I have a mystery in our family that I have been trying to solve for years. My gr.grandmother, Frances (Marks) Rose married my ancestor Andrew "Wiley" Rose in Vienna, Johnson, Ill in 1867. She was from New York and had a daughter, Mary,before that marriage. Their first child was named George Addison Rose, born 1869 in Marquette Michigan. The mystery being, there are no Georges in either side of that family, and no Addisons either. Seems too coincidental to just grab that name out of a hat. The Marks were from Osceola New York and also migrated to southern Illinois after the Civil War and then next migrated north to Negaunee, Marquette, Michigan before 1870. I've written because there was a similar pattern.
