|Peter was his commonly used name. Church documents refer to him in the latin form of Petrus.|
Not very much is known of the origins of Peter other than he was married in Aldenhoven and probably lived there after his marriage and that he died there. He was probably unskilled. He was of the Roman Catholic faith.
There are a few other Rosen's listed in the Aldenhoven church registers and as far away as Ahrweiler and Altenahr (over 100km south-west) but no positive connection with this Peter has yet been made.
|Maria Sibylla was baptised on 26 October 1731 at St Martinus Roman Catholic Church in Aldenhoven. Her parents were Jacobi Rinck and Joanna Malmelthier. Her godarents were Clement Malmethier and ?[2,9].|
|Peter and Maria Sibylla were married at St Martinus Catholic Church in Aldenhoven on 14 April 1761[1,3,8]. The witnesses noted in the church register were Winand Somer and Franz Rinck.|
Peter died on 7 October 1794 and was buried in the town cemetery on the same day[5,7]. According to his burial entry, he died of dysentry.
