(NYC: H. J. Sachs & Company, 1905)
It is said that he was a sea captain and a merchant.
His wife was Barbara Egburson / Egbertse, of Dutch ancestry. They were married in New York City on July 31, 1766.
His will can be found at FamilySearch.org under New York, Probate Records, 1629-1971. (Liber 46 p. 513 fol. old numbers, or p. 473 fol. new numbers.) (Thank you to fellow geneablogger and distant cousin, Leah, of Leah's Family Tree, for letting me know about this will.) The will was signed on March 20, 1805. He mentions his "beloved wife" Barbara and children, Mary (widow of Francis Lynch), Joseph, William, Isaac, Elizabeth, Ann, and youngest child, Samuel (who appeared to be the only one not yet 21 years old). His will also mentions that he has "certain claims against the British and French Governments" which he hopes will become part of his estate for his heirs.
Joseph Rose died February 28, 1807, less than a year after his wife, who died on April 13, 1806. They are buried together in New York City's Trinity Churchyard. See the Find A Grave memorial for Joseph and Barbara.
I descend from their son Joseph, believed to be his eldest son.
Generation 2: Joseph Rose was born about 1770 in New York and died on November 21, 1852, in Matawan, Monmouth County, New Jersey.
