We were one of J.H. Rose biggest customers at National Supply Co manufacturing drilling rigs and other oilfield products.
I hunted at the ranch in 70's and seem to recall Mr. Pate. Great times at the ranch.

I sent you a email with his name. I will post it here too. His name is Cecil Fesperman.
He had Foghorn Leghorn on his truck.

My husband and his business partner bought the Trinity River Rose Ranch (or what was left of it) in 2001. He's heard stories about the parties that were thrown there. Legendary.

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.
