The 1870 US census shows four Rouse families living in Winnebago Co. Their names were Nelson Rouse, Casper Rouse, Charles Rouse, and William Rouse. In addition Chester Rouse and his son , William Henry, and daughter, Charlotte M., were found living with the Casper Rouse family.
William Rouse lived on a farm. All the others lived in the city of OPshkosh and all of them worked in the lumber industry.
Chester Rouse is my great grandfather. It is beleived that some or perhaps all of the Rouse families were related to Chester. I am seeking any information about any of these families.
