Content Description

The collection consists of one (4 ½ x 6 x 1) “Bible Birthday Book.” In one of the front pages is written “Mrs. Anna N. Rose.” The book consists of roughly four calendar dates per page with the adjacent pages having written names of various individuals. The calendar date corresponds with the individual’s birth date. In some instances, the year of death is also noted. There are a number of “Rose” surnames in the book, written in pen, but also a large number of other miscellaneous names written in pencil. Birth dates noted in the book range from the 1850s to 1990s, with most of the dates ranging from the 1900s to 1940s. Anna Rose was born January 31, 1878 at Worthington (MN). She married Royal Rose in 1903 and they came to the Pollock area in 1918, living first west of town and later moving into town. Both Mr. and Mrs. Rose are buried at the Pollock Cemetery. A cursory review of other names found other individuals also living in Campbell County or in the town of Pollock (S.D.) It is assumed that many of the names on the list have a connection to the Campbell County/Pollock area and other Rose family members from the 1900s to 1940s. The booklet also includes three short bible verses for each day. There are 205 pages to the book with a few unnumbered pages at the end with additional notes.
