Who did Thomas Rose (born c 1691 in Surry, VA) marry, and where and when did he die? [closed]

+2 votes

It is known, from his grandmother's will, that Thomas was the son of Richard Rose and his wife Elizabeth Sowerby.  However, I can find no records (only unsourced trees) for the marriages shown for him.

An article in "Historical Southern Families, Vol. XXIII" provides all of the information the author could locate on Thomas, and gives clues to possible spouses for him.  It also mentions that there was a Thomas Rose that died in Edgecombe, NC in 1757, but says it is unknown if it's the same Thomas Rose.  If you have access, you can view the article here:  https://www.ancestry.com/interactive/48639/SouthernFamiliesXXIII-008475-184?backurl=https%3a%2f%2fsearch.ancestry.com%2fsearch%2fdb.aspx%3fdbid%3d48639%26path%3d&ssrc=&backlabel=ReturnBrowsing

The article gives some clues as to possible spouses, but neither of the ones attached to him are mentioned in the various records noted.  I am hoping that someone has researched this Thomas since the time this article was published and has been able to gain some insight into him.  If not, I propose that we delete the spouses with a note in the biography.

      I've seen the DNA.  Thanks.  As to the book re: Lydia Sizemore, unfortunately the author gives no sources, thus only 'hearsay' or someone's theory without any records to support it.  But I love that you are looking!  It's much appreciated!!
