Biographical Sketch On The Life Of Daniel D. Rose

Daniel Darius Rose was a slender man towering six feet three inches. His height as a debater matched his physical height. The old house where he was born on April 19, 1859 was standing when this sketch was written in 1967. It is in the north part of Randolph county near English Bluff and today is John Fernimen's barn. D.D. Rose was the son of Napoleon Bonaparte and Mary Jane Beal Rose. He was educated in the common schools of Randolph county and Southern Missouri. He began preaching during the latter part of the last century in Union Township, Randolph county, at Taylor schoolhouse which later was known as English Bluff. The congregation now is known as Delhalf. He preached by appointment, as was then the general rule. He traveled horseback, by buggy, and in a farm wagon over Northeast Arkansas. He engaged in debate with the Methodists, Missionary Baptists, Primitive Baptists and Adventists. He engaged in evangelistic work in Arkansas, Missouri, Texas and Oklahoma. D. D. Rose was married four times. Each wife preceeding him in death. Two were named Collins and one was named Taylor. I have no record of the last name of his fourth and last wife but her first name was Nan. Once during the 1890's he engaged a Baptist preacher in a debate at Myrtle, Missouri. The propositions covered the issue of one church and the establishment of the church. The Baptist preacher was named Glass and at the beginning of the debate Mr. Glass used Brother Rose's name to make a joke. He said when the debate was over he would have plucked enough roses to give all the ladies in the house a bouquet: When Brother Rose came to the floor he said that he appreciated Mr. Glass's intentions and had no objection to the ladies having a bouquet of flowers but before the debate was over he would beat up enough glass to kill all the rats in Oregon county. Just prior to 1900 he moved to Texas, where he was a very busy man in the work of the Master. Many have been taught and baptized by him. His grave marker reveals that he baptized over 15,000 people. Brother Rose returned to his Arkansas Home for a visit on two occasions. Once in 1911 and once in 1931. On both occasions he preached at English Bluff and visited his people. He was related to so many in the area that all called him "Uncle Darius." Death came in 1933. Burial was in Brownwood, Texas. —Edited from Arkansas Angels, Boyd E. Morgan, printed in 1967, 16-17.

Debates: About 15 debates by 1911, including Methodists, Missionary Baptists, Primitive Baptists, and Adventists; _ Glass (Baptist Church); Myrtle, MS; c 1895; S. A. Paine (Primitive Baptist Church); before 1911.
