Mrs. Rose, Aged 99, Passes Away
Landed At New Orleans In 1857
Jane Jannelt, nee Mrs. Francis Rose, was born in France, December 8, 1832. At the age of 20 she became the wife of Frances Rose. Mr. and Mrs. Rose lived in France for five years, during which time three children were born, one boy and two girls: Henry, who died in infancy, Mary (Mrs. James Carnes) of Onawa, and Amelia (Mrs. John Mentnitch), now deceased. On March 15, 1858 the family sailed for America and spent 63 days in crossing. They landed at New Orleans, La. In May the they departed from New Orleans, en route for a settlement at Dubuque, Iowa. During their residence at Dubuque, three children were born: Joseph of Cherokee, John of Amenia, Minn., and Josephine who was Mrs. Judson Edwards. Wisconsin then beckoned to the family, whither they moved in 1864. Here another daughter, Jane (Mrs. Wm. Rathbun) of Ida Grove, was added to the family. In 1866 the Roses returned to Dubuque, where Frank of Lorenzo, Idaho, George L. of Battle Creek, Addie (Mrs. Geo. Watkins) of Moville, were born and spent their childhood. Eight years later the family moved to Ida County, and it was here that the two youngest children, Mamie (Mrs. Thos. Fitzpatrick) and Elmer, of Anthon, completed the family, consisting of six boys and six girls.
In 1884 Mr. and Mrs. Rose located in Woodbury County, Danbury, where Mr. Rose passed away seventeen years later. Since that time Mrs. Rose has been making her home with her children. While visiting at the home of her daughter who resides at Onawa, Mrs. Rose tripped over a rug, on Sunday and fell, breaking her hip. She was taken to St. Joseph’s hospital, Sioux City, where she died Wednesday morning at 7 o’clock, without regaining consciousness. Funeral arrangements are being planned at the present time. Mrs. Rose was undoubtedly one of the oldest ladies living in this section of the country and until her recent accident was active and bright. In conversing she displayed a remarkable memory and a pleasing personality. She had reached the grand old age of 99 years, 9 months and 17 days. Mrs. Rose is survived by 9 children, 65 grandchildren and 56 great grandchildren.
