Mrs. Poyas, "The Octogenarian Lady" has been discounted as a reliable source
in recent years.  Her memories, as with us all to some extent, were not all
accurate.  I would personally consider the St. Helenas Parish Register to be
far more accurate and even that could be subject to misinterpretation
because of the age and condition of the original register.  I don't believe
that any of the hereditary societies would now accept the Poyas book as
adequate documentation.

As to Rose, I know that there was at least one Rose family in Purrysburg,
SC, or immediately adjacent.  The survey plat in the SC Historical Society
in Charleston of my husband's ancestress Mary Catherine McNish shows a Rose,
I believe John, with adjoining property.  I have also seen reference to a
Hugh Rose.  You might look in the Purrysburg and Bluffton, SC, records.

stations is named;) . . . lived just without the desolated town, and
died unmarried, leaving his property to his cousin, Eliza Ladson, Mrs.
