I have info about Hugh Burn. Thanks
