John David ROSE
Rebecca BOWEN
NOTICE:  descendants of our subject are participating in the ROSE DNA Project and belong to Group K1 of the project.  Group K1 is genetically close to Group K:  their modal haplotypes differ by only one mutation.  As the Group K haplotype is probably ancestral to the Group K1 haplotype, our subject's father is likely to be found in Group K.  In fact, Robert ROSE of Group K is said to be our subject's father.  The problem is, there is nothing in their 37-marker haplotypes to favor their connection.  If the Group K and Group K1 ROSEs would upgrade to 67 markers, we might find a mutation that uniquely connects John David to Robert and who knows who else to each other!
Husband:  John David ROSE secondary sources disagree as to whether he had middle name David (I don't know who is correct)
Birth:  1 May 1761, Augusta Co., VA [became Monongalia Co., VA; then Harrison Co., VA; then WV]
