      My research shows that on October 8, 1805 the following persons left VA for Kentucky:
      GeorgeRouse, Elizabeth Rouse, John House, Milly House, Fredrick Zimmerman,
      Rose Zimmerman, Ephraim Tanner, Susanna Tanner, John Rouse, Nancy Rouse and
      Elizabeth Hoffman. They arrived in Boone County the 25th of November1805.
      These families founded the second church in Boone County, Hopeful Lutheran Church
      which is still in existence and will be celebrating their200 anniversary with the publication of
      a book. The church is in what is now called Florence Kentucky. The origininal cemetary
      whee many of these folks are buried is still next to the church.r

      All of these families are part of what was called the GermannA Colony in Virginia and
      information can be found in two books. One "James Rouse of Virginia" by Nancy Rouse
      (not me) and another book called "Beyond Germanna"I don't have either book.

      I hope this helps. I guess we are shirttail relatives. I have met others on this site.

      Ephriam and Susannah emigrated to Boone County, Kentucky. in1805.
