Rose Family Genealogy Forum
Does anyone have any information about the family of Ceely Rose of Richland County, Ohio? Celia Rose was born in 1873 in Ohio, to David A. Rose and his wife Rebecca. In 1896, Ceely fatally poisoned her father, mother, and brother Walter and was imprisoned at the Lima State Hospital until her death in 1934. Her story has been retold in Louis Bromfield's "Pleasant Valley" and Chris Woodyard's "Haunted Ohio". I myself have written a play about Ceely which is going to be performed this October at Malabar Farm State Park in Ohio, but I am also writing a more in-depth history of the story. I have had trouble finding background information on the family. About all I know of David A. Rose is that he was born in 1829, served in the Civil War, and according to the 1880 census, was "crippled", and his parents were born in New York. If anyone has any insight to this family, please contact me at email@example.com
