Harriet H. Rose
Harriet H. [Johnson] Rose died at the residence of her son, H. C. Rose, in this city, Oct. 6th, 1895, at the age of seventy-six years, six months and twenty-four days. She was born in Oneida county, New York, on March 15th, 1819, grew to womanhood in that place, and was married on February 18th, 1841 to M. L. Rose. Ten years later the family came west to Illinois. Another move was made in 1856 to Missouri and another in 1860 to Wisconsin. From that state they came to Iowa, settling in 1864 in Floyd county, where they lived continuously until three years ago when they came to this city. Mrs. Rose was the mother of five children, three boys and two girls, all of whom are living. They are Frank Rose, of Parkersburg, Ia., Mrs. Lucy Miller, of Rudd, and Mrs. C. P. Turner, H. C. Rose and A.D. Rose, all of Estherville. Besides the five children she leaves an aged husband and seven brothers and sisters to mourn her departure from this life. Mrs. Rose had been an invalid for some months before her death and, while sorrowful husband and children were gathered about her bed, death, apparently almost painless death with its promises of a long and beautiful rest in the better world came as a welcome relief to her. The funeral occurred Thursday afternoon at 2:30 o’clock Rev. Cochran officiating with a very tender and beautiful sermon and the remains laid in their last resting place in the West Side cemetery.
