Joseph "Joe" Rose

Birth: 1807
Yancey County
North Carolina, USA
Death: unknown
Swain County
North Carolina, USA

Joseph Rose was married to Esther Elizabeth "Eliza" Sawyer on 18 Sep 1852 in Macon County, NC. Performed by: Allen Ammons, Minister of the Gospel. Alexander Sawyer, Bondsman. J.K.Gray, Deputy Clerk, witness.

Joseph was originally buried at Judson Cemetery on the North Shore of Swain County in accordance with Judson Cemetery records. That cemetery was flooded in 1943 with the building of Fontana Dam and all the graves had to be relocated.

TVA Records provide a date of death as 1880; but Joe is still alive in the 14 Jun 1880 Census along with his family. Marriage Records for his son, John Wesley Rose, indicates he was alive in 1890 when he was married. When his son, James Jacob Rose, married in February 1897, Joseph was listed as deceased.

It is uncertain as to the actual date of his death as no death records exists; only calculating that he died sometime between 1891-1896 based on recorded documents.

His grave is now marked by a simple wooden cross. His son, Andrew J Rose was moved to Lauada Cemetery as well.
