MARSH, ROSE/ROOSA. Seeking information about wife of Samuel ROSE/ROOSA. He was from Dutchess Co. and married a girl named Sarah in 1744/5. Family tradition is that her last name was MARSH. Throughout his life there is considerable interaction between William MARSH (son of Matthias Marsh of the Beekman Patent) and Samuel ROSE. There were also, according to Frank Doherty's "Settlers of the Beekman Patent" several MARSH families living in the "Oblong" area. Samuel ROSE, who originally came from the Rhinebeck area, appears to have spent some time in the Crum Elbow area before relocating to Manchester, VT in abt 1764. I believe his wife Sarah was from the Beekman Patent area and would appreciate any information on Marsh families (or Samuel Rose) living in that area at that time.
