I am looking for people that descend from William Rose (c 1617-c 1672) and his wife Ann. It can be through any of his children, of which five are known: Jane (m. Richard Avery), William Sr. (m. Lucy Corker), Ann (m. Thomas Flood Jr), Mary, Richard (m. Elizabeth Sowerby). This Rose family lived in Surry co. and Brunswick co. Virginia, arriving circa 1653 to Virginia.
Specifically I am looking for descendants that have taken an autosomal DNA test to compare to my autosomal results (and those of some of my cousins) in an attempt to prove or disprove a Rose connection. My ancestor, William Stroud Jr. (c 1700-c 1783), married a woman named Margaret, whom many believe to be a Rose. They lived in Surry and Brunswick, Virginia through the mid-1700s, at which point they moved to Edgecombe, NC. I have located land and court records for the Strouds in which various Rose men are named.
If you've taken an autosomal DNA test and descend from this Rose family, please contact me so we can compare our DNA. You would need to upload your results to Gedmatch (unless you tested with FTDNA) in order to compare. Thanks very much!
