    • Walter G Thralls' 1862 Genealogy of the Thralls said of Hiram ... "The following obituary notice was published of Hiram: 'Died, on Thursday, December 20, 1855, Mr. Hiram Rose aged 89 years. He emigrated from Granville, Massachusetts, to Granville, Ohio, in the year 1805, with the Licking Land Company. He was one of the original church members. He saw the fifth generation from him. His wife who had been his faithful companion for sixty-four years deceased about one year before him, from which time he gradually and peacefully declined, and paid the debt of nature without the intervention of disease; other than those incidents to extreme age. He possessed an inflexible principle, was a devoted Christian and faithful citizen. He went to the grave mourned by numerous friends, and without an enemy.'

      Several years before Mr. Rose's death, he related to the writer the following facts: He was a few months in the army of the Revolution. After the close of the war he taught school several winters; and such was the hardness of the times, and the scarcity of money, that for four winters he could only get three dollars and board, per month. The fifth winter, as times grew better, he had ten dollars and board, per month. In 1787 he was living in Granville, Mass., was strong, and accustomed to hard labor. The wages of laborers were very low. He could get from five dollars to six dollars per month. It was common for good hands to work for their board in the winter, and-for three or four dollars, and board and washing, per month, in the summer.

      By the laws of Massachusetts at that time, he and his brothers, when they had no property, were each assessed a poll tax of $6 12, annually. Yet by industry and economy, he was able, in 1805, to buy a good farm in Granville, Ohio, on which he lived till his death. All his family, seven in number, that in 1805 moved to Ohio, were living in 1854. Four generations were then living on the same farm. Hiram, when he died, was the last of that numerous generation. He and his brothers Timothy, Lemuel, Enoch Graves, and others, formed what was called 'The Licking Land Company,' and bought seven quarters of townships of land in and near Granville, and settled there in 1805, and soon converted the wilderness into a fruitful field."
