Rosa (?)1

F, #26053, b. circa 1895
Birth*circa 1895 Rosa was born at KY circa 1895.2 
Marriage* She married Herbert McKinley Bragg. In the WWI draft registration for Herbert Bragg, his nearest relative was listed as "Mrs. Rosa Bragg, Dothan, WV". No marriage record has been found, and no other Rosa Bragg has been identified, so it is assumed she is his wife. The 1920 census shows Herbert's wife to be "Basie"; this is likely a spelling error of Rosie (many spelling errors from this enumerator).1 
Residence5 Jun 1918 Herbert McKinley Bragg and Rosa (?) resided at Dothan, Fayette Co, WV, on 5 Jun 1918.1 
Census*6 Jan 1920 She and Herbert McKinley Bragg appeared on the census as head of household at Mossy Pct, Fayetteville Dist, Fayette Co, WV, on 6 Jan 1920.2 
(Witness) Census17 Apr 1930 Rosa (?) appeared on the census of 17 Apr 1930 in the household of James Calvin Pegram and Willie Jane King at Mossy Creek, Fayette Co, WV.2
