Aaron's first wife was Minerva Kellogg (Michigan marriage records, married 9 Apr 1840 Wastenaw co MI) Aaron bio is just flat out wrong. Minevera Kellogg Rose died 15 Sep 1843 in childbirth with daughter Lucy. Lucy Rose married Rufus Mallory b 1831 NY to Samuel Mallory and Lucretia Davis. Aaron second wife was Sarah Chauncy. Lucy and her sister hated Sarah....who threatened to kill Aaron if they told him of her mistreatment of them. (Oregon Journal interview with Lucy)

Girard, Michigan Minerva Kellog c 1820 d 15 Sep 1843 childbirth with Lucy) Aaron Rose opened a tavern 23 Sep 1851 at the confluence of the Umpqua River and Deer Creek. Rose’s public house proved popular, and Deer Creek began to grow. A post office opened on Sep 28, 1852. Deer Creek changed its name to Roseburgh and in 1854 won the county seat from Winchester, partly through the support of sympathetic voters in Lookingglass Valley. Rose gave three acres of land and $1000 for the court house. Lucy Rose Mallory was a writer and corresponded with Leo Tolstoi) (Rufus was member of Congress and gave a speech in defense of Andrew Johnson 24 Feb 1868.)
