Arthur James von Rosenberg

arthur-james-vonrosenberg

I am way too late adding Arthur's obituary to this blog. For that I offer my sincerest apologies. Arthur was one of the important members of his generation in the family, specifically for his contributions to our understanding of the early part of the history of the von Rosenberg family and in trying to separate fact from fiction. In addition, he was a genuinely kind man who left a big impression on your humble webmaster.

Arthur James von Rosenberg passed away back in October of 2020 and has been deeply missed.

We are saddened to report that Dallas Ann Barnes passed away in Mesa, Arizona, on January 2, 2022. Ann was instrumental in furthering our knowledge and understanding of the von Rosenberg family for our generation, the pinnacle of which was her coordination of gathering information for Book III of The Von Rosenberg Family of Texas. She was instrumental in your humble webmaster's entry into the family and association, as well. In the middle of the first decade of the 21st century, she reached out to me after having found my personal family tree web page and invited me to give a talk at the Reunion on the Fallier family. I was hooked on the family and the reunion from then on.

Ann, may you rest in peace.
