(2a) 24 Nov 1821, "Belair," Prince Georges Co., MD. (3) A descendant of Gov. Benjamin Ogle. Never married: (2b) Death: (2b) 23 Dec 1914, Baltimore, MD. (2) 1844: By his will her father Benjamin Ogle left to his daughter Rosalie Caroline "any room she may choose to occupy at Bell Air house during her single life." Her brothers George and Richard to each pay her $1,500. (NOTE: Apparently they were to pay it upon the death of her mother, when the land was to be equally divided among them, since they received no other specific bequest.) She chose a room on the 2nd floor, 17x20 feet, on the southeast corner. (2) In her will, her mother Anne Maria Ogle left her "the choice of all my Furniture at Bel-Air... to make her Bed Room compleat; the same to be selected by herself, without any Set or hindrance whatsoever, accorning to her own taste and pleasure, plus one slave woman & increase of another." (2) 1871, 16 May: Belair, in Prince George's Co., MD, was offered for sale. Thomas Munford and Henry A. Tayloe, executors of William H. Tayloe, were the highest bidders for the property. The conditions of sale were that Rosalie Ogle was to retain the right to a room in the Belair house as long as she was single, and that she be paid by the purchasers the $1,500 due her from George Ogle, as specified in her father's will. (2) 1871, 21 Jun: After receiving notification that the sale of Belair had been ratified by the court, Henry Tayloe wrote to George Ogle, "We have thought it best to send an agent to take possession... We would be very glad if you will give Mr. Stratton an inventory of what is to be received by the Executors... Our agent will board with you temporarily or will take you to board with him. He has a wife and will be compelled to have a room." Henry expected to visit the plantation in the near future "when we hope to make some arrangements which will be agreeable to Miss Rosalie Ogle." (2) Henry Tayloe wrote to George Ogle, "From what Mr. Stratton writes me of your treatment of himself and Mrs. Stratton I am compelled to remind you and (the) ladies of your family that you are only an occupant of Bell Aire on sufference, while our agent Mr. Stratton is the true occupant and possessor of the place and I demand that you shall give him rooms for his comfort and convenience instead of compelling him to live in one room as you have done. I deposited $1,500 in Mr. Cox hands for Aunt Rosa... which I presume she has received. She is entitled to her room of course and we have no intention of interferring with her in any way." (2) 1871, Oct: Moved to Baltimore with her brother George Ogle, since the overseer of Belair and his family had become residents of the house, and she found it impossible to stay there alone with such "disagreeable people." (2) Mid 1870's: Rosalie Ogle brought suit against Henry Tayloe and Thomas Munford charging that she had been denied her legacy of a room in the Belair mansion. She wanted an annual allowance to provide the rental of a room equal to the one she abandoned. Tayloe and Munford countered that they had "never requested Dr. George C. Ogle or the complainant to quit the said dwelling house," and they had "offered Dr. Ogle the use of the house as long as he chose to remain there but refused him the use of the farm." After several years' absence, Rosalie still retained the key, and the room was opened only when she sent, at various times, for her belongings. At the time of the suit, some of her furniture was still there. (2) 1877, 22 Jun: The court decided against Rosalie because the defendants had met the conditions of the sale and done nothing to bar her from her room. (2) Appealed her case to the Court of Appeal and lost there as well. (3) c.1905: Of Baltimore, MD.
