Memorable Manitobans: Francis Rose (1853-?)


Born at Wolford, Ontario on 26 December 1853, son of John Rose and Harriett Coolidge, he quit school with the equivalent of a third-class teacher’s certificate. He worked on the family farm until April 1879 when he came to Manitoba with his brother, Henry Rose, and took up a homestead in Township 14, Range 17. On 20 March 1883, he married Martha Barclay Acheson at Fairmount, Manitoba. She had a son, Stuart M. Rose, before her death in 1885. He was a member of the Royal Templars and the Methodist church. He served on the council for the Rural Municipality of Ivanhoe and served eighteen years as municipal constable.
