Photos: Henry (Harry) Thomas Merrett Rose
Rueben Uther Bartlett Rose was born on the 3rd September 1834 at Cambelltown NSW, the home of his parents Thomas Rose 1773-1837 and Sarah Pye 1801-1869. He married Eliza Jane Merrett in 1863 at Campbelltown (Eliza was born at Campbelltown on 21st July 1837). Reuben came to the Monaro in 1873 when he selected land at Boloco Creek, he later purchased Boloco Station.
Obituary R U B Rose – Monaro Express. - 11.09.1905
"On Sunday afternoon the respected laird of Boloco Station (Mr. R U B Rose) passed away to his eternal home, full of years and honour. For about a week Mr. Rose had been in a delicate state of health and little hope had been entertained of his recovery. The deceased gentleman had been suffering bronchitis and tonsillitis which brought him down to a low condition of health and his death resulted as the consequence from heart failure. Deceased had been attended by Dr Henderson, of Adaminaby, continuously during his illness and though all this medical skill and careful nursing could do was done it was without avail. Mr. Rose had spent a long and eventful life on Monaro, he being a resident of the district for thirty five years during which time he had gained the universal esteem and respect of the whole community. At the time of death the deceased had reached the mature age of seventy-four years, being four years over the allotted span. The age of seventy-four allows a great deal to be accomplished and the deceased gentleman unostentatiously crowed a deal of usefulness into the term of his existence. He seldom took any part in public matters but he quietly took much interest in whatever concerned the welfare of the district. As a neighbour he was friendly, and to all he was hospitable and on the whole his character was that worthy of a good father. By his demise he leaves behind to mourn their irreparable loss a widow and a grown up family, the latter comprising Messrs. A F and H T M Rose, of Cooma; R U B Rose junr, Boloco and Mesdames John Crisp, Ironmungie; E Crisp, Mittagang; J Williams, Camden; and Miss Amy Rose, Boloco, besides a large circle of relatives and friends. Profound sympathy is felt throughout the district for the bereaved family and relatives. Deceased’s mortal remains were interned in the Boloco Cemetery on Monday afternoon, the remains being followed to the graveside by a large procession of relatives and friends thus evidencing the very great respect in which the deceased was held."
All this really tells us is that he came to the Monaro in about 1870. I assume that he took-up the Boloco Property at that time, his daughter Eliza was born there in 1874. Hopefully cousin Ben Rose will be able to tell us more about his activities.
Re Boloco: John Malinn, His mother having married the late Mr . David Cogan and the deceased then resided on a property which he later sold to the late Mr . Reuben Rose , of Boloco . He retired 41 years ago and has resided in Sydney almost continuosly since . He did not marry .

The death notices and obituarys below tell us a lot about Harry and Amelia Rose. I was very pleased to find this material as I new very little about my grandparents, they both passed away before I was born.
Amelia Jane Rose
Amelia Jane Rose was born on the 5th August 1868, married HTM Rose in 1893. She was the daughter of Mr and Mrs Joseph Hain of Cooma. Amelia died on the 20th July 1940 and is buried at St James Cemetery Boloco, Dalgety NSW. Her obituary below is very informative: Very general and sincere regret was felt in all parts of Monaro when the death became known last Saturday of Amelia Jane, widow of the late Mr. H T M Rose of Cooma. The late Mrs. Rose would have been 73 years of age on the 5th August proximo. She had been in indifferent health of late and had undergone an operation in Glouster House, Prince Alfred Hospital, Sydney where she passed away early on Saturday Morning, 20th inst.
Deceased was the eldest daughter of the late Mr. and Mrs. Joseph Hain of Cooma, and was born at Dairyman’s Plain, near Cooma. She married Mr. Henry Thomas Merrett Rose, eldest son of the late Mr. and Mrs. Rueben Rose of Boloco, Dalgety. They lived successively at Milephafio (Boloco), Tarsus, Cooma and Magellan near Cooma. After her husbands death two years ago Mrs. Rose came into Cooma to live residing at Raglan House, portion of the old Lord Raglan Hotel in Lambie Street.
Mrs Rose was a keen gardener and for many years a strong supporter of the Cooma P. and A. Association, and a regular exhibitor at the annual shows. On two occasions at least she earned the honour of being the most successful exhibitor at the Cooma Show. In recognition of her valuable and consistent support she was made a life member of the association. Her services were also in demand as a judge in the flower or domestic work sections of other district shows. She also took an active part in functions for the C of E and other public charitable affairs, notably the Red Cross society. In her person she was a woman of very fine character, active, busy and very well informed, but never to busy to do a kindness to a friend or neighbour. She will be sadly missed by many.
Mrs rose is survived by three sons – Henry Arthur Merrett (Pad) (Kydra), Clifton Merrett (Magellan), and John (Cooma), three daughters – Mrs. J C Maslin (Ray),Gunningrah, Bombala, Eliza of Cooma, and Mrs Ron Mould (Nancy) of Kybean; three brothers Sampson Henry, Manly; Frederick Joseph and Henry Rostron, Cooma; a sister Mrs. A.J McDonald, Rose Bay and five grandchildren.

The Children of Harry and Amelia Rose

Alfred ( John) Rose
Alfred John Rose was born in Cooma NSW in 1898, he married Ina Walters at Paddington NSW in 1924., they had no children. Alfred died ca. 1960 and is buried at Inverell NSW.
Henry suggests that: 'John' lied about his age to go to France in the Great War, on returning he opened a butchery in Cooma (There is an advertisement in the 1926 'Back to Cooma' book that confirms this). He married Ina Walters at this time. He once again lied about his age to sign up for the Second World War. On returning he drew a Soldiers Settlers block at Kings Plain, Inverel NSW and about that time he married 'Robbie' Roberts
Does anybody have an obituary?
Clifton (Cliff) Merrett Rose
Clifton Merrett Rose was born in 1900, he married Jessie Eliza Florence McDonald at Sydney in 1938. Cliff died in 1965 and is buried in Cooma.
Henry recalls that Uncle Cliff was a very keen horseman. Does anybody have an obituary?
Henry (Pad) Arthur Merrett Rose
Henry (Pad) Arthur Merrett Rose was born on the 26th October 1902 at Berridale (Woolway) NSW, he married Nada Marion Goodwin (1907-1994) at St James Church, Sydney on the 14th October 1940. Pad died on the 8th August 1980 and was buried at St James Cemetery, Boloco, Dalgety NSW. Nada died on the 29th May 1994 and is buried next to Pad at Boloco.
Pad worked as the manager of Magellan and looked after the properties his father had bought on the Kybeyan Road, they included Hurlstone, Parkside and the Ferguson block on Mowles Station. He visited these properties frequently and carried firewood back to town.
After Pad and Nada were married they lived mostly at Old Parkside, spending some time with his sister Nancy at Kybeyan during the war, Henry was born at this time. Pad completed building the house at Parkside in 1949.
Pad increased the size of the property by buying 600acres from Stokes and 1300 acres at World's End from Joe Green. In 1945 with the splitting up of Goodwin Bros, Nada acquired Jibalaro (2000acres). In the early days Pad employed casual workers including Jack Price and Bill Stokes to do trapping ring-barking and fencing, after the war he employed Flanagans, Plaats, Tozers and Eric Mucomb. The clearing on the property started during the depression with a lot of ring-barking, later Johnny Livingston did a lot of cleaning-up with a Fowler single cylinder Feildmaster tractor, and the Wassinks did clearing at Homeliegh with dozers. Morris Scarlet and Mark Single did most of the early ploughing and planting on Parkside and Jibalaro.
In 1962 the Rose Brothers partnership was formed, Henry and John continued to develop the property at the same time enlarging it by buying Kydra (700acres) from Traceys, Bill Dunnings 1100acres, 300acres at Fernhill, 800acres of Linwood from Morris Scarlet, 800acres at Old Nandawar and Mowarts Swamp from the estate of Morris Green. When the partnership was desolved in 1997 Parkside had grown to 8,500 acres.
Henry married Wendy Mould of Kybeyan in 1981, and when the partership was desolved he purchase a portion of Kybeyan from James Mould. Henry and Wendy now work Kybeyan and Jibalaro in partnership.
John has retained Parkside, it is now known as Kydra, and is managed by Johns son Angus.
Nancy Rose was born in Cooma on the 10th June 1905, she married Ronald Mackay Mould (1909-1979) in Cooma on the 29th January 1936. Nancy died at Kybeyan on the 25th November 1962 and is buried at Boloco, Dalgety NSW.

Subject: Please add my name to Newsletter distribution list
I recently contacted Pattrick Mould regarding a possible (tenuous) connection between my grandmother and, perhaps, members of the Rose family between, say 1935 – 1940, in the Jindabyne/Dalgety area and subsequently received a delightful email from Gwen Hubert, in Canberra, requesting a copy of a tiny, old b/w shot notated as “Paupong”.
Gwen mentioned that she had seen my letter to Pattrick in your newsletter. Thanks, Pattrick, I really do intend to send you a couple of identified shots, along with some unidentified (but interesting) ones of the area and local people, very soon. (I note your preferences for receiving this type of input and will respect them).
In the meantime, I wonder if you would email me a copy of the Newsletter to which Gwen refers and add me to your regular distribution list, please. Although I do not qualify as a descendant of a Monaro pioneering family, I am currently obsessed with the connection and will certainly visit the area in the new year.
As I write this I have decided that I will include a photograph that haunts me. The notation simply reads “R.Rose’s Buick car” and it is with another stating “R. Rose’s Buick stuck in the mud at Ingebyra, 1937” – spelling exactly as written on the backs of the shots. Dammit! I’ll send them both! I wonder if anyone in your group can identify any of the people, please, as none are known to me.
Kind regards … John Pine
