Born Grenada,MS 01Dec1947 as Brice De Witt Rose to parents Francis DeWitte Rose and Betty Ann Stephens Rose (James). Parents divorced and mother remarried when I was about 4-5 in Greenville, MS to Albert Hall James (graduate of Auburn University 1945). He was a great dad to my brother Barry Francis Rose. I graduated from W.A. Berry High School in Birmingham, AL,1965 and went to Auburn University, graduating in 1969 with many credits. [Spades (top 10 Seniors), President Pro Temp of Student Senate, President of Lambda Chi Alpha Fraternity, Who's Who in American colleges and Universities]. Later traveled all over Europe, middle East and India and moved to Honolulu, Hawaii in 1979. One brother, Barry Francis Rose, lives in Tallahassee, FL. I married Elen Bornios James and have two children; Hunter Kekoa James and Taylor Brennen James; we live in Honolulu, HI.

Terrell Rose Line
Your line of Rose's is believed to have originated from Virginia, adopted by a Rose as Thomas Rose, not blood kin to the William Rose of Surry Va b. 1622 line. This comes from Carl York, Rose Researcher (

Hezekish Terrell Rose+Elizabeth Parker,,,8th child, Priscilla Parker Rose b 1846 married John J. Jordan, child/ Lillian Jordan b 1867 married John "Lent" Wray and they are the parents of Earnest Binford Wray that married my great aunt Lula Rose, reconnecting the family from the William Rose b. 1622
