Gospel preacher and song writer. He wrote the music to "I Know That My Redeemer Lives," "One Step at a Time," and "There is a Habitation." The last two songs were written by Love H. Jameson.

A native of Berne, NY, whose family were members of the church of Christ, Rosecrans studied music at the Baxter University of Music in Friendship, NY. After teaching school for two years, he joined the Fillmore Brothers Music House of Cincinnati, OH, and contributed to their Sunday school song collections. In all, he published over twenty collections, produced a great deal of sheet music, and composed tunes for several songs, such as "There Is a Habitation." In the 1870s and 1880s he worked as music director for Shelton's evangelistic campaigns.
