Dissolution of Rose & Warren firm

In the late spring of 1832, the business partnership between Chauncey Rose and Chauncey Warren was dissolved. The goods store which they operated together marked the first important business venture which Chauncey Rose made in Terre Haute. In 1826, Rose was the moving force behind the beginning of the store and Warren worked as his clerk. After Rose furnished an additional $10,000 of capital into the store, he entered a partnership with Chauncey Warren in 1829. He had been a successful businessman when he operated a store in Parke County alongside Moses Robbins, a fellow Connecticut native. Many of the goods in the Rose & Warren store were received from New England locations, notably New York and Pennsylvania. Both Rose and Warren were New England natives. Rose was born in Wethersfield, Connecticut in 1794 and Chauncey Warren had been born in New Hampshire in 1800. When the partnership was dissolved, Rose had sold his stock to Warren who continued to make the business a success until his failing health forced him to sell the business to his brothers.
