Biography

Rose was born in 1637 in Armagh, Ireland[1] and died in 1688 in Kennett, Chester, Pennsylvania.[2][citation needed]

She married Henry Dixon (also spelled Dickson, Dixson) in Ireland, before 1660.[citation needed]

Rose came to America as a widow with two of her daughters (Dinah and Rose) and her son William when he "joined the Quaker emigration from Ireland and came again to America, to William Penn's Colony of Pennsylvania, in that portion which now is Delaware" in 1688.[3]

Newark Monthly Meeting (MM) was renamed Kennett Monthly Meeting in 1760. A Friends Meeting in Christiana Hundred (located in New Castle County[4]) would have been in Newark MM prior to 1760.[5]

  • "Kennett, Chester" is probably referring to Kennett Monthly Meeting, Chester County, which is probably where records for her Meeting House would be found. See the category page for Newark Monthly Meeting for more info.

Note

The WikiTree profile Harlan-121 had Rose's maiden name as Harlan and was attached as daughter of William Harland and Deborah Elizabeth Seamon.[2][citation needed] She has been detached from William and Elizabeth (Seamon) Harland. In August 2016, the information in their profiles had Rose born after Elizabeth died, and her father born/died in England (she's born Ireland). ~ Noland-165 00:36, 26 August 2016 (EDT)

I forgot that when you do a merge & one of the profiles is protectect, on the manager of the PPP'd one is retained. I went to remove myself as manager & realized what had happened but didn't know which of you had been managers or just on the trusted list (you're all managers now - if you don't want to be, log in to WikiTree, click the Privacy tab for this profile, and click the [Remove as manager] link beside your name in the treusted list).
