Rosencrans Family
I have the follow notes and think your family is connected. "The Rosenkrns Family" book is on line but lost bookmark. This might help.
NOTE:"The Rosenkrans Family in Europe and America" by Allen Rosenkrans, Jan 1900
John Rosenkrans, son of Jacobus, was born at Huguenot, and bap. at Port Jervis March 20, 1749. Maria was a daughter of Jan Alderse Roosa, and Catherine Van Etten. He was bap. at Hurley, NY, Jan 29, 1712, son of Jan, the son Albert Heymanse Roosa and Wintje Allerd, from Harwynen, Gelderland, who came to Kingston 1660. The other children of Jan Alderse Roosa were Rebecca, Isaiah and Jacob. Johhannis, or John, was evidently a scripture man and a Christian, as were the early settlers generally, and gave scripture names to all his children. He lived in Orange Co. NY during the Revolution, and his great grand daughter, Mrs. C. E. Trotter of Marshalltown, IA informs me that he was a soldier under a Captain Rosa, perhaps his father in law. John Rosenkrans and all his sons, Abraham, Isaac, Jacob and John went to the Wyoming Valley, PA, where his brother, Capt Daniel had first gone, and still later they went to Delaware Co. OH.
Mr. O.J. Harey, of Wilkesbarre, PA, reports the following conserning him: "John Rosencrants was admitted February, 1800, to Lodge No.1, F.A.M. at Wilkesbarre. 11 Mar 1800, B. Seetland, for 500 pounds conveys to John Rosencrants, Secord Island, 300 acres, Putnam twp, Luzerne Co. In July, 1802, John Rosencrants bought two lots in Nanticoke, Luzserne Co. PA" These purchases were near Tunkhannock, LuzerneCo, now Wyoming, PA. John went on the Delaware Co. OH and purchased land there, as the records show, 1810, being the first Rosenkrans Family in Delaware Co. OH including the spellings of their names has been reported Mr. J. P. Wintermute, of Delaware, OH historian of the Wintermute family. Concerning John Rosencrants' settlement in Ohio, his granddaughter, Mrs. Permelia Stockwell, of Sunbury, Ohio, seventy-two years of age, in a leter Nov. 20, 1893, writes as follows: "My father's name was Jacob Rosecrans, and my grandfather's name was John. He had one daughter named Rebecca and four sons named Abraham, Isaac, Jacob and John, all scripture names. My Grandmother's name was Mariah. They came from Pennsylvania when the country was all a wilderness, and underwent the hardships of a new country life. The Rosecranses were called a very honest, industrious people." Of the death of John and Mariah we have no account, but they have many descendants in members of the family, as far as we have discovered, in the number of his progeny. As already mentioned, the names of John's children were Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, John and Rebecca.

From "History of Delaware Co, 1880" page 193, a John and Daniel Rosencrans came to Kingston Twp from PA and lived in SE quarter of Twp prior to War of 1812.
