Re: Joseph Rosson - What I know and don't know

Was either a brother or uncle of William H Rosson (i.e. son or brother of John Cummins Rosson Jr) I think I now have the evidence to say that Joseph was the son of John. I can connect John to Randolph Co, NC through his daughter Misheal's marriage to Marcellus Cook. It looks like from the ages in t...

Re: 1810 Census Randolph Co NC: Is it John Jr and Joseph?

And just when I think I have things somewhat worked out. From the NC state archives: Marriage bonds are statements of intent to marry that were attested by the prospective groom before the clerk of court in the bride's county of residence . Marcellus Cook took out a marriage bond on Misheal Rosson i...

Re: 1810 Census Randolph Co NC: Is it John Jr and Joseph?

Yikes! How did I miss this when looking at Rossons in the 1800 NC census? Randolph Co NC 1800 Census John Rawson: 2101 / 1111 This pretty much ends the debate. The 1810 John Rawson in Randolph Co is most likely NOT John Jr. In the Chatham Co 1800 census, there are two John Rossons in close proximity...

My Wacky Idea

I've been reevaluating the relationship between Joseph Rosson (Bedford/Marshall Co TN) and John Rosson Jr (Lincoln Co TN) for a while now. I have them in my tree as brothers based on what I had seen in some people's trees, with a second Joseph Rosson being the son of John Jr. Although I have also se...

Re: 1810 Census Randolph Co NC: Is it John Jr and Joseph?

I want to make a minor revision to the above. After talking to my brother, I'm inclined to put more stock in John's will as the birth order of his children. This would make Sarah S the oldest, Joseph the next, William (b ~1791), Misheal (b 1798), Henry B (1799-1800), and Candia (>1800). This would m...

DAR

Has anyone purchased the DAR applications that link Abner Rosson to John Sr? I'm curious to see what evidence they use.

1810 Census Randolph Co NC: Is it John Jr and Joseph?

Is this John Rosson Jr and Joseph? Randolph John Rawson ⋅ Males: 0 / 1 / 1 / 0 / 1 ⋅ Females: 2 / 2 / 0 / 0 / 1 Joseph Rawson ⋅ Males: 0 / 0 / 1 ⋅ Females: 0 / 0 / 1 Misheal, John's daughter, is married in 1812 to Marcellus Cook in Randolph Co, and both of the...

Joseph Rosson - What I know and don't know

This serves partly as a call for help to fill in evidence I don't know about and partly as a more permanent form of my arguments than my sometimes terrible memory. It also has had the good side effect of causing me to clean up my ancestry entry for him. What I know and strongly suspect is true &sdot...

I received one discharge signed by Colonel Luttrell and another signed by General Butler but before the close of the war my Father's house was plundered by the Tories in which m...
