Carrie Fisher is in the Peerage due to her kinship to Dame Elizabeth Rosemond Taylor. These two actresses are in the Rosamond/Benton family tree. The world famous female artist, Christine Rosamond Benton, married Garth Benton, the cousin of the famous artist, Thomas Hart Benton, the grandson of Senator Thomas Hart Benton, whose two daughters held salons in Paris and San Francisco. Mark Twain was a frequent guest of Jessie Benton Fremont whose husband, John, co-founded the Republican Party, and blazed the Oregon Trail. His sister-in-law, Susan, gave birth to the famous artist, Philip Boileau, whose beautiful portraits of beautiful women are precursers to the work of Rosamond. Christine did not know this work. She died not knowing she shared a great, great, grandfather with Liz Taylor, who was conceived in the creative house belonging to the world famous artist, Augusta John, whose granddaughter, Talitha, married Getty. The Getty’s are great patrons and Art Collectors. Christine and Garth were friends of Gordon Getty.

Heathwood, 8 Wildwood Road, Hampstead (February 27, 1932-April 1939)
Heathwood is the Hampstead (North London) home where Elizabeth was born in 1932. Located on 8 Wildwood Road, the three story, 5082 square foot red brick Georgian style home designed by Matthew Dawson was built in 1926. Inside, the home has six bedrooms, three bathrooms, a living room, a sitting room, a large kitchen/breakfast room, and even servant’s accommodations. The home was previously owned by the esteemed painter Augustus John, whose paintings remained on the walls when the Taylors moved in. A few years later, Augustus John’s success in America would be in large part due to Francis Taylor, who sold his paintings exclusively in the United States.

Outside the home features lush gardens, described by Elizabeth’s mother, Sara Taylor as having “tulips almost three feet high, forget-me-nots, yellow and lavender violas, flaming snapdragons, rich red wallflowers, and a formal rose garden that terraced down to [the] heath”. The seven acre Turners Wood Bird Sanctuary was accessible through the Taylor’s garden, and if that wasn’t enough, the backyard also sported a tennis court.

In 2008, Heathwood was put up for sale for the first time in almost thirty years for £6.5 million pounds—and sold quickly.


Little Swallows
Little Swallows was the Taylors weekend and summer country home; a sixteenth-century gamekeeper’s lodge located on family friend Colonel Victor Cazalet’s country estate, Great Swifts, near Cranbrook, Kent. The home was named Little Swallows after the family of swallows that lived outside Elizabeth’s bedroom window, but previously it was known locally as the “haunted house” as immortalized by Jeffrey Farnol in his novel, The Broad Highway.

The home was described as a place where birds perpetually sang. “It was so beautiful,” Elizabeth once wrote, “like a little house out of a Walt Disney film nestled against a lovely woods that was almost like a bird sanctuary.” It was pure heaven for the budding animal lover. “There were hundreds of acres to roam over and a farm of sorts. My brother and I made pets of all the animals—pet rabbits, pet turtles, pet lambs, pet goats, pet chickens. It was my idea of real bliss.” On the weekends Elizabeth would ride her pony, Betty, a gift from her godfather Victor Cazalet.

The Taylors made the lodge more habitable for a modern family, adding electricity and a bathroom (created in the old dairy), which, according to biographer Alan Levy, “had water pumped from fifty miles away.” The spacious home boasted fourteen rooms of beautiful proportions, each featuring beautiful leaded casement windows and warmed by a fireplace. The rooms were furnished with antiques found at auction (including a twenty person captain’s table), and each bedroom contained a brass bed. The coal cellar was made into a pub, a wood paneled room christened the ‘Ye Olde Rat Hole’ where visitors, relaxing on discarded beer kegs, could order their drink of choice. Elizabeth and her brother Howard added their own touch to the home’s decor, painting the letters of the alphabet on the Wedgwood blue painted floor in the bathroom.

Elizabeth’s father, Francis, also turned his attention outside, where he created a lush, herbaceous English country garden. Elm, linden, fruit trees and a new lawn were planted, and a stone fireplace was transformed into a barbecue, perfect for summer meals.

Francis Taylor exclusively represented the Welsh painter Augustus John in America, a relationship that had developed when the Taylor family moved into John’s former house in Hampstead, where Elizabeth was born in 1932. The Christie’s sale includes 21 works by John, including Portrait of Poppet in Black Hat, which Elizabeth inherited from her father and, says Bertazzoni, “cherished all her life”.

Her parents were originally from Arkansas City, Kansas. Francis Taylor was an art dealer, and Sara was a former actress whose stage name was “Sara Sothern”. Sothern retired from the stage in 1926 when she married Francis in New York City. Taylor’s two first names are in honor of her paternal grandmother, Elizabeth Mary (Rosemond) Taylor.

Talitha Dina Pol was born in Java, then part of the Dutch East Indies (now Indonesia), daughter of the artists Willem Jilts Pol (nl) (1905–88) and Arnoldine Adriana “Adine” Mees (1908–1948).[1]

Her father subsequently married Poppet John (1912–97), daughter of the painter Augustus John (1878–1961), a pivotal figure in the world of “Bohemian” culture and fashion. She was thus the step-granddaughter of both Augustus John and his muse and second wife, Dorothy “Dorelia” McNeil (1881–1969), who was a fashion icon in the early years of the 20th century. By Ian Fleming‘s widowed mother, Evelyn Ste Croix Fleming née Rose, Augustus John had a daughter and Talitha’s aunt, Amaryllis Fleming (1925–1999), who became a noted cellist.

Early life[edit]

Adolescent Taylor with her parents at the Stork Club in New York in 1947

Elizabeth Rosemond Taylor was born on February 27, 1932, at Heathwood, her family’s home on 8 Wildwood Road in Hampstead Garden Suburb, London.[1] She received dual citizenship at birth, as her parents, art dealer Francis Lenn Taylor (1897–1968) and retired stage actress Sara Sothern (née Sara Viola Warmbrodt, 1895–1994), were United States citizens, both originally from Arkansas City, Kansas.[1][a] They moved to London in 1929 and opened an art gallery on Bond Street; their first child, a son named Howard, was born the same year.[5]

The Taylors’ privileged life in London was little affected by the Great Depression.[6] Their social circle included artists such as Augustus John and Laura Knight, and politicians such as Colonel Victor Cazalet.[6] Cazalet was Taylor’s unofficial godfather and an important influence in her early life.[6] She was enrolled in Byron House, a Montessori school in Highgate, and was raised according to the teachings of Christian Science, the religion of her mother and Cazalet.[7]

The Taylors decided to return to the United States in the spring of 1939 due to the increasingly tense political situation in Europe.[8] American ambassador Joseph P. Kennedy also contacted Francis and encouraged him to return to the U.S. with his family.[9] Sara and the children left first in April 1939, and moved in with Taylor’s maternal grandfather in Pasadena, California.[10] Francis stayed behind to close the London gallery and joined them in December.[11] In early 1940, he opened a new gallery in Los Angeles, and after briefly living in Pacific Palisades, the family settled in Beverly Hills, where Taylor and her brother were enrolled in Hawthorne School.[12]

Elizabeth Taylor was a person of prodigious appetites, most famously for jewellery, fried chicken, and husbands. On Tuesday at Christie’s in London, however, a less documented aspect of the star’s taste will come into focus when 38 works from her art collection are auctioned.

The sale will begin with the three most significant works going under the hammer: Autoportrait by Edgar Degas, expected to fetch £350,000 to £450,000; Pissarro’s Pommiers d’Eragny (£900,000 to £1.2m); and Van Gogh’s Vue de l’Asile de la Chapelle de Saint-Rémy, whose estimate is £5m to £7m.

It’s the part of her life that nobody knew,” said Giovanna Bertazzoni, head of impressionist and modern art at Christie’s. “She had as an extraordinary a way of collecting pictures as much as she did jewellery. Take the Degas: one would think she’d go for a race course or ballet scene, but she bought a very pensive early portrait painted. It’s a very refined and academic choice – she was a proper collector, not just a buyer.”

An appreciation of art ran in Taylor’s family: her father, Francis, and great-uncle Howard Young were dealers. Born in London, Francis moved to Hollywood during the second world war and set set up his own gallery in the Beverley Hills Hotel, where it attracted film star clients including Hedda Hopper and Greta Garbo.

Francis Taylor exclusively represented the Welsh painter Augustus John in America, a relationship that had developed when the Taylor family moved into John’s former house in Hampstead, where Elizabeth was born in 1932. The Christie’s sale includes 21 works by John, including Portrait of Poppet in Black Hat, which Elizabeth inherited from her father and, says Bertazzoni, “cherished all her life”.

Early in 1900, he married his first wife, Ida Nettleship (1877–1907); the couple had five children. After her death in 1907, his mistress Dorothy “Dorelia” McNeill, a Bohemian style icon, became his partner and later became his second wife, with whom he had two children. One of his sons (by his first wife) was the prominent British Admiral and First Sea Lord Sir Caspar John. His daughter Vivien John (1915–1994) was a notable painter.[24]

By Ian Fleming‘s widowed mother, Evelyn Ste Croix Fleming née Rose, he had a daughter, Amaryllis Fleming (1925–1999), who became a noted cellist. Another of his sons, by Mavis de Vere Cole, is the television director Tristan de Vere Cole noted for his contributions to TV series from the Sixties to the Eighties. His son Romilly (1906–1986) was in the RAF, briefly a civil servant, then a poet, author and an amateur physicist. Poppet (1912–1997), John’s daughter by his second wife, married the Dutch painter Willem Jilts Pol (1905–1988) whose daughter Talitha (1940–1971), a fashion icon of 1960s London, married John Paul Getty, was famously photographed in Marrakesh by Patrick Lichfield, and, after a brief hedonistic life, died of a drug overdose. His daughter Gwyneth Johnstone (1915–2010), by musician Nora Brownsword, was an artist.[25]

Augustus John’s promiscuity gave rise to rumours that he had fathered as many as 100 children over the course of his life.[26]

Unlike jewellery, which she continued to buy up to her death last March, Taylor’s art collecting phase ran from the late 50s to the early 70s. Though her taste for impressionist artists was the fashionable choice of the era, Bertazzoni says it was nevertheless distinctive.

“In the 60s and 70s one needed to have a beautiful Van Gogh – it was paramount in a collection. She chose one which is beautiful and very jolly, but it’s a got an intense tragic element. It’s a view of the asylum where Van Gogh confined himself before killing himself six months later. It’s the first time he was allowed out in the fields after six months in a cell, so he’s drunk with joy and colour and happiness. There is also an element of tragic humanity which she empathised with.”

Taylor’s father bought the Van Gogh on her behalf at an auction in 1963, paying £92,000. Her taste for art was also indulged by her third husband, the film producer Mike Todd. His son claimed in 1968 that the producer once visited Taylor in hospital, bringing with him a Monet, a Franz Hals and a Van Gogh to decorate the walls of her ward. He accidentally punched a hole in the Van Gogh with a pencil, but Young was able to mend it.

Taylor continued collecting art during her marriages to Richard Burton, once joking that their home in Bel Air was “such a cozy, sweet place with bits and pieces around—bits and pieces of Renoir—and, you know, things that make it homey.”

The pair also kept a bust of Churchill by Jacob Epstein on their yacht, The Kalizma.

“She lived with these paintings – they were in her living room,” said Bertazzoni. “Everything was very homogenous – the house was furnished in the same style.”

In December, 1,778 lots of Taylor’s personal effects, ranging from her most precious jewels to the wig she wore in Cleopatra, were auctioned in New York, raising £103m. The sale of Taylor’s jewels alone raised £74,196,480, almost four times the estimated price.

Bertazzoni said she expected bidders from all over the world for Taylor’s art collection, especially Russian oligarchs: “we see most of them auctions in London in February.”

But Bertazzoni added that she hoped the paintings wouldn’t disappear from public view. “I’m always hopeful we’ll be able to continue seeing [the work] in a museum. There are some fanatstic museums that are being created in the Middle East at the moment, in Abu Dhabi, so they might be competing as well and we’ll all go to see them in the Middle East at some point.”

He was born in Springfield, Illinois, the son of Elizabeth Mary (née Rosemond; 1869–1937) and Francis Marion Taylor (1860–1946). The family later moved to Arkansas City, Kansas.

Francis began dealing in art in New York City for a wealthy in-law, Howard Young.[citation needed]

Taylor married stage actress Sara Sothern (whose real name was Sara Viola Warmbrodt and who was also from Arkansas City) in 1926 in New York.[citation needed]

They were the parents of Howard Taylor (born 1929) and of Elizabeth Taylor (1932–2011), the world-famous stage and screen actress.

Within a few years of his marriage, Taylor was transferred to Young’s art gallery in London, England, where he and Sara lived for several years, and where their children were born. In April 1939, five months before the outbreak of World War II in Europe, they returned to the United States.

Taylor later ran an art gallery at The Beverly Hills Hotel in California.[1]

He died at age 70 in Los Angeles, California. He is interred beside his widow in Westwood Village Memorial Park Cemetery, Westwood, Los Angeles.[2]

My kindred, Elizabeth Rosemond Taylor is in the Peerage as are those closely related to her. Burke’s Peerage, for the time being, does not pursue the genealogy of Elizabeth Mary Rosemond, Liz’s grandmother, to all the Rosamonds, including my mother Rosemary Rosamond, and my sister, Christine Rosamond Benton, whose marriage to Garth Benton put us in the Preston family tree that has ties to the Stewarts, and thus Kate and William Windsor who gave birth to a baby boy yesterday. This royal child is yet to have been given a name.

Elizabeth Rosemond was born with dual-citizenship and died a Dame and Citizen of the British Empire. For this reason many who are kin to her are also in the Peerage. See names below.

Liz was a “Screen Goddess”. Her and Richard Burton was regarded as Hollywood Royalty. In the 60s this couple generated the same excitement we see around William and Kate Windsor.

Above are photos of Carrie Fisher, Debbie Reynolds, Paris Hilton, Christine Rosamond, Dame Rosemond, and the Screen Goddess, Zsa Zsa Gabor who was married to Conrad Hilton. All these beautiful women or the Peers of the beautiful new mother, Kate Windsor.

“I thought they told me I was manic depressive to make me feel better about being a drug addict,” Fisher told Diane Sawyer in a 2000 ABC News interview. The iconic “Star Wars” actress was also fighting a drug and alcohol addiction at the time. When she turned 29, doctors told her she had bipolar disorder; this time, she told WebMD, she “accepted” the diagnosis.

“Though Howard may have chosen a life out of the spotlight, he still had his sister’s flair for the dramatic. When he heard that police had rounded up 13 vagrants who recently moved to the island from Berkeley, California, he decided to bail out the lot and allow them to live on his land rent free.

‘It’s your land and they’re now your hippies,’ Taylor reportedly told officials, when they complained about the new inhabitants on Ke’e Beach.”

“I have a chemical imbalance that, in its most extreme state, will lead me to a mental hospital,” Fisher said to Sawyer. “I used to think I was a drug addict, pure and simple — just someone who could not stop taking drugs willfully. And I was that. But it turns out that I am severely manic depressive.”

Fisher has been unusually outspoken for years about her mental health battles, something many fans mourned when Fisher died at age 60 on Tuesday after suffering a heart attack several days earlier on an airplane. The actress talked candidly about bipolar disorder and her treatments and how they affected her life. She acknowledged there was still a stigma when talking about mental health, but she wanted to help fight it.

“I am mentally ill. I can say that. I am not ashamed of that. I survived that, I’m still surviving it, but bring it on,” Fisher told ABC News.

I just discovered Rick Partlow was very close with the actress, Lana Clarkson, who was murdered by Phil Spector. Rick was married to my late sister, Christine Rosamond Benton, in 1977-80. Rick is an actor who won an Emmy for his Foley work. Rick and Christine were at my wedding reception, after I married Mary Ann Tharaldsen, the ex-wife of the writer, Thomas Pynchon.

I had spent quite a bit of my public life fielding questions about Elizabeth and how I felt about her now. Did I know her? Did I forgive her for running off with my father when I was aged two? Did my mother forgive her? The truth was, I didn’t really know Elizabeth at all.

On the day of the event, a bouquet of flowers was delivered to me at home. This beautiful and quite enormous arrangement turned out to be from Elizabeth, and it even included a note signed by her, though it had clearly  been dictated and sent to anyone and everyone connected to  the evening.

It was nonetheless a nice thank-you note, which I quite heartlessly used as part of my speech that night.

Assuming an air of quiet dignity, I strode up to the microphone and introduced myself to an audience of gay cowboys. This was, inexplicably, a Western-themed evening.

‘Today a beautiful bouquet of flowers arrived at my doorstep – flowers that actually turned out to be from my one-time stepmother, Elizabeth Taylor,’ I began.

‘Upon seeing Ms Taylor’s signature at the bottom, I read the attendant card with some excitement. I knew that it was more than likely the long-awaited apology for having stolen my father from me. So I carefully opened the envelope and, my heart pounding excitedly, I began to read.

‘“Dear Carrie,” the note began, “thank you so much for your participation in tonight’s important event and for joining me in this extraordinarily important fight against AIDS. Yours sincerely, Elizabeth.” ’

Well, my remarks caused the gay cowboys to cry and laugh enthusiastically.

The following day Elizabeth’s assistant, Tim, phoned to invite me to her house for her annual Easter party. ‘There’ll be an egg hunt and brunch and swimming for the kids,’ he informed me.

So the following Sunday, I found myself at Elizabeth’s elegant ranch home in Beverly Hills. I sat in a chair near the pool and watched while my daughter Billie, about to turn six, splashed around with other favoured children.

After about half an hour or so, Elizabeth appeared in the open sliding-glass doorway wearing a colourful, age-defying dress draping over her somewhat ample, iconic form.

Looking every inch the ageing movie star – her hair was arranged perfectly and her make-up was just so – she paused, drawing any and all eyes to her as she made her way to one of the chairs near the shallow end. Then, sitting in the shade drinking glasses of iced tea, Elizabeth squinted through the sunshine, studying me.

‘I hear there’s something we need to discuss,’ she ventured tilting her head to one side. I shrugged and approached her nervously.

‘Not really,’ I assured her, pushing my hair away from my eyes. ‘It’s just . . . well, I heard that you had said something not all that great about my mom at a dinner party recently and I didn’t think that that was . . . polite.’

As she blinked, looking past me towards the lawn opposite, I continued. ‘Someone told me you called my mother a Goody Two-Shoes. And . . . and, I, uh . . . I just didn’t think it was all that appropriate. Among other things it’s not accurate, you know?’

Elizabeth frowned, gazing stonily. ‘I don’t remember saying that,’ she said, looking remarkably to me as though she did remember.

Not that it was a big deal. I just thought it time to revisit how she viewed and discussed my mother.

Elizabeth rose, her head held high. ‘I’m going to push you in the pool,’ she informed me. Not in a threatening way, but more as if telling me about the afternoon’s events.

‘Do it,’ I challenged her, causing her to tilt her head suspiciously and her eyes to narrow.

‘No, you’ll just pull me in after you.’

I shook my head, removing my non-waterproof watch. We studied one another in the hot sun.

‘No, I won’t,’ I assured her, in part because I’d recalled hearing that she’d had her hip replaced a while back.

We continued holding each other’s gaze, until, finally, she pushed me gleefully into the pool.

Then, with both my knees bent, I pushed my bare feet off the bottom, catapulting me back up through the water’s once-smooth surface. And, gasping, I broke free and was finally able to begin the friendship with my former stepmother. ‘Liz!’

I started laughing. I felt like an Olympic runner who breaks that white tape with her chest with everyone cheering from the sidelines. Meanwhile, Elizabeth stood there, clapping her bejewelled hands.

Kneeling down, she extended her arm to help me out of the pool and back into a world where we could now have a relationship that, though born out of a tabloid phenomenon, would almost have a genuine quality of love.

A few months later, she invited me and my mom to lunch, and I brought Meg Ryan along. Elizabeth was giving Meg some romantic advice because Meg was with Russell Crowe at the time, and for whatever reason, maybe the hard-drinking-star-with-a-British-Empire-accent aspect of him, Elizabeth equated Russell with Richard Burton.

So we all went over to Elizabeth’s and it was great. By then she and my mom had returned to that long-ago time in their lives when they got along extremely well.

We met fairly frequently after that. But it was when we filmed These Old Broads – a TV movie I wrote – that she finally apologised, for real, to my mom.

My mother told me that she’d said: ‘I hope if there’s any outstanding . . . you know . . . whatever . . . I’

And as I watched, I saw my mom following Elizabeth out of the trailer that day with tears in her eyes.

I never wanted to be an actress, let alone a celebrity. I had grown up watching the bright glow of my  parents’ stardom slowly dim, cool, and fade.

I am looking for descendants of Philip Rosemond and Moses Morton Rosemond
who lived in Guernsey County, OH in the mid-1800s. This family descended
from a James Rosemond who lived in County Leitrim, Ireland in the early
1700s. Other members of this same family settled in Lanark, Ontario, Canada.
The southern Rosamond family is also said to be descended from this same
family, as are the Rosamond families in Australia and New Zealand. I am
trying to tie all the branches of the family together. The information on
the family in Guernsey County, OH is shown below. I’d appreciate hearing
from anyone who has any information regarding this family.
The reference for the earlier generations of this family is the booklet “The

Is Dame Elizabeth British or American?
There has always been much confusion surrounding the nationality of Dame Elizabeth. Although born in England, her parents were American, so Elizabeth was born with dual citizenship. But early in her career, Elizabeth gave up her British citizenship to prevent paying additional taxes to her native country. However, because of recent changes in the law, Elizabeth again received dual citizenship when she married Michael Wilding in England in 1952. After she married Richard Burton, Elizabeth, by choice, became solely a British citizen, saying: “It is not true that I love America less, but I love my husband more.” After Elizabeth married John Warner, Elizabeth decided to again become an American citizen, but admitted that the process would take several years. It hadn’t been completed by the time rumours swirled that Warner might run for the Senate, which prompted Elizabeth to say: “I couldn’t vote for him anyway. I’m still a British citizen.” Elizabeth, now a Dame of the British Empire, holds both American and British passports.

The Most Excellent Order of the British Empire is an order of chivalry established on 4 June 1917 by King George V.[1][2] The Order is composed of five classes in civil and military divisions. In descending order of seniority, these are:
Knight Grand Cross or Dame Grand Cross of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire (GBE)[a]
Knight Commander or Dame Commander of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire (KBE or DBE)
Commander of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire (CBE)
Officer of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire (OBE)
Member of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire (MBE)
Only the highest two ranks automatically entitle its recipient to become a knight or dame, an honour allowing (but not prescribing) the postulant to use the title “Sir” (male) or “Dame” (female) before his or her first name (though men can be knighted separately from this and other Orders of Chivalry). Honorary knighthoods, given to individuals who are not nationals of a realm where Queen Elizabeth II is Head of State, permit use of the honour as a post-nominal but not as a title before their name

Dame Elizabeth Rosemond “Liz” Taylor, DBE (February 27, 1932 – March 23, 2011) was a British-American[2] actress. From her early years as a child star with MGM, she became one of the great screen actresses of Hollywood’s Golden Age. As one of the world’s most famous film stars, Taylor was recognized for her acting ability and for her glamorous lifestyle, beauty, and distinctive violet eyes.

Elizabeth Rosemond Taylor was born at Heathwood, her parents’ home at 8 Wildwood Road in Hampstead Garden Suburb,[3][4][5] a northwestern suburb of London; the younger of two children of Francis Lenn Taylor (1897–1968) and Sara Sothern (née Sara Viola Warmbrodt;[6] 1895–1994), who were Americans residing in England. Taylor’s older brother, Howard Taylor, was born in 1929.[7] Her parents were originally from Arkansas City, Kansas. Francis Taylor was an art dealer, and Sara was a former actress whose stage name was “Sara Sothern”. Sothern retired from the stage in 1926 when she married Francis in New York City. Taylor’s two first names are in honor of her paternal grandmother, Elizabeth Mary (Rosemond) Taylor.
Colonel Victor Cazalet, one of their closest friends, had an important influence on the family. He was a rich, well-connected bachelor, a Member of Parliament and close friend of Winston Churchill. Cazalet loved both art and theatre and was passionate when encouraging the Taylor family to think of England as their permanent home.

One Response to Carrie, Eizabeth Rosemond, and John

  1. Reblogged this on Rosamond Press and commented:

    Christine Rosamond Presco-Benton died on her first sober birthday. We are kin to Carrie Fisher and Elizabeht Rosemond Tayor. These three women are in my family tree. All four of us got sober. Nothing else matters. “I am looking for descendants of Philip Rosemond and Moses Morton Rosemond
    who lived in Guernsey County, OH in the mid-1800s. This family descended
    from a James Rosemond who lived in County Leitrim, Ireland in the early
    1700s. Other members of this same family settled in Lanark, Ontario, Canada.
    The southern Rosamond family is also said to be descended from this same
    family, as are the Rosamond families in Australia and New Zealand. I am
    trying to tie all the branches of the family together. The information on
    the family in Guernsey County, OH is shown below. I’d appreciate hearing
    from anyone who has any information regarding this family.
    The reference for the earlier generations of this family is the booklet “The
    History of the Rosemond Family” by Leland Eugene Rosemond, 1939.
    Thanks.
    Descendants of Moses Morton Rosemond
