- James Roosevelt "Rosey" Roosevelt (March 27, 1854 – 1927) was the older half-brother of President Franklin Delano Roosevelt. He was the son of James Roosevelt and his first wife, Rebecca Howland (January 15, 1831 — August 21, 1876), who were second cousins. When his father died in 1900, the estate was split between both James and his younger brother, Franklin.
- Rosey served as Secretary of the United States Legation in Vienna and as Secretary of the Embassy in London.
- He married Helen Schermerhorn Astor (1855 — 1893), the second daughter of William Backhouse Astor, Jr. and Caroline Webster Schermerhorn, on November 18, 1878, and fathered two children: James Roosevelt "Tadd" Roosevelt, Jr. (1879 — 1958) and Helen Rebecca Roosevelt Robinson (1881 — 1962). In 1914, Rosey remarried to Elizabeth Riley.
