About Joanna Rose


     The origins of the Widow Rose and her probable children: Thomas and Mary Rose, of New London, Conn are unknown. We don't know for sure if the widow was widowed in England and she came to America with family or friends, or if she was widowed here.

The Immigrant

Widow Joanna Rose

   There is little known about the Widow Rose. There is no evidence to show she was Eames, or Rathbone, or Ransford; all names speculated for her maiden name. Her origins and maiden name are unknown. The first name of her husband is also unknown, although since the name Thomas was repeated down into future generations, it might be Thomas. Neither is there any known relationship with Daniel Rose of Wethersfield, Conn or Robert Rose of Mass, or the Rose's of Long Island. It is possible she is an unrecorded daughter of another immigrant and married in America.
   Savage's Dictionary of New England Settlers says, under Thomas Fleming:
       "FLEMING, ROBERT, Stonington 1669, had grant of land 30 Sept, that year. and died before 1681, leaving widow Joanna and daughter Mary Rose, possibly other children."
