"Ohio's First School Teacher- Bathsheba Rouse"
by Lucy COLE Fleming
"...John Rouse, the father of Bathsheba migrated with his family to Marietta. Before the Revolutionary War he had made his living on a whaling fleet out of New Bedford, Massachusetts. His great grandfather had come from England. Through his mother John Rouse was descended from that hero of history and romance- Miles Standish. Alexander Standish, son of the famous Miles, married Sarah Alden, daughter of John and Priscilla Alden. Their daughter Lorah Standish, became the great grandmother of Bathsheba Rouse. Thus the pioneer school mistress of Ohio was descended from two of the first families of America..."

"Shortly after our call on Alonzo Frouse, Belpre, Mrs TD Phillips, Marietta, said there is a book in Marietta College Lobrary, in which the journey of the Rouse family and others to Ohio, is given in detail, as related to Dr S P Hildreth by Mrs Bathsheba ROUSE Greene, Marietta...
"Parts relating to the Rouse family are here copied. It corrects come of Alonzo Rouse's records-LCP
"...[John Rouse] also retained a strong love for the land and habits of his childhood. After he had been in Ohio for some years, he used to say, 'He would rather have Joe Sampson's farm than half the state of Ohio'. This was a farm at 'The Long Plain' on which he lived many years as a tenant. It was tolerably productive, but no ways remarkable for its fertility- but showing the strong predilection of man for the scenes and days of his early years."
