Marriage*He married Hannah Addleman.1
Death*28 November 1825He died on 28 November 1825 at age 61.2
Burial*He was buried in the Rose Cemetery, Clarksville, Greene County, Pennsylvania.2
Relationship Note*William McKinley Jr. and John Rose were reported by the Heaton source to have been first cousins, appearing unlikely to this researcher given the almost 80 year difference in their ages. The Douglas County source reported that William Heaton's "grandfather, John Rose, and President McKinley's grandmother were cousins." If a cousin connection existed between the two, it may be discovered with additional research. McKinley was the 25th President of the United States, from 1897 to his assassination in 1901, and also the last Civil War Veteran to be elected to the presidency.1,3,4
