He is listed in census' with the following names/spellings:
Elias Rector Rosson
Elias R Rofson
His pension application was originally denied as they could find no record. He produced two witnesses:
K. L Winton of Depew, Creek Co, OK
R. P. Barsten (or Barslen?) of Depew, Creek Co, OK.
Thank you for any help!
We believe his father was John E Rosson who joined the Confederates in Arkansas (he was a property owner in MO though). I haven't been able to tie John to the Indian Brigade though either.
Thank you again for any help!
