Abraham P. Rosa, Clayton/Winneshiek Co., IA, born NY

I am researching a branch of my family that moved to northeastern Iowa about 1860. The family of Abraham Rosa was in Iowa in the 1850 census. He and his wife and children were all born in New York. I am wondering where he might have come from. Some of my family members intermarried with the Rosas.

1850 census, Garnaville, Clayton Co., IA
“Rosey,” Abraham P., age 45, farmer
Reachel, age 45
Peter, age 19
Catharine M., age 18
Hiram, age 16
Jane H., age 14
David, age 13
Theodore, age 12
John, age 10
Samuel, age 8
Albert, age 6

Subsequently, the family is always Rosa, and is in Winneshiek County.

Does anyone have an idea about the origins of this family?
