Does anyone know anything about Lewis C. Roseberry who was the Postmaster of Roseberry, Idaho? Believe him to be a descendant of my husband's family. Would be interested in any information about him. Believe that his full name was Lewis Cass Roseberry, and that he was born in Missouri.

Lewis Cass Roseberry was my great grandfather - born in Missouri, died in Colorado. It is my understanding that he lived in Idaho for about a year. I was not aware that he was a postmaster and when I wrote to Roseberry, Idaho they had no record of him.

We were in Roseberry, Idaho earlier this year. They now have photos and family info on Lewis Cass Roseberry on the wall in their museum. The info on the wall includes a listing of nine children from two wives. I took photos of their photos and family tree info, though have not transcribed it. I will do so, sooner or later, if it is of interest to you. A number of the bricks in front of the museum were personalized as a fundraiser, I imagine, and I also photographed any with the Roseberry name on them.

Are you an ancestor of LCR? I am a great granddaughter. We, too, were in Roseberry just 3 weeks ago and saw the photos (I sent them some time ago when I made contact with the preservationists) and also the document signed by LCR in re: the establishment of the post office. I didn't see the bricks! I would love to see a photo of them. Thanks for responding. Jane (Fred's wife:)

I have quite a bit of information. Who was your husband's father? Lewis Bruce?

Nope, not an ancestor of LCR, though there are Roseberry's in the tree. Recorded all the scoop in case the lines cross someday. I took individual photos of the bricks, and as I began to transcribe them for you, I realized that the name Roseberry on each brick signified the town of Roseberry and the family living there, and not that they were Roseberry's!! For example:

Nuzman
Alfred & Carrie
Roseberry 1920

So none of the bricks appear to be actual Roseberry family members, but rather folks that lived in Roseberry! Interesting now that I've caught that!

Thanks so much - it's been an interesting journey. After finally getting to Historic Roseberry last month and talking to Kathy Eld I finally put it all together. One of many of the Roseberry mysteries:) Jane
