  • We first find Ina Mabel Adams in 1880 in the household of her grandparents, Silas Paul and Louisa D Rownd, in Ethel, Arkansas.  Her mother Viola Rownd died about 2 weeks after childbirth, likely from complication of childbirth. Viola's husband Augustus Adams moved to Montana after her death.  1880 Federal Census, Arkansas County, Arkansas, 11 June, page 18B, Hse #124, Fam #129 Silas Round W M 49  Blacksmith  Indiana Maryland Maryland L D Round W F 46 Wife House Keeper  Indiana New York Maryland W S Round W F 22 Son  Rafting  Illinois Indiana Indiana Ina Mabel Adams W F 7 Granddaughter Kansas Arkansas Illinois  In 1930 she is in Bell County, Texas, with her husband John W Rose, and three children.  The boy's name is uncertain, scrawled by the enumerator.  It is transcribed by as Gurath.  But that seemed questionable to me.  It appeared to end in -tle.  I transcribed the census entry as Gurstle.  I later discovered a genealogy in the One World Tree of that lists the name as Gerstle.  A descendant, Robbi Cline, tells me: "I remember Uncle Gerstle. My g-mom Zona is not on the below census as she was a grown woman with two kids of her own, Reverda and James."  1930 Federal Census, Bell County, Texas, 5 April, District 25, page 3A, Hse/Fam #51 Rose, John W  Head M W 58 AR TN AR Farmer Rose, Ina M  Wife F W 56 KS AR IL Rose, Gurstle P Son M W 21 TX AR KS Rose, Bertha Dau F W 17 TX AR KS Rose, Sylvia  Dau F W 15 TX AR KS  The One World Tree genealogy identifies Ina and John as married in Ethel, Arkansas, and gives Ina's place of birth as Temple, in Bell County, Texas.  This corroborates the listing in the 1930 census in Bell County.  That genealogy shows Ina's husband as John Wilheim Rose.  He is listed as John W Rose in the 1930 census.  I wonder if this spelling is a mis-reading of the name Wilhelm.  Robbi Cline wrote me in February 2008 with more information on the family: "I’m a direct descendant of Ina Mable Adams Rose. I have a few pictures of Ina and John as well as one picture of John’s parents Zachariah and Mary. "My Dad is Reverda Lee Townzen 03/29/1919 still living "His Mom was Zona Enola Rose-Townzen 01/20/1896 "Grandmother's Mom was Ina Mable Adams-Rose 04/22/1873"  In another email Robbi said, "John Emmitt and Zona (John and Ina Rose's daughter) are my grandparents.  Zacharia and Mary Rose are John's parents.   Reverda is my dad and James is his brother.  Marcus "Dick" and Minnie Rozelle are John Emmitt's parents."  From 6 genealogy trees in One World Tree of, we get a full list of the children of Wilheim and Ina Mable, and details on some.  Gerstle Paul [b abt 1909 in Texas, 1930 census] Sylvia Allena [b abt 1915 in Texas, 1930 census] Edith Inola b 27 Jul 1894 in Big Flat, Baxter, Arkansas Zona Enola b 20 Jan 1896 in Big Flat, Baxter, Arkansas Reverda Lee b 21 Nov 1898 in Temple, Bell, Texas Slater Charles b 23 Aug 1899 Curtis Ennice b 17 Nov 1901 Kanoa Annice b 4 Dec 1903 Bernice Mors b 29 Jul 1910 in Temple, Bell, Texas Bertha [b abt 1912 in Texas, 1930 census]
