Biography

Alpheus McClelland Rote was born March 1865 in Pennsylvania. He was the son of William Rote (b. October 1814 in Pennsylvania, d. 11 Dec 1880 in Pennsylvania) and Magdalena, also called Martha, (b. July 25, 1823 in Pennsylvania, d. June 8, 1891).

Alpheus Rote and Ella Ward married in 1883. In 1884, Alpheus was listed in the Harrisburg, Pennsylvania City Directory, as was his mother, then a widow, at a separate address. Alpheus also appears in the Harrisburg city directories for 1890 through 1896. In 1884, Alpheus was listed as working as a laborer; in later directories, as a brakeman.

Most of the 1890 US Census records were destroyed in a fire, including those most likely to list Alpheus and Ella.

Alpheus and Ella are listed in the 1900 US Census for New Castle, Pennsylvania. Alpheus' occupation is given as "Heater Tin Mill." Ella is reported as having given birth to 7 children, of whom 6 had survived. There were six children living in the home:

  1. Mabel, daughter, b. April 1886 (14)
  2. Galen, son, b. March 1888 (12)
  3. John, son, b. February 1893 (7)
  4. Emma, daughter, b. April 1895 (5)
  5. Howard, son, b. June 1897 (2)
  6. Minnie, daughter, b. August 1899 (9 months)

On 24 June 1908, the Rote home was struck by lightning, as reported in the June 26, 1908 issue of the New Castle News (the newspaper of New Castle, PA).

In the 1910 census, Alpheus and Ella are shown as still living in New Castle. Alpheus is working "Odd Jobs," and Ella is listed as having 5 children, with 5 surviving. (Note the discrepancy with the information in the 1880 census.) The children in the home are: Mabel, Gail [sic] W., John, Emma, and Howard. Minnie, the youngest, had died sometime since the previous census.

In the 1920 census, Alpheus and Ella are still living in New Castle. Alpheus is now reported to be a Storekeeper working at a Confectionery Store. Living with Alpheus and Ella are their children, John, probably working in sales in the Phonograph industry, and two grandchildren, John H. and Ella L. Faller, Mabel's children, Mabel then being deceased.

In the 1930 census, Alpheus and Ella are still living in New Castle. Alpheus is now listed as the Proprietor of a Confectionary Store, which he owns. Living with them are their daughter, Emma O. Cavander (I think this is a misspelling of Cavender), and three grandchildren, Anna G. Cavender, Henry J. Faller, and Ella L. Faller.

Alpheus died September 29, 1936 and Ella died November 14, 1936. Their obituaries report that Ella Faller was still living with them at the times of their deaths.
