My great great grandfather, John Rose was killed during the years that the Civil War was going on. Buckwackers came and shot him dead on his land. I can't get to the Wise County Courthouse as I live out of state and was hoping that someone might know if a record of his death or a record of his land purchase exist there in the Courthouse. John Rose was married to Perlina "Lina" Elkins - I need parent information on both. John and Perlina married before WIse County was formed so no marriage record would be recorded there. If anyone would be willing to venture into the courthouse, I would be very happy to reimburse any expense!!!!
