Tentative ancestry sent by Connie Lane gives these further generations:

parents: Johann Jacob Rosenmann born Alsace-Palatinate, moved to PA, then NC, wife unknown

spouse: married on 6-2-1782 to Katherine Forney, daughter of Jacob Forney

children: Jacob (wife's name Mary), Amy (born and died 1787), Henry (at the top of this page)

Connie Lane also noted: Robert's father, Johann Jacob, was a Huguenot who emigrated to PA in 1737 and had moved to Rowan Co. NC by the time of the American Revolution. Robert lived in VA at one time. Enlisted in Philadelphia in Col. Theodoric Bland's Virginia Regiment, 5th troop, and served in the Am. Rev. Also in Light Horse Harry Lee's Partisan Corps.

Robert's brother, George (wife's name maybe Elizabeth), is shown in the 1790 census with three sons and two daughters. One son was Henry "Roseman" born 4-11-1790, married Salome Lorets in Rowan County, NC
