ROSE, Henry. (Pike County, MO, May 25, 1844--Dubuque, IA, Dec. 17, 1919). Rose enlisted on July 1, 1862 at the start of the CIVIL WAR on the Union side in the 11th Missouri Cavalry. The type of his service is unknown, but he left the military on May 15, 1865.

Rose came to Dubuque in 1874. For thirty-eight years he was employed as a porter at the JULIEN HOTEL. He retired from this position the day before the fire which temporarily destroyed the business.

He began his practice of chiropody immediately and maintained an office at 314 BANK AND INSURANCE BUILDING. In 1915 he married Miss Mayne Lucas of Helena, Arkansas. Ms Lucas received a musical education and traveled throughout the country performing concerts at churches. (2)

Dr. Rose has been credited with beginning Henry A. MARTIN on his career.
