Daniel Rosecrans (131)

DANIEL ROSECRANS and Thankful Wilcox had ten children.

339.  CRANDALL ROSECRANS, son of Daniel (131), was born in Luzerne County, Pennsylvania, August 6, 1794. He was brought up on his fatherís farm in Kingston township, Delaware County, Ohio, where his father settled about 1808. Report says that Crandall was a Captain in the War of 1812, and was in General Harrisonís Brigade, though he was but twenty years of age when the war closed. About 1818 Crandall married Jemima Hopkins, daughter to Timothy Hopkins and Phebe Nesbitt, his wife. Fragmentary reports concerning Crandall say that he owned and lived on the farm formerly owned by his father, and that General William Stark, his son, was born on the farm, 1819; that about 1823, Crandall went to Homer, Licking County, Ohio, where he kept store. The Delaware County record shows that Crandall sold real estate to Daniel, Jr., in 1831, but we have no description of the property. In 1834 the Daniel Rosecrans farm was purchased by Jacob Rosecrans (136) and his son, Samuel L. Rosecrans (684), in 1894, owned and lived on the farm. Crandall died in 1849. His children were: Chauncy, General William Stark, Charles Wesley, Henry Crandall and Bishop Sylvester Harton.

340.  JACOB ROSECRANS, son of Daniel (131), was born in Luzerne County, Pennsylvania, December 27, 1796. He grew to manhood in Delaware County, Ohio, and as reported by his son Crandall W. Rosecrans (668), married Sally Wells. He had nine children: William Henry Harrison, Deziah, LaFayette, Mary W., Sally Jane, Eliza, Lydia, Crandall W., Ormitta.

341.  DANIEL ROSECRANS, son of Daniel (131), was born in Luzerne County, Pennsylvania, August 23, 1800; lived in Delaware County, Ohio, and, 1840, married Margaret Anderson. Nothing further is known of him except that he is mentioned in the will of his grandmother Catharine (59), and as a namesake of her husband was bequeathed $10.

342.  DEZIAH ROSECRANS, daughter of Daniel (131), was born in Pennsylvania October 22, 1802, and in Delaware County, Ohio, was married to a Mr. Wildman.

343.  PARMENUS I. ROSECRANS, son of Daniel (131), was born in Pennsylvania, February 12, 1805. He was reared in Delaware County, Ohio, and is said to have died in Cincinnati, 1854.

344.  CATHARINE ROSECRANS, daughter of Daniel, was born probably in Pennsylvania May 2, 1807. She married in Delaware County, Ohio, Ebin Crawford, of whom nothing further is known.

He was a farmer and settled at Alida, Ohio, where his children were born, and in 1883 moved to Clear Lake, Iowa, where his brother, Judge Marmaduke P., then lived. He died there 1889. His wife and some of the family are still living there and family items of interest have been kindly furnished by his daughter, Grace Isabel (673). The children of James Rosecrans and Elizabeth are: Henry Crandall, Emmet LeRoy, Ida May and Grace Isabel.

346.  ELIZABETH ROSECRANS, daughter of Daniel (131), was born in Delaware County, Ohio, August 29, 1815, and report says she married Gideon Saums, of whom nothing further is known.

Judge Marmaduke P. Rosecrans

347.  JUDGE MARMADUKE P. ROSECRANS, son of Daniel (131), was born in Delaware County, Ohio, March 28, 1822, he married April 4, 1844, Lucy Green, of Bradford County, Pennsylvania, born January 16, 1825. On September 1, 1849, he in company with his nephew, Henry Crandall Rosecrans (670), as the latter informs me by letter, went from Delaware County, Ohio, to Iowa on horseback and eventually settled at Clear Lake, as a farmer and a lawyer. Henry Crandall had served in the Mexican war and had a land warrant, which he located at What Cheer, where he still lives. Judge M.P. Rosecransí name was given to the writer by Omer L. Rosenkrans, of Milwaukee, 1893, and through correspondence with the Judge I first discovered the connection existing between Captain Daniel and General William Stark Rosecrans, the name and family of the former having been found recorded at Newton, New Jersey, in the will of Captain Danielís widow Catharine (59). Judge M.P., according to reports, was a man of strict integrity and was unanimously elected Treasurer of Clear Lake for twenty-one years in succession and to the end of his active life. He was very zealous for the good character and fair name of the Rosenkrans family in which he felt a pride. In a letter of June 5, 1893, he says: "Our family as far as I know have not been noted as very bad criminals and this makes me proud of them for a good name is better than riches. When I find a relative that behaves himself and tries to be a man I will never go back on him, whether he wears rags or is bespangled with diamonds." He further says in another letter: "I would like to have you visit me sometime if you can and in true Rosecrans style, I will try to make your visit a pleasant one." He was a Lay Judge of the County Courts. He departed this life at Clear Lake September 16, 1894. May his body "rest in hope" and he be found among "the spirits of just men made perfect," in the great day that is coming. His children were: Charles Theodore, Juliet Inez, Edgar J., Alice Cary, Flora, Elizabeth, Harry Marmaduke and William I.

Upon locating here he engaged in the manufacture of cooperage, and his name has ever since been associated with that industry in Michigan City. A few years later he established another cooperage factory at Joliet. He also became financially interested in Chicago, and in 1872, was elected to the Indiana Senate, and re-elected in 1876, serving both terms with honor and distinction.
