301.  SAMUEL ROSENKRANS, son of Simeon (117), was born at Springfield, Monroe County, Pennsylvania, February 15, 1834. His father moved to Avoca, near Cohocton, New York, the year of his birth. Samuel there married March 6, 1859, Harriet Amelia Armstrong, born January 22, 1836. He lived in Steuben County, New York, till 1870, when he located at Alban, Illinois, and in company with Early & Armstrong, as reported by Mrs. H.A. Rosenkrans, engaged extensively in the mercantile business, dealing in stock and farmers produce, shipping to Chicago and Milwaukee. He eventually purchased the interest of his partners and closed up the business, purchasing five or six hundred acres of land near Albany, and dealing heavily in hogs and corn, and as many a man has done, speculated a trifle too much at the Board of Trade in Chicago. He also kept a dairy of fifty cows at one time and made butter extensively. He had four children, and therefore divided his land into four farms, one for each child, and before his death commenced erecting buildings upon them, which his widow, Mrs. Harriet A. Rosenkrans, has completed. She was also conducting a millinery business when her husband died, and as an enterprising woman, has done canvassing of some kind since his death. Samuel’s children are Mary P., James H., Harriet L. and Myron S. [Ed: Graphics are (left, top) Samuel Rosenkrans, (right) Mrs. H.A.
