Birth: Apr., 1810
Death: May 1, 1863

James ROSECRANCE,
The second settler in the township, arrived in the spring of 1838, and located upon 160 acres, on section 20, which was wholly uncleared. He erected a shanty and began at once the work of underbrushing, the men of the family being their own housekeepers. An extensive tract was improved in the course of time, which is now occupied by the sons of Mr. ROSECRANCE.
