[GB41] Family fled on account of religeous persecution from the town of Roosa in Spain-this pedigree originated at a time when the majority of the Dutch families preferred a descent from foreign lands rather than acknowledge their less illustrious hard-working Dutch forebears who by their industry had made their more opulent descendents ancestor-conscious, and thus this must be questioned, and rather family possibly was originally named de Roos, which had lived for many generations at Herwynen.

[NYSo] Roosa: This is a very old Dutch family, early identified with the history of Southern New York, and still has numerous representatives scattered all over the region. It appears very early in the settlement of Kingston, and Ulster County owes much of its development and progress to the industry, intelligence and enterprise of this family.

[UCBR] Ancestry traced back to Gelderland, a province in Holland.
