Rosa is the daughter of Alonzo Blood and Maria Ayress LeSeuerer (see information below)

She is the wife of George Benjamin Warner - please refer to his bio for further information on their marriage,children and 50th Wedding Anniversary.

The marriage record of Rosa and George B. Warner states her father as Alonzo Blood and her mother as Mary E. Lesure.However, other records dispute this saying that Maria's middle name is Ayress and probably born in NY.(see obituary below - the name of Maria shows her middle initial as "A"). This author also has the back of a small tablet written in Agnes Irene Warner's handwriting: "my very own grandmother, mother's mother - Maria Ayress LeSueur Town" The Ayress is most likely since their oldest child's middle name is Ayress. You can see a copy of this record under photos.
