I live in the Endless Mountains of PA. This area includes the counties of Bradford, Sullivan, Susquehanna and Wyoming. Most of my ancestors migrated to northeast PA from New England and settled in this 4 county area. The local Historical Societies are wonderful! I just found Find A Grave and it has been very helpful to me. I want to return the favor!|

|Bruce Kelly||Question on photos|
You have been at this a while, so might I ask you a question. If I have a very old photo which could no longer be under any copyright and which I didn't take, do you know if I can put this on a memorial?
|Bruce Kelly||Emory Judson Rosengrant|
Please consider the following bio of Jud Rosengrant, my grandmother's brother in law:
Emory Judson Rosengrant was born February 10, 1963 in Jenningsville, Wyoming County, Pennsylvania, the son of Isaac Rosengrant and his wife Mary, whose maiden name was Rogers. Jud was the second oldest of their surviving children. The 1860 through 1880 censuses have the family living in Windham Township in Wyoming County. The 1880 census lists seventeen-year-old Jud as a school teacher. On March 11, 1890, Jud married Evalina Cassada, the oldest daughter of Miles and Mary Jane Cassada and my grandmother's, Annie Benedict Cassada Kelly's, sister. Eva was born on August 29, 1966. Jud was indicated on the 1900 census as a minister, though I don't know where he took his divinity training if, indeed, he had any. However, the Syracuse University Archives have Jud receiving an honorary Doctor of Divinity in 1921. To the best of my knowledge, they had seven children, four boys and three girls, between their marriage and 1905, though a daughter, Adelia, lived only about six months. The 1900 census has the family living at 105 Main Street in Towanda, Bradford County, Pennsylvania. During at least the year 1901, my grandmother was living with them and working as an itinerant piano teacher. In 1910, Jud and Eva were living at 27 Grover Street in Auburn, Cayuga County, New York where he was working as a Methodist minister. In 1920, they were living at 112 East Third Street in Corning, New York, Jud being a minister in the Methodist Episcopal Church. Eva died sometime in 1931 at age about sixty five and is buried in the North Flat Cemetery in Windham. I do not have the name of the woman whom he married after Eva's death. Jud baptized me and all of my siblings, who were born between 1938 and 1948. During the late 1920s through the mid 1940s, Jud and Eva's daughter Mary and her husband, Walter Brooks Foley, were missionaries in India and then in the Philippines. They were in the latter place when the Japanese invaded at the beginning of World War II, and the Japanese placed them in a prison camp in Manila. The Japanese shelled the camp during its impending liberation, Walter was killed, Mary lost her left arm, and their daughter, Frances Helen Foley Guest, was unhurt. Though I do not know when he retired from the ministry, Jud died on January 24, 1955 in Sayre, Bradford County, Pennsylvania at age ninety one and is buried in the North Flat Cemetery.
As I have them, his and Eva's children are as follows:
Mary Rosengrant Foley (1890-1972)
Harry Wilbur Rosengrant (1892-1970)
Helen E. Rosengrant (1895-?)
Francis E. Rosengrant (1898-?)
Judson Miles Rosengrant (1900-?
John I. Rosengrant (1905-1965)
