ALERT! I just heard Washington woman has died in – Oregon? She is the first American death. The President of half the people is going to speak soon.
BREAKING! My first alarm was concern for seniors. This is an update.
(Bloomberg) — Washington State officials are investigating a potential outbreak of coronavirus at a health facility that cares for elderly, vulnerable patients, after two people at the facility were infected.
Two people at a LifeCare nursing facility in Kirkland, Washington, were diagnosed with the virus, health officials there said Saturday. One is a health-care worker in her 40s, and is in satisfactory condition at a local hospital. The other is an female resident of the facility in her 70s, and is in serious condition at the same hospital, local health authorities said.
In addition, more than 50 residents and staff at the facility have shown symptoms of a respiratory illness, according to Jeff Duchin, health officer for public health in Seattle and King County. Tests of the residents are ongoing.
Marion County was named Francis Marion, a’k.a. The Swamp Fox. My great grandfather and his brother fought with Marion against the British in our War of Independence. The Rosamonds were very concerned about their health, and the health of their related families who lived in South Carolina where folks are voting this day. Let us vote for a healing prayer for all Americans! If you were a general leading an army against your enemy, you would grow concerned if your troops got sick.
John Fremont and his father-in-law encouraged the Scot-Irish of Missouri to come to Oregon. These Appalachian People also dwelt in South Carolina where Marion was their hero. These folks are the real deal!
I just discovered a ancestor of the famous artist, Andrew Wyeth, made much of Oregon’s History. I will use his images I our ‘No One Left Behind’ campaign where our Health Patriots hold live pod-casts in schools, hospitals, and senior homes and answer the many questions.
“You will not be neglected and left behind!”
The county was originally named the Champooick District, after Champoeg (earlier Champooick), a meeting place on the Willamette River. On September 3, 1849, the territorial legislature renamed it in honor of Francis Marion, a Continental Army general from South Carolina who served in the American Revolutionary War.
Samuel Roseman was a member of the South Carolina Militia and a Scout for Francis Marion the “Swamp Fox” who Mel Gibson’s character was based on in the movie `The Patriot’. Samuel was the brother of my great, great, great grandfather, James Rosamond, who was also in the South Carolina Militia, and more then likely fought alongside his brother and Francis Marion. There may be a chance my grandfather, Frank Wesley Rosamond was named after Francis, as were other Rosamonds“Marion Francis “Frank” ROSAMOND”
Because of this new uncovered history, I find my grandfather’s claim, that his mother, Ida Rose, is the offspring of Sir Issac Hull, a Captain of the U.S.S. Constitution to be very credible. It is alleged
Captain Hull had no children, but, he was a sailor and visited many ports.
“Samuel enlisted in the militia around 1776-77 and served as a Lieutenant under Captain Adam Crain Jones and Colonel Robert Anderson (for whom Anderson County, SC was named.) In 1782 he was appointed Captain and served at the Siege of Ninety-Six and the Battle of Kettle Creek in Wilkes County, GA on Feb. 14, 1779 during the Revolutionary War. This battle enabled the revolutionists to halt the British advance in Georgia after the capture of Savannah. According
to Samuel’s great-grandson James Oliver Rosamond, Samuel served as a scout and spy under the direction of Colonel Francis Mariion, the “Swamp Fox”.
“Samuel and James ROSAMOND both served in the SC militia during the Revolution. Samuel was a lieutenant under Adam Crain Jones and as a captain under Colonel Anderson.”
James Rosamond M. Born ca 1754 in Augusta County, Virginia. James died in Abbeville District, SC bef 10 Jul 1806, he was 52. Occupation: Farmer.
James served in the Revolutionary War in the Ninety-Six District before and after the fall of Charleston. The Siege of Charleston occurrend in 1790 by the British Army led by Sir Henry Clinton. James furnished 150 lbs. of pork to the militia in 1782. He obtained land grants as a result of his service in the war. An abstract of his service in the Revolutionary War is on file at the Historical Commission in South Carolina.
James may have been married to a Dorothy/Norah Hodges (daughter or John Hodges and Elizabeth ?) prior to marrying Mary Daugherty. No one has been able to fine any record of this. Barbara Morgan lists a Lettice Jones as a possibility for James’ first wife. Much depends on when his first wife died, and the date he married Mary.
In the first national census in 1790, James, his brother Samuel, and his mother Sarah were the only Rosamond Heads of Household listed in South Carolina.

The call for another Crusade is coming from many leaders. Pope Francis uses language that puts a Crusader Sword at the foot of President Barack Obama, as does Ambassador Yousef Al Otaiba United Arab Emerate.
Above is a photo of a black man sitting at a table of European Leaders. Millions of Americans hate our President, and the truth he was born of a white woman who married a black man. Hatred of Interracial Marriage is common amongst neo-Confederates in the Red States. In this blog I identify racism as the No.1 enemy of America, and the world, now that our President is called upon to take military action against a truly evil enemy. I am going to publish a small book calling for the formation of the New Knights Templar. I will describe the true enemy of these Knights which will not be difficult. All I need do is compare ISIS to the Confederacy that employed ministers to preach the enslavement of men women and children. When other Americans did not buy the lie that Jesus was pro-slavery, disloyal Americans armed themselves and committed acts of treason and terrorism. If We the People are going to fight terrorists wherever they are found, then it stands to reason anything, or anyone, who resembles ISIS, is OUR enemy.
Patriot, Francis Marion, owned a black slave that was his good friend. Oscar Marion was honored by President Bush. My kindred fought for Francis in North and South Carolina. The Rosamond and Witherspoon family named their children after Francis for he was childless. No children for Oscar has been found. There is a genealogy for slaves with the name Marion that means “Star of the Sea”.
Francis (Frenchman) is considered the Father of Rangers. In the spirit of my Fremont and Benton kindred, who co-founded the Abolitionist Republican Party, I encourage black men and women to Health OOP.
Francis Marion (c. 1732 – February 27, 1795) was a military officer who served in the American Revolutionary War. Acting with Continental Army and South Carolina militia commissions, he was a persistent adversary of the British in their occupation of South Carolina in 1780 and 1781, even after the Continental Army was driven out of the state in the Battle of Camden.
Due to his irregular methods of warfare, he is considered one of the fathers of modern guerrilla warfare, and is credited in the lineage of the United States Army Rangers. He was known as the Swamp Fox.
The bloodline of Hodge and Rosamond families are found at the base of South
Carolina’s history. The Hodge family also fought under Marion, as did the
Witherspoons. We shed our blood for Liberty. Our blood rises from the ground in
South Carolina. Our graves are still being found. A New South has risen. The Old
South is cut off, and withers away.
Oscar Marion was the servant of General Francis Marion (1732–1795), the legendary “Swamp Fox.” In December 2006, Oscar Marion was recognized as an “African American Patriot” in a ceremony at the U.S. Capitol, and a proclamation signed by President George W. Bush expressed the appreciation of a “grateful nation” for Oscar Marion’s “devoted and selfless consecration to the service of our country in the Armed Forces of the United States.”
It is believed that, following custom, Oscar was made to take the last name of his owner, and he was one of perhaps 200 slaves (many with the last name of Marion) who served Francis Marion. But there may have been a close personal connection between the general and his slave, as some accounts of the general comment on the constant companionship and “faithfulness” of his servant Oscar, according to genealogist Tina C. Jones, a descendant of some of Francis Marion’s slaves.
