Block Island Times

Pick a Rose, find a Rose!

Genealogist Peter Greenman has again plunged into the history of a large Block Island family, and this time it is a founding family: the Roses, descended from Tormut Rose, one of the 16 original Block Island settlers of 1661. Only seven of the 16 settlers were landowners, and Tormut Rose was an owner as well as a settler. This is the fourth book on Block Island genealogy that Greenman has undertaken.
The other books are on the Motts, the Block Island descendants of Experience Mitchell, and the Sheffields of Block Island.
