Name: Theophilus Rose , Jr. 1
Birth: 23 NOV 1807 in Wayne County, North Carolina 1
Death: 14 NOV 1863 in Johnston County, North Carolina 1
Burial: Godwin Cemetery, Kenly, North Carolina (? now destroyed)
Theophilus Rose is found in the 1830 census of Nash County, North Carolina. He has Three males under age 5, One male 5- 10, One male 20-30, One female 5-10, One female 20-30, and One female 50-60.
Theophilus Rose is seen in the Nash County census in 1840. He has One male under 5, One male 5-10, One male 10-15, One male 40-50, Two females under 5, One female 15-20, One female 40-50, and One female 60-70.
In the Wayne County, North Carolina census of 1840, Theophilus Rose was living in the Davis District of Wayne County. He was age 30 with a wife of age 30. There were four boys under age 10, and two girls under age 10. He is living near William Lucas. This would have been in what is now known as the Black Creek Township, Wilson County, North Carolina.
A possible explanation of the above is that Theophilus Rose was living in Old Fields Township just on the Nash County, Wayne County line and was recorded in both counties. He may have owned property in both counties. This property may have also intersected with the Johnston County line. In 1840 Wilson County was not formed. Certainly children of William and Henry Lucas of Black Creek settled in Old Fields.
A brother of Theophilus, Enos Rose is listed as living in Nash County in the 1860 census of Nash County, North Carolina so they may be living in the same area.
However it should be noted these may be two separate Theophilus Roses. Abraham Lamm father of Patience Lamm lived in the Old Fields section of Nash County, North Carolina. Therefore Theophilus that married Patience may have lived in Old Fields near Enos Rose.
Some of his children settled in the Kenly area of Johnson County, and some moved into the Kenly area of Wayne County. Some are recorded as living in the Smithfield area of Johnston County, North Carolina.
Some settled in the Kirby District of Johnston County which later became the Spring Hill Township of Wilson County.
Silas Lucas Rose son of Jesse Charles Rose lived in Goldsboro, North Carolina.
Theophilus Rose and Patience Lamm Rose are buried in Godwin Cemetery, Beulah Township, Johnston County, North Carolina. Evidently the cemetery has been destroyed. Theophilus Rose, Jr. and Patience Lamm retired in the area of Lowell Mill west of Kenly, North Carolina and just south of US Highway 301.
(Information from Purcell Rose of Fayetteville, North Carolina.)
Patience Lamb Rose and her children, Tillitha, John, Elias, Jessee, Zilpha, Samuel, Polley, Henry are found in the Johnston County, North Carolina census of 1850. Theophilus Rose, husband is not living with Patience in the Johnston County Census of 1850. It is not known where he was. He is not listed on any of the pages of the 1850 Johnston County census of 1850.
