Kelly Clarkson’s roots uncovered

July 20, 2013
The Marietta Times

The first American Idol, Kelly Clarkson, made a trip to Marietta and Coal Run earlier this year. She was on a mission to trace her roots, at least on her mother's side. She was in company with television producers who were filming a new show called "Who Do You Think You Are?" This show will air on the TLC channel July 23rd at 9 o'clock. It has been known in the area since her visit that her roots go back to Hon. Isaiah R. Rose of Coal Run. The television crew was spotted filming his burial marker at Round Bottom Cemetery, using huge flood lights because they arrived after sunset. How Kelly's ancestry traces back to this area has been a mystery for some time now. Little has been told about the subject, probably because people are supposed to watch the show. An investigation was made for this article and in about four hours the mystery was solved.
