ROUSE, Henry R. - Borough of Warren (pages 679 - 681 *)

The Honorable Henry R. Rouse was born in Westfield, Chautauqua county, N. Y., in 1824, and was killed on the 17th of April, 1861, by the explosion of an oil well on his farm in Southwest township. He was the son of Samuel D. and Sarah Rouse, and received a good academical education in his native town, though it was gained almost entirely by his own exertions. In early life he was in very indigent circumstances, and was unable to raise even the amount of his tuition bills at the academy, yet such were his energy, diligence, and exemplary conduct, and so great the promise in him of superior abilities, that he secured the regard of his teachers, who took a deep interest in him, and most of them remitted his tuition. Having afterward become wealthy, he particularly remembered his early teachers, some of them in his will. Not long before his death, meeting one of them, residing in Westfield, Mr. Rouse asked him for the old tuition bills, and said he was ready to pay them; and he did pay them, principal and interest for more than twenty years. He was remarkably proficient in his studies, and displayed thus early the traits of character, the energy and the loving disposition for which he was noted in after life.

Portrait from History Of Warren County Pennsylvania

Having completed his academical course, he began the study of law in the office of Abram Dixon, of Westfield, but after about two years he relinquished his purpose because of a slight impediment in speech, which his diffidence led him to feel disqualified him for public speaking, though the impediment vanished as soon as he became warmed with the subject of discussion. In the fall of 1840 he removed to Warren, Pa., traveling most of the distance on foot, and having when he reached Warren but one small piece of money in his pocket. But he was gifted with indomitable energy, and perseverance, and fertility of resource, and seemed to feel no discouragement. The first winter he taught school in the village of Tidioute. Being obliged to collect his own school tax, and times being hard, he took his pay partly in shingles. Laying out the rest of his money in shingles, he put the whole on a raft and sent them to Pittsburgh, and with the proceeds the next spring purchased more shingles, shipped them in the same manner to the same market, and thus in a year or two was able to own a raft, and begin the accumulation of his fortune. Soon after he purchased an interest in a saw-mill, and produced his own lumber, and ran his own fleet of rafts. In company with R. M. Brigham he established a store at the village of Enterprise, which was built up largely by his exertions. Here he exchanged goods for lumber, and pressed on with such diligence and energy that in the course of fifteen years he became the owner of more than a thousand acres of valuable pine lands and a large farm which he had cleared himself. In the summer of 1859 his attention was called to the discovery of coal oil in his neighborhood, and with his usual sagacity and decision he set himself about the determination of its value. In October he opened a well on the Buchanan farm and on the Barnsdale tract in the vicinity of Titusville. Having satisfied himself of the value of the discovery, he proceeded to invest in oil lands, and with his partners became the owners of some of the best tracts in the entire region. His wealth now began to increase with almost fabulous rapidity, and the resources of his oil territory at his death were but partly developed.

In the fall of 1858 he was a candidate for political honors, and was elected by a large majority to represent Crawford and Warren counties in the Legislature of the State. His public duties were discharged with ability, with honor to himself and fidelity to his constituents The next year he was again elected to the Legislature, though his increasing business made it extremely difficult for him to absent himself from home.

Foremost among his many noble traits of character were energy and decision. He was rather small in stature and of a light frame, but the energy of his will seemed to be unbounded. He never knew fear, and with him to resolve was to execute. His public spirit was of the noblest and most unselfish kind. There was no enterprise by which the public was to benefited; the recources of the region developed; facility of intercourse increased, in which he did not prominently figure. He spent much time, money, and labor in opening and improving roads, constructing bridges, and helping on every work which tended to develop the wealth of this new country. How dear to him was the accomplishment of these is evident from his will, which appropriated one-half of his property, after the payment of legacies, to the construction and improvement of roads and bridges in Warren county.

Mr. Rouse was a man of much literary taste and culture, and for a business man was a great reader. The impulse which he received in this direction while in attendance upon the academy was never lost. He kept himself informed on national affairs, and had collected a beautiful library of standard works in history and general literature. He was moved by warm impulses, and fostered strong personal attachments. He loved his friends with his whole heart, and never forgot them. This love for his friends was probably intensified by his isolation from family attachments, as he was never married. He was continually showing kindness to families, and the children of his neighbors, making them presents, taking them to ride, and he surprised a number of them by legacies in his will. Many of his early friends were also thus remembered, and to each of the persons who picked him up when he was insensible, and carried him to a place of safety he gave a legacy of one hundred dollars. To the poor he was proverbially liberal, dispensing his favors with a lavish hand. The anecdotes of his timely and sympathizing aid are many. He never forgot that he was once poor, and he had a strong sympathy with indigent merit, always lent with an open hand to its encouragement, and in his will he showed the liberality of his heart by giving a large part of his princely fortune for the support of the poor of Warren county. He was loved by all who knew him, and in his death Warren county lost a most valuable and public-spirited citizen, his fellow-townsmen an energetic and a liberal-minded business man, the cause of virtue and sound morals a firm supporter, and the poor a sympathizing and most helpful friend.
