I found a newspaper article in the Rockford Register - Gazette dated December 13, 1912. I'm thinking that this newspaper might be from Rockford, Illinois? Anyway, here is the posting: "The police have received a message from Wallace, Idaho, stating that Charles Henry Rose, who it is thought has relatives here, is dead, and asking what disposition shall be made of the body. Up to a late hour no relatives had been located."
I also found an Idaho Death Record for Rose, Charles Henry. Date of death: 12 December 1912 in the city of Wallace, Shoshone Co., Idaho. Date of birth is unknown.
Some of my questions: (1) Did his family every claim the body? (2) Where would he have been buried? (3) Was he living/working in Wallace at the time of his death? (4) What was the cause of his death?
I am researching my great grandfather, Charles Henry Rose. My great grandfather was born 1874 in Germany. He was a minister in Seattle and Portland. In June 1912, my Charles left Portland, Oregon and went to Kansas for the funeral of his mother in Phillipsburg.
My Charles married Frieda Lutthans in East St. Louis, Illinois in Dec 1903. They had 3 children--a son born in Oct 1904 in East St. Louis; a daughter born Dec 1906 in Seattle; another son born in July 1909 in Seattle. Perhaps this Charles Henry Rose who died in Wallace is my great grandfather, returning to Oregon.
This Charles Henry Rose in Wallace died on 12/12/12.
