MY wife bought a knife collection recently. Among the knives was a Swiss Knife with J H Rose Trucking on it. I grew up in South El Monte Calif. I remember J H Rose black Peterbilts parked on Garvey ave near Rosemead Blvd. There was a café/bar where the drivers hung out. I posted this reply after I read that "Gretchen" had a similar knife.

Hey folks,
Just stumbled on this and thought I'd comment. I grew up on the Rose Ranch in Leakey, Tx. My grandmother, mother, and father worked the ranch until it was sold in 1976. My Dad is James Pate if anyone remembers. Anyone ever been to the ranch?

New here - in fact just found this site when doing some research for an article on Jesse Ebb Rose, Jr. who died in 2007.

Ebb, as he preferred to be called raced several times in the Indy 500 back in the sixties; he was something of a celebrity in Houston.

His father J.H. Rose has been credited (hearsay only) with 'inventing' the lowboy trailer used in hauling large heavy equipment, which work falls well within the range of the J.H. Truck Lines capabilities and field of business. Wikipedia states only that the lowboy was invented in the 1920's which would be correct for J.H. Truck Lines.

Is there any good basis for the lowboy claim, or is the claimant mistaken?

bought a cute little swiss army knife yesterday at a second hand store. it has the old metal tweezer, plastic toothpick(old), 2 knife blades, finger nail tool, screw driver/bottle opener notch tool and the stub end of a broken tool that is a mystery. no metal loop for lanyard or keyring. said "jh rose truck lines" on the outside. lettering and design are metal and imbedded in the red knife surface. obviously well used. googled the title and found this thread. great story. wondering if anyone knows what the broken blade may be. love knives and this is a cool little thing. somebody had it for years.

OK! This is a long shot! When I worked for KW in the early 70's a super nice guy would come in with a K100 cab over with a KT 450 or 525 with an Allison trans. He was so big the truck had a really small steering wheel! One time we called his bank to get verification on a check and they said "it should be OK, he owns the bank!" Is this the same person?

wil and mary franzil they moved some old circus wagons from hillsbroul calif to circus world in orlando florida. the ROSE family was a great family to work for i wonder what they are up to these days , i heard ebb rose passed away in 07, he was the one the ran the indy car in the early 60s and the founder of J.H. ROSE TRUCK LINES. irv anderson

I know this is an old thread, and I have written to some members here, but I thought I would comment on some things that I know about.

My grandfather, WT Jamison, ran the bank in Dayton, Texas. He and JH or 'Jesse' were friends and remained friends their entire lives.

When JH thought he would like to start his own trucking company my Grandfather believed in him and gave him the money. They say there was nothing JH would not do for WT.

I believe the above must be true. After we were a little bit grown, WT told JH his grandson wanted to buy a horse and asked if he knew where to find a good one. He said no grandson of WT is going to pay for a horse and JH Rose himself gave my cousin a registered Palomino named Honey. ...I loved that horse. I have pictures of me, age 4, sitting up there so high grinning my head off. My cousin & that horse were heroes to me. My hero cousin became a very accomplished rider. He roped and competed for many years in Texas large rodeos.

JH's son Ebb Rose (Indy car racer) and my Dad were also good friends. Ebb once had my Dad & brother get on a private plane to Indianapolis to see an Indy race. Ebb and other people might have been on the same plane, I was little & don't recall. Ebb and his wife often invited my folks to their Houston home for lovely dinners. I even went myself once.

The Roses had a ranch north of Houston where they gave huge outdoor parties. I came across a picture of one and in the center ring lined up on horses was JH, Ebb, then my Dad and 2 guys. Only time I ever saw him on a horse. The Roses provided entertainment of horsemanship and I think a few horse races but I was too short to see. They also had things for kids to do. To me it seemed like a carnival. I almost remember cotton candy.

Mr Anderson mentioned a move of circus equipment to Florida. I wonder if the trucks came through Texas and put on a show at the Rose Ranch. I would not put it past that wonderful family to give back something nice to all the families who came. There were so many people there that many must have been employed by the company. All that I am sure of is JH Rose was a damn good man.

I found some old 8mm film labeled 'Dad, Jesse & Me -California Trip'. It was a trip that my Grandfather WT, 'Jesse' or JH Rose and my Dad took to California to see the office there. I think it was around 1953-4. I cut out all the parts of scenery and the three of them here and there. The film mostly features my Dad's finger but towards the end you will see my Grandfather, WT Jamison and JH Rose on the right. I love it when JH puts his hand on my Grandfathers shoulder. They were buddies.
