Re: None More info (Jack E. Moore)
I don't have an Emma Rosier. I don't know where you got that name. The only Rosier I have is Mary Anna (Kirchner) Rosier whose first husband was Peter Rosier and whose second husband was Theodore Columbus Iman.

It should also be mentioned that Mary Ann (Kirchner) Rosier had a son named Carl Rosier. Carl died sometime in the 1920's and is buried in the Iman Cemetery at Stevenson, Washington.

I have very carefully documented the relationship of Theodore Iman to Mary Anna Kirchner Rosier. I don't think there are any mistakes in the history I have constructed for them.

Also I have no idea where or when Mary Ann Kirchner Rosier Iman died. She was last in the 1920 census of Lewis Co. Washington living with her husband Theodore Iman. Theodore Iman died in 1927, at Stevenson, Skamania Co. Washington, and his obituary talks of his first wife Emma Kyler and of their children. Then the obituary mentions his brothers and sisters. But there is no mention in his obituary of Mary Anna, his second wife, even thought they were married for at least 20 years. I am beginning to think they may have divorced in the 1920's and that is why Mary Anna was not mentioned in his obituary.

  SKAMANIA COUNTY PIONEER, 25 March 1927, obituary, Aged Pioneer Passes Saturday, “Theo C. Iman died at his home in Stevenson last Saturday after a lingering illness as the result of the flu contracted several weeks ago. Funeral services were held at the graveside Tuesday fore noon and interment made in the private cemetery on the Louis Iman ranch west of town. Rev. Lindsley of the Congregational Church officiating. A large number of friends from all parts of the Columbia River gorge paid their last respects to the aged pioneer at the grave as he had a wide acquaintance. Mr. Iman was born at what is now Cascade Locks, Ore., August 23, 1854, and has lived all his life in this locality. He was married in 1872 to Miss Emma Kyler and to this union were born four children: Mrs. Ida Johnson, deceased, J. Iman of Charleston, Wash., E. B. and F. C. Iman of Raymond. He is also survived by three sisters and five brothers, Mrs. Florence A. Foster, Mrs. M. L. McKinnon of Stevenson; Mrs. Rose Jones of Seetsop, Wash., J. W. Iman of Castle Rock; A. O. and C. N. Iman of Stevenson, and eight grandchildren.”

Mary Anna Kirchner Iman is not found in any 1930 census or in the Oregon or Washington death index. And I have studied and followed all of the children of Michael Rosier and Mary Anna Kirchner, and Mary Anna Iman is not living with any of them in the 1930 census. She may have died in the 1920's at some logging camp at which she and Theodore were then working and her death not recorded, or as I mentioned above she may have divorced Theodore and went elsewhere and died elsewhere. Or she may have lived during the 1930 census but missed being included in that census. Anyway it is a mystery what happened to her and none of the family seem to remember what became of her.
