Tombstone Tuesday – Washington C. & Zibia H. Rose

Rose – Washington C. and Zibia H.

On the Stone:

ROSE

FATHER
WASHINGTON C.
1838 – 1922

MOTHER
ZIBIA H.
1839 – 1926

This tombstone is located near the entrance of the Osborn Cemetery near Mayfield, Kansas.  It is visible from the lane as you go in, and is on the east side of the lane.  The Osborn Cemetery is located about 1/2 mile east of the small town of Mayfield, Kansas, and one mile south of Highway 160.

Because one of my family names is Rose, and because some of them did come from Nebraska and live in the area for a time, I had half-hoped that Washington and Zibia would turn out to be “our” Roses. But, according to the 1900 Federal census roll T623_502, Sumner County, Kansas, Washington was born in Illinois, his father in Pennsylvania, and his mother in Alabama.  Zibia was also born in Illinois, and her father was born in Kentucky, and her mother was born in Scotland.

So, so far it doesn’t appear that they are related to “our” Roses, unless it is many generations back.  But,  I’ll keep Washington’s and Zibia’s  info just in case I find a link down the road!
