William S. Rose of Eatontown died on Saturday afternoon of congestion of the lungs and general debility, aged 75 years. He was taken sick suddenly about a week previous to his death. The funeral was held yesterday afternoon in the Eatontown Methodist church and the body was buried at Little Silver.

Mr. Rose was born at Matawan. While a young man he learned the chair-making trade at Clarksburg in Millstone township, and worked at it a few years in Englishtown. He then moved on a farm near Prospertown, in Upper Freehold township, where he lived about twenty years. While there he married Miss Abigal VanHise. He next moved to Smithburg, five miles southwest of Freehold, and kept a general store for three years. He next moved to the Markham place at Little Silver, and lived there for two years; and fifteen years ago he bought a truck farm south of Eatontown and had since lived there.

In his earlier days he was an active member of the Methodist church. He had been steward, class leader, exhortor and Sunday-school superintendent in the different churches of which he had been a member. He and Frank Mesler founded the Sunday-school at Prospertown.

Mr. Rose's wife and four children survive him. The children are Mrs. Mary E. Creveling of Asbury park, Mrs. Eunice A. Lewis of Bordentown, Professor William Rose, Jr., of Greenwich, and Dr. John T. Rose of West Asbury Park. Thirteen grandchildren and three great grandchildren also survive him. Richard Rose of Asbury Park is his brother.
