  1. 8.  Rose Otis Descendancy chart to this point (7.Steven7, 6.Rose6, 5.Anthony5, 4.Lawrence4, 3.Elizabeth3, 2.Edmund2, 1.Roger1) was born about 1677 in Cocheco near Dover, Strafford, New Hampshire; died on 6 Jul 1729; was buried on 7 Jul 1729 in Charlesbourg, Québec.

    Other Events:

    • Alternate death: 7 Jul 1729

    Notes:

    Rose Otis was her birth name. Captured by the Abenaki in the same 1689 raid on Cochoco, New Hampshire in which her father Steven Otis and grandfather Richard Otis were killed, she was taken to Québec and baptized Françoise. Multiple French records call her François Rozotty. She became a naturalized citizen of New France in 1710.

    Her precise identity was long in dispute -- was she a daughter of Richard Otis, and if so, by which of his three wives? Or was she a granddaughter? Two sons of Richard's son Steven, Stephen and Nathaniel, were known to have been taken captive and sent to Quebec, where they married and lived out their lives. (Nathaniel was rebaptized with the name Paul.) Could she have been their sister?

    This was finally resolved in 1988 when Sister Annette Potvin, a nun in Alberta, Canada, obtained a copy of the marriage contract between Jean Poitevin and Françoise Rozotty. The document describes her as "françoise Rosotis, daughter of deceased STINODIS and the deceased MARY OTOS, her father and mother, of English birth in the environs of Boston." "Boston" was a common term among Quebecois for most of New England, and "Stinodis" is a very plausibly what a French scribe would write when hearing the name "Steven Otis."

    This is all thoroughly documented in Roger W. Lawrence's 1989 "The Identity of Rose Otis" (citation details below), but somehow this information has never managed to make it across the border between Canadian and American genealogical scholarship. Richardson's 2013 Royal Ancestry still lists her as a child of Richard Otis and Rose Stoughton, who were really her grandparents. So does Gary Boyd Roberts's 2018 The Royal Descent of 900 Immigrants.
