About John (Jack) H Rose

The family story is that Jack Rose arrived in Charleston on a mule with his coverall pockets full of cash. During an auction there, he bought acres in piedmont South Carolina. Part of his land is still under family control.

(Sources from Ancestry.Com add to the information: According to a family member, Jack Rose came to SC from the Fayetteville, NC area around 1830, settling on a farm in Richland County near Killian. He purchased “Rose Farm” in Kershaw County around 1850. He was also a business man, furnishing pine oil to the city of Columbia for use in street lights. According to this family member, when Sherman’s troops came through Kershaw County during the Civil War in 1865, they set fire to Rose’s Mill (ruins still remain), but, for whatever reason, they felt sorry for Jack, alerted him, and then helped him put the fire out.)

As we know from his life dates and tree, Jack would have been around 65 years old at the time of Sherman, with a second wife and an infant, my great-grandfather Adolphus.

At least two of his sons were at Appomattox and walked back home from there as in the book, "Cold Mountain" by Charles Frazier.
