Ancestor Anniversaries: Sarah Rose

The Ancestor Anniversary for today is that of Sarah Rose.  She is the 2 x great granddaughter to my 6 x great grandfather Cozens Read and today is her death anniversary, in 1865.

Sarah died at age 31 and her birthdate and death date I found in the huge Rose Family Tree book I was lucky enough to see some years ago, and which I mention elsewhere in this blogsite.  I possibly need to get her death cert to ascertain how she died, but I rather suspect it was in childbirth (or as a result of it) as this is almost the same time she had her third child.

Sarah’s husband was Francis Cox and he too is a 2 x great grandson of my 6 x great grandfather Cozens Read.  (I seem to have quite a number of couples who share Cozens Read in my tree)!!

The Rose family and Cox family are very intertwined and also because four Roses married four of Cozens Read’s children, they are rather intertwined with my people too!

It’s very sad that Sarah died so young, but as the family seem to have been “comfortable” with their finances, let’s hope she had a worry-free and enjoyable short life.
