Alice S. Rose was born in Hamler, Henry County Ohio in May of 1885. Her father might have been Albert (Alfred?) Rose and Lucretia A. Siblings are Robert Ray Rose, Claud Alfred Rose, Florence M. Rose and possibly two older brothers LeRoy and John.

Alice, Robert Ray and Claud Alfred moved to Kalamazoo Michigan, married and had families. Alice married Jacob Van Pelt. She was divorced and married Hank Wagonmaker. She is buried in Allegan, Michigan.

Claud married Ida C. Johnson, a widow, who was living in Kalamazoo with her daughter Mercedes.

I canít find anyone in this family in later census. I did find that Albert may have listed himself as Alfred on more than one census which made it very difficult to trace him. He had the middle initial M or that was the letter beginning his given name

I need help in finding this familyís death places, dates and marriages. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
