rosegraveYesterday I believe found my Rose kindred. I had recently located Royal Rosamond’s little book ‘At Matha Healey’s Grave’ that I published in 1998 under Royal Rosamond Press Co. I had got a copy of this book from a library, and took it to a printer. I gifted the University of Oregon with a copy of just twenty books. I was too poor to afford more. I intended this copy for my freind Edwin Corbin, but, realized I had no copy for myself, and kept it.

On the first page we have a ‘Pictorial Biography’ of my mother’s father, born Frank Wesely Rosamond. Royal is a pen name. Royal appears to be about one and half years of age. He and my grandson, Tyler Hunt, look like brothers. The caption reads’

“If my parents hada knowed it – that one so serious would turn out to be a humorist – they never would have growed it.”

This book of nine pages is part of Royal’s ‘Humor Of The States Series’. I think the reason Frank is looking glum, is, his folks put him in a dress!
On the inside back of the cover we find a ‘Thumbnail Biography Of Royal Rosamond’ that reads;

“John Rose, R.R.’s grandfather, a saw-mill man, settled with his daughter, Ida Lousisiana Rose, in Butler Missouri, right after the Civil War. Later, Mr. Rose bought a farm four miles west of Butler, on the Miami.

Mr’s Rosamond, a widow, migrated to Butler from Mississippi, with her four sons and a daughter. Her youngest son, William Thomas, met and fell in love with Ida. Married, they were provided with a cabin on a corner of the John Rose farm, where Royal, on December 18th. 11881, was born.”

Royal does not give the name of his grandmother, the widow of William Thomas, whose surname was Rosamond, but she is Frances Morrison. As for the name Ida Lousiana Rose, my Rosamond kindred might hold a record for odd names befitting backwoods folk, such as Fanny Lou Rosamond. But, when you ask what is in a name, you discover the name Fanny means “from France”. Does Lou stand for Louisiana?

We even have a Homer Rosamond which might make the Rosamond family the quintessential American Family, especially when my kindred were named after Francis Marion ‘The Swamp Fox’ who parents were Huguenots, as was the progenitor of the Rosamond family who may have come from Rougemont Switzerland, a city that was once a part of France. Frank Wesely Rosamond was named after Francis, and descends from James Rosamond, who allegedly fought alongside Samuel Rosamond, who served as a Captain in the Revolutionary War under Marion. Charles Rose, the ancestor of John Rose, also fought the British in the War of Independence. John E. Rose and his wife Eiiza, are buried in Butler. His ancestor, William Hemry Rose married Hanna Gowens, a famous family from Cornwall.

The link to John E. Rose is not proven. I am going to contact the Butler Historic Society. I just tlaked to Peggy Buhr at the Bates County Museum and she told me about Order 11. Frances Rosamond came to Butler after this order.

When I talked to Elizabeth at the Miami Museum she set me straight about the city of Butler. The Meyer family historyis beautiful, a real gem.

In his history of the Rosamond family family (1938) Leland Rosemond mentions, and then dismisses Fair Rosamond as being key to our family and our name. However, with my resent discovery about the true Rose Lineage, the Holy Grail has come to America. Rosamond had a graal cup entwined in vines on her tomb. She is the sleeping beauty that will soon awaken and behold her Family Tree that spring from my late sister, Christine Rosamond Benton.

Ed Corbin’s mother is kin to Francis Cavenaugh a Plymouth Brethren from which the evangelicals hail.

THE NAME ROSEMOND

Some confusion seems to have resulted from the fact that more than
one origin for this name has existed. The oldest, perhaps, is the
Teutonic “Hrosmond”, conspicuous as far back as the 6th century in
the history of the Gepidae and the Lombards of northern Italy. “Mond”
in the Anglo-Saxon signified the protection given by a noble, or
chieftain, to this dependents of every kin, and the name signified
among them strong, or famous, protection. The form “Rosenmund”,
usually reckoned as German, has been interpreted as “rose of the
world,” form the Latin “mundus” for world. In Danish the name appears
as Rozamond; in French, as Rosemonde, in Italian, as Rosmonda, and in
Latin and Spanish, as Rosamunda.

“The Huguenot tradition in the family, confirmed by such sources as
O’Hart’s Irish Pedigrees and Agnew’s French Protestant Exiles,
suggests a French origin also and this has been found in the
name “Rougemont”, still perpetuated by the name of a village in
southeastern France, near Switzerland, and another village in
southwestern Germany. Why this source seems preferable for our origin
will be mentioned again.

Book shows end of PAGE 3 here

“Such a name, transported to other countries and dealt with in other
languages, was certain to be changed and even distorted. Our own
people have at times adopted the form “Roseman”, or “Rosman”,
or “Rossman”, or “Rosmond”, or “Rosmon”. The first three forms are
common in Germany although wholly unconnected with our family. Elders
in the family have held the view that the presence of the “d” is
significant and, since it is the equivalent of the “t”
in “Rougemont,” that seems reasonable. As many as thirty variations
are found, and yet the name in any form is not a common one in this
country if the German forms above are to be disregarded.

“In the Southern states among those identified with our line in
Ireland, the form “Rosamond” prevails as it does in England and
Canada, but the legends of “Fair Rosamond” Clifford which popularized
it there have no significance for us. It is, in one form or another,
the name of towns, but inquiry has developed that our family had
nothing to do with giving them.

Charles Gowens, a Revolutionary War soldier from Virginia saw much of the panorama of America unfold during his life­time.  He died at the age of 106, according to the research of Anna Brooks Dobbin Gowens, a family researcher.  She wrote in a letter May 1, 1952 from Del Rio, Texas, “Charles Gowens became an expert marksman during the war and retained this proficiency throughout his lifetime.  At the age of 102, in an exhibition, he brought down a squirrel from the top of a tall tree with his old muzzle-loader.”

Cornwall Was Ancestral Home
Of Many Foundation Members
Cornwall, on the southwest extremity of England, was home to
a concentration of Gawin-Gowen-Goyen-Goyne families prior
to emigration to the New World.  Although the family is
generally considered Scotch because the surname has Celtic
derivation, the Cornish language, though no longer in usage,
was also Celtic.
From the Tamar River to Land’s End, the Cornish parish regis-
ters record the christenings, the marriages and the deaths of
family members from the early 1500s to the present.  These
ledgers, some remaining after four centuries, plus data in the
Public Records office in Truro reveal much of the family and are
genealogical treasure troves to those with Cornish ancestors.

Michele,
So good to hear from you. And such a pleasure to know that we may
have Rosamond relatives in the UK.
Our Rosamond ancestor arrived in the “colonies” in 1737 on board the
ship St. Andrew Galley from Rotterdam. The ship landed in Philadelphia, in
what is now the state of Pennsylvania, on the east coast of the US. Johann
Jacob Rosemann is listed as a passenger, and signed an oath of allegiance
to King George II.
Do you know if your family was originally from the Palatine area of
France? Our ancestors fled to Holland after the Edict of Nantes was revoked
in 1685, and from there to the American colonies. It would be wonderful if
we had common ancestors!

Hello
It is very hard to tell where in france our relatives came from, although
we can be fairly certain that they came with the Hugenots and settled in
Spitalfields, East London, not far from where the family was living up to 5
years ago. It would be lovely to think that we were related and had cousins
so far away.
All the best

My grandfather, Royal Rosamond, authored several books, numerous short stories, and countless poems that were published in ‘Out West’ ‘Liberty Magazine’, and several Romance magazines. He was good friends of Dashiel Hammet according to my mother Rosemary, and my Aunt Lillian recalls falling asleep to the sound of her father, and the author Earl Stanley Gradner, typing away in their home in Ventura California, they honing up on their literary skills. Dashiel and Earl were members of the ‘Black Mask’ a society of mystery writers.

Royal was born in a log cabin on the Missouri River, the only known child of William Rosamond and Ida Louisiana Rose. He met my grandmother, Mary Magdalene Wienke while working in Brakey’s Cash Bizaar in Ojai, and would later own the first general store in Ventura. A short biography of Royal is found in my link to my newspaper ‘Royal Rosamond Press’.

Royal was a good friend of Otto Rayburn, the Ozark historian, they meeting when Royal returned to the Ozarks to become a Regional writer. Royal published in Rayburn’s ‘Arcadian Magazine’ “A Journal
of the Well-flavored Earth” printed in Eminence Missouri. Royal would later found ‘Gem Publishing’ in Oklahoma City, and publish his books ‘Bound in Clay’ and ‘Ravola of Thunder Mountain’.

I have corespondence between Royal and Otto. I wonder if he met the Regional artist, Thomas Hart Benton, who was also good friends of Otto Rayburn, there photographs of both men in Volume 1. of
Rayburn’s ‘Enchanted Ozarks’ an archives of Ozark Folk Life found at the University of Arkansas.

Each article was numbered based on date of publicatiion, not the date of the church record.

William and Elizabeth Rose — Pension No. W 8554
In Whitley Co., KY 19 Nov 1833, William Rose, resident of Whitley Co., KY
on the waters of Cain Creek on the main road leading to Barbourville from
Jacksboro, TN and about 22 miles from Barbourville, KY, age 76, made
declaration that he entered service in the Revolutionary War as a volunteer
in Granville, NC where he resided at that time. He began in the spring of
1790 for a term of 8 months, under Capt. Bartlet Scearcey, Lt Simms and
rendezvoused at Hillsboro, then received the appointment and commission of
Ensign. They marched to Salisbury, then down the Peedee River, then on the
road to join Gen. Gates. They were joined by Gen. John Butler. He states
that when about 7 miles from Camden, they heard of the defeat of Gen. Gates
at that place and retreated back to Hillsboro, then marched in the direction
of Wilmington and stationed at Col. Robert Burton’s near a small village.
They remained there until sometime in November when he was permitted to
return to his family. On 1 Dec 1780, he had a small son born to his wife
whom they named William. The son now lives within 5 miles of this deponent.
Soon after the birth of his son, he again volunteered under Stephen Merit,
and Capt. Joseph Langston. This deponent again was Ensign. He was
constantly engaged in scouting the country, disarming the Tories and
marching against them when they collected in numbers. He was at Hillsboro
when he heard of Tarlton’s defeat at Cow Pens and then by a “Naration,”
which was the old soldier name for calling the soldiers, they were all
called to join him and receive protection. A great many did join him. At
that time Gen. Butler and the militia under him were in the lower end of
Granville Co. He was with them. After this Cornwallis marched to Guilford,
as he understood. The company to which he belonged was never with the army
of Gen. Greene, but were often within a few days march of him. Later they
were ordered to join Washington at Yorktown. Before they got there,
Cornwallis had surrendered and he resigned his commission of Ensign and
returned to his family. He stated that he served nearly 18 months.
He stated that he was born in Granville, NC on Tar River in 1757 and that
he was living in Granville Co. when he was called into service. Since the
Revolutionary War, he moved to Pendleton Co., SC., then to Powell’s Valley,
then to Whitley Co., then to Knox Co. where he lived more than 15 years.

Wm. Siler, John Powell and Ann Powell made certifications of their
acquaintance with Wm. Rose and to their belief in his statements.

commanded by Capt. Learcoy of the regiment, commanded by Col. Burton in the
NC line for 1 year and 4 months was inscribed on the roll of the KY agency
to commence 4 Mar 1831. Certificate of the pension was issued 6 Dec 1833.
In Whitley Co., KY 18 Aug 1836 before Wm. Siler, J.P. Elizabeth Rose
resident of Clear Fork, age 76, appeared in court and made declaration that

Revolutionary War and that she was married to Wm. Rose on 12 Mar 1774 and
that her husband died 12 Feb 1835. They had 4 children other than William,
who was born during the Revolutionary War. She mentioned Hutson and
Christina and stated that William was born 1 Dec after Gates Defeat and that
she was married to Wm. Rose in Granville Co. NC by Robert Dickins. They had
10 children, the oldest of whom is at this date age 60 and the youngest is
between 37 and 40 years of age.

KY that he was well acquainted with the above named Elizabeth Rose and her
husband, Wm. Rose for 45 years.
