Portrait and Biographical History of Guernsey County, Ohio
Published:  Chicago: C. O. Owen & Co.,



THE ROSAMOND FAMILY, whose history forms so large a part of that of the vicinity of Fairview, is a German origin.  The first ancestor who can be identified came from Hamburg, Germany, and, having been a Drill-Sergeant in the army, was carried to the British Isles by King William the Third.  His wife accompanied him upon the passage, and it is related that at the conclusion of one of the battles of that time this woman was seen turning over upon the field the bodies of the slain, looking for her husband; but he, having escaped death, saw her and hailed her, whereupon at the sound of his voice she exclaimed, “If that be you, I will turn over no more;” and the result was that she was permitted to remain with him throughout the campaign.
The Rosamond family in Ireland centered about the villages of Drumshanbo and Ballinamore, in County Leitrim, and the men were farmers and linen-weavers.  At the conclusion of the battles waged by King William, his officer of this name was offered a township of land in this vicinity, to be held forever without rent, but he refused it; and the reply made to him, that his children would curse him for the refusal, has come down with the traditions of the family.
In 1796 Philip Rosamond emigrated to America, spending some time in Philadelphia, Pa., and first settling near St. Clairsville, but removing to a farm just west of Fairview, at what was, and sometimes still is, called Fletcher, where he kept the first state office and office on the Zane Trail, between Wheeling and Zanesville.  The town of Fairview was not then laid out.  A few years later he was joined by his brother Martin, and in 1841 their brother William (father of Edward Rosamond, of Cumberland) followed, but contracted on the voyage an illness, which soon ended fatally.  The wife of Philip was Mary Bennett.  To them were born ten children: Nancy, James, Mary, Martin, Fanny, Eliza, Jane, Edward, Margaret and William, none of whom are living.  James, born March 17, 1788, was a merchant, with stores at Fairview, New Birmingham (Milnersville) and New Comerstown.  At Birmingham he was associated with John Orme, now of Cambridge, and at New Comerstown with James Dent.  Of his children, Margaret married William C. Browne, then a merchant at Fairview, later of Cadiz, and now a banker at New Philadelphia; Sarah A., or “Tal,” married Harrison R. Pumphrey, of Croton, Licking County; Mary married Edward McMackin; and James Henry married Amanda M. Campbell; but all are now dead except Suc T., who lives unmarried, at Croton, Ohio.  Hattie, daughter of Margaret, married William H. Hunter, one of the proprietors of the Steubenville Gazette, and lives in that city.  Of Mary‘s children, William alone survives, at Cincinnati.  Fred L. Rosemond, only child of James Henry, is a practicing attorney at Cambridge.
Tracing the descendants of others of Philip‘s children, we find that the following children of Fanny, Mrs. Thompson, survive:  William and Florence, of the city of Columbus; of Jane, who married Rev. Thomas J. Taylor, a preacher of note, Frances, wife of John W. Umstot, of Senecaville, and Martha, Mrs. Talbot, of Albuquerque, N. M.  Fannie‘s grandchildren are: Ada, May and Frank R. Smith; Mrs. Thomas G. Kerr, of Cambridge; and William Smith, of Mt. Gilead, children of Ebenezer and Eliza Smith.  The children of Edward (Canada Ed) are Dr. W. B. Rosamond, of Milnersville; Mrs. Mary Craig, widow of John Craig, of Washington; Mrs. Fannie Shipley, widow of Samuel Shipley, of Fairview; James R. Rosamond, of Hendrysburgh; and Margaret, wife of Thomas Blaser, of Oxford Township.
Another brother of the first Philip who came to Guernsey County was Edward, who married Sarah Dowler.  Both died in Cambridge and are buried in the old cemetery there.  Of their six children, one was Nancy, who married Jesse Barkis and afterward Thomas Ruckle, and one of whose children by the former marriage is Mrs. Julia Davis, relict of James Davis, of Cambridge; another was James, father of Mrs. Melissa Romans, of Quaker City; and another was the Edward known as “Morristown Ed.”
While the spelling of the family name among these persons varies from Rosamond through Rosemond to Roseman, it is believed from the forms of the name found in the European languages that Rosemond most nearly conforms to the original.

The Two Rosy Branches – unite!

“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.”

“A famous descendant of this line of the Rosamond family is the artist Christine Rosamond who signed her paintings simply as Rosamond. Christine was actually born Christine Rosamond Presco. Her mother’s maiden name was Rosemary Rosamond, the…
