Consists of genealogical data regarding the Rose Family of Ballard and Carlisle counties in Kentucky. This collection holds numerous photocopied deeds, indentures, church records, census records, as well as correspondence, photographs, negatives, tintypes, photograph albums, diaries, and funeral guest books. Unfortunately, the majority of the photographs, negatives, tintypes, and both of the photograph albums are unidentified; one might assume they are of the Rose family and perhaps other related family members. There are also some photographs of cemeteries showing Rose family headstones. Correspondence of note include letters from the California Gold Rush sent by Gramberry Rose to his wife, Mary Sublett, and family in Greene County, Missouri, dating from 1850 to 1855.
