Rose was one of nine children, the daughter of Pablo Briones, and the granddaughter of Gregorio Briones, the grantee of Rancho Baulenes in 1846. At the time of this interview, Rose was living in what had been the one-room schoolhouse she attended 88 years earlier. She describes life with her family around Woodville and Bolinas in the early 1900s. From 1974 to 1984, Carla Ehat, with partner Anne Kent, and later Genevieve Martinelli, interviewed a broad spectrum of Marin County's long-time residents, from ranchers to politicians, including descendants of early pioneer families. This program was co-sponsored by the Marin County Free Library and the Moya Library in Ross. The resulting archive, consisting of nearly 300 recordings and their corresponding transcriptions, are housed in the Anne T. Kent California Room at the Civic Center branch of the Marin County Free Library.
