When she was three years of age, her parents moved to Waushara County, Dakota, and there she grew to womanhood, attending the district school of the little village in which she lived. At the age of seventeen she commenced teaching the same school, and taught there two terms, when, in the spring of 1876, she went to Oconomowoc, where she taught in a district school, applying herself in the meantime to study, in order to become more proficient. In 1878 her health failed, and for eight years she was an invalid most of the time confined to the house. To occupy the passing hours she began to write short stories, which undertaking she eventually turned to good account. She says: "It was while in that helpless condition I first thought of writing to pass some of the weary hours. I tried my prentice hand on short stories and articles of various kinds, and after a while found confidence to offer my productions to editors. I received enough encouragement to make me persevere and enough remuneration to make it worth my while. I wrote articles on household and other topics for various publications, and for six years was engaged by the "Weekly Wisconsin" to edit its puzzle department; that, however, has been discontinued. I still do some writing as time and inclination permit." She is a member of the M.E. Church, and in October, 1899, was living near Oconomowoc, Wisconsin.

Since then I have taught some and done some professional work. I wish I could regard my work in the entire as preparatory. My work has not been without interruptions, and I fancy I am not different from other Rosenkranses in the way of having ideas and theories of their own, and am in the assimilating and growing period rather than the creative and fruitful. I am looking forward to the time when I can renew my studies and perhaps enjoy the benefits of some foreign travel. I usually spend the winters in New York and the summers sketching, and so armed with your book, I may go ancestor hunting with a relish, and capture them on their native shores.
