Lewis Rose's Station

Lewis Rose was born in Germany and served in the Pennsylvania Militia prior to coming to Kentucky in 1779.

Lewis and Barbara Fair Rose located their station on 400 acres assigned to them by Stephen Trigg.

Rose was captured at the Battle of Blue Licks where his brother Matthias was killed. While a prisoner after the battle, he was required to run the gauntlet several times on the march to Detroit. He was ransomed there and returned to Kentucky a year later. During that time, his wife, assuming him dead, probated his will and inventoried and sold his property.

He became a ruling elder in the Cane Run Church. (Learn more about Pioneer Stations.)
