The History of the Roses of Kilravock was printed for the 1970 Gathering held at Kilravock and written by Elizabeth Rose of Kilravock. Googling will find much as well.

Her tombstone is hard to read. The 1795 could be 1805 but this makes little sense as John Rose married Henrietta in 1796. That is why 1795 is stated as her death date.
"Sacred to the memory of Janet Clunis, spouse of John Rose, gillie, at Holm, who died 17 Oct 1795, aged 20 years - also to the memory of Henrietta Rose, second wife, who died aged 55 years. She was a women of exception, pious and her death much regretted by her friends and aquaintances (sic)."
Note: A 'gillie' is a professional fishing and hunting guide.
