Alfred Rose born 26 July, 1850 Coventry, Warwickshire, England (although in a census he stated Yorkshire, England). His actual birth entry states he was born in the subdistrict of St. Johns and St. Michaels in the County of Warwick, England. Alfred Rose was one of 10 children born to Valentine Schuttermayer Rose who was baptized 27 Dec 1810 at St. Mary's, Aylesbury, Buckinghamshire, England who married on July 5, 1834 Lucy Hewitt, born ca. 1811 at Holy Trinity Church, Coventry, Warwickshire, England. St. Mary's is Church of England. Valentine S. Rose was a ‘ hand loom weaver of ribbon' by trade. He had 10 children with Lucy Hewitt Rose:

Thomas Rose b. Sept 23, 1834 Warwickshire, England
Unnamed male Rose b. May 30, 1836 Warwickshire, England
Henry Rose b. July 1, 1837 Warwickshire, England
John Rose b. March 25, 1838 Warwickshire, England
Elizabeth Rose b. ca. 1840 Warwickshire, England
Mary Ann Rose b. Dec 26, 1843 d. before 1852 Warwickshire, England
Lucy Rose b. ca 1848 Warwickshire, England
Alfred Rose b. July 26, 1850 Warwickshire, England
Mary Ann Rose (named for 1st one) b. 1853 Warwickshire, England

Valentine Schuttermayer Rose was in turn, the son of Thomas George Rose born ca 1770 Coventry, Warwickshire, England. He was a ‘Silk Hand Loom Weaver' by trade. Thomas George Rose married Elizabeth Schuttermayer on March 31, 1808 in Buckinghamshire, England. Elizabeth Schuttermayer was the daughter of Valentine Joseph Schuttermayer and Mary Crouch who married Feb 23, 1784 in Hanover Square, London. This union produced three children: Valentine Schuttermeyer Rose 1810, Elizah Rose b. ca. 1820, Jane Rose, b.1822. (Old census shows Thomas Rose age 71, Elizabeth Rose age 64, Elizah Rose age 31 (daughter), Jane (Rose) Davis age 29, Elizabeth Davis her daughter and his granddaughter age 4. All involved in the ‘Hand Loom Weaver of Silk' industry.

I will add here that I read a lot of historical fiction, quite a bit of it set in England. ‘Ribbons', especially silk ribbons, were a most significant gift to give a lady in those times. Owning even one or a few was treasured. It is mentioned over and over again in books about the times. They were a very popular adornment for young girls and women of all ages and were not cheap.

Alfred Rose married in Oct 1877 Catherine Elizabeth McKenna, (the daughter of a farmer named James McKenna), in the Parish Church of St. Michael, Coventry, County of Warwickshire, England. At the time of their marriage his occupation was listed as policeman. The family of Alfred, Catherine, Alfred Jr and daughter Mary Louise Rose emigrated to America in 1881, first to Illinois where more children were born, then to Leadville, and Salida, Colorado where their last son was born. The family was:

Alfred Rose Jr b. 12 Oct 1878 Manchester, England d. 1948 Ely, NV
Mary Louise Rose b. 17 Jan 1881 Manchester, England
James Edward Rose b. 16 Feb 1883 Pittsfield, Pike Co IL d. 26 Aug 1947 Bellingham, Whatcom Co WA.
William Henry Rose b. July 1889 IL (lived in Ely NV in 1910, Seattle WA in 1920 with wife Ruth, 1935 in Seattle, WA and 1940 in Grand Co WA)
Charles Hubert ‘Burt' Rose b. 17 July 1891 Co d. 10 Jan 1970 Burley ID

Alfred Rose committed suicide on October 15, 1916 in Colorado. He killed himself by swallowing phenol, an acid. The death certificate said ‘phenol poison with suicidal intent.' His occupation at the time of his death was listed as mechanic. His widow Mary Elizabeth (McKenna) Rose moved on to Idaho with two of her sons. She was buried Oct 30, 1937 in Pleasant View Cemetery in Burley, Cassia Co. Idaho.
