Michelle, thank you for your information. I have been following the Rouse name as my grandfather is Benjamin Rouse (abt.1788-1862). My attempt is to find his birth certificate or death certificate. In the meantime, I have been documenting any rouse I can find. It is interesting that he is from New York. What type of assistance do you need in finding more information about your family?
