Gospel preacher listed in Ligon's Portraiture of Preachers of 1899.
"W. K. Rose was born Aug. 15, 1870 , near Saulsbury, Tenn. His early life was spent on the farm. His father was a self-sacrificing preacher of the Gospel for about forty-six years. Brother Rose was called to Texas in the fall of 1893 to accept a position as teacher in the high school at Detroit, where he remained in the work for three years. He then taught in some of the schools of the county. He obeyed the Gospel at the age of thirteen, and began preaching in 1881, since which time his earnest work has been a benediction to many souls. He is known to be unswerving in conviction for Truth, earnest, persistent and untiring in his work for the advancement of the Kingdom of God. Being especially interested in the youth of our land, the great object of his life has been to uplift boys and girls, and to bring sunshine into the life of all he touches. He was married Dec. 20. 1899, at Detroit, Tex., to Miss Lula May Bourne. To them two sons have been bornóboth of them have passed to the home beyond. For six years he labored with the church at Paris and in Lamar County. The past five years he and his amiable wife have lived in Cleburne, Tex., their present home, where his work with the congregation has been pleasant and fruitful." --- Preachers Who Blazed the Trail by C.
