When Rose O'Neale Greenhow drowned at Fort Fisher, her personal effects were collected and some of these ended up at the Cape Fear Museum. We made arrangements before leaving to meet staff members Barb Brown and Timothy S. Bottoms at the museum. Barb graciously arranged the materials and Tim gave us the grand tour. Tim spent almost 3 hours with us going over the Rose information and walking us through the back rooms of the museum where the Rose information and displays are currently in storage. We must take a moment here to thank Barb and Tim for their personal attention to our requests, and for taking time out of their busy schedules to provide us with  a memorable and enjoyable experience.

Among the items at the museum were information confirming that Alfred Moore Waddell was Little Rose's Ward after Rose's death. There was also a photo of Rose with an unknown gentleman. We believe he may have been Lord Wharncliffe. Then there was a picture of Little Rose, and a Brady photo that I've never seen published before. I've obtained permission to post these photos upon receipt in October. Will let you know when I get the copies from Tim.

Also shown below is a diarama reenacting the night Rose drowned when her boat overturned off the port of Cape Fear. It's quite beautiful and is about 4 feet square in size.
