Biography of Richard A. Rouse

RICHARD A. ROUSE. Many of the farmers of Baxter County, Arkansas, have led such quiet, unobtrusive lives as to be seldom heard of outside of their own township. They are doing fine work in their own community, but do not care to come more prominently before the public, and devote all their time and energies to the cultivation of their farms and the development of the resources of their community. Such men deserve more credit than they ordinarily receive, and we are glad here to present one of them in the person of Richard A. Rouse, who is one of the prominent and worthy citizens of Baxter County, and has a fine farm in Buck Horn Township. He is a native of Crawford County, Indiana, where he was born January 20, 1842, a son of Granville and Ray Jane (White) Rouse, who were Kentuckians by birth, the former a native of Boone County. The father was a son of Moses Rouse and he a son of Michael Rouse. Being of a rather roving disposition he successively moved from Kentucky to Crawford County, Indiana, then to Van Buren County, Iowa, where he remained one year, then went back to Crawford County, Indiana, where his wife died. Soon after the death of his wife, in order to have his three children cared for, he returned to his father in Bullitt County, Kentucky, where he was married to Byronette Owens (who is now also dead). To their union was given one son, John G. He then moved to Daviess County, Kentucky, but is now residing in McLean County, Kentucky, with his son,...
