I decided to delete my photos/comments of Aeannchen von Tharau, because it is probably a mislabeled rose, but do not seem to be able to do so?

I did that, it worked with the newer ones, but the remaining 4 seem to just reload and do not get removed.

P.S.I also cannot link them in a post it seems, but hat might be because links generally are disabled?

A poster at the gardenweb suggests that this rose might be the lost 'Anna Marie' by Peirce, bred by Pierce but attributed to Samuel Feast.

It looks similar to Baltimore Belle There also seems to be some confusion about Aennchen von Tharau and Eurydice, but those probably are the lesser candidates, considering APG is found in US?

What I grow as Aennchen von Tharau , supposedly an alba/Ayreshire hybrid, looks in foliage very like an alba, and nothing like APG.

My Tolstoi finally is in his teens and pretty big. Very enjoyable rose, stays clean no spray, cooperative with training, vigorous, blooms reasonably long, about a month at least (considering the weather, I am close to the North Sea coast, so usually cool summers). Little thorns, blooms shatter, sets hips. In the cold weather old canes turn red-ish in color.

Blooms, in size and shape, remind a bit those of Caroline Testout or Constance Spry or Paul's Lemon Pillar. Color is more similar to Constance Spry, just does not bleach in the sun like Constance. Habit is also a bit similar to Paul's Lemon, just more flexible and so far more bushy.

Has anyone considered 'Jean Lafitte' as a possible identity for this rose? It was found in two locations in CA which are several hundred miles apart, so it likely is not a chance seedling.

What I can see from Jean Lafitte photos, it looks more like Tolstoi (aka similar to Constance Spry or mm Caroline Testout size-shape wise), just paler pink/peach. Also habit seems to be similar, large flexible canes, and then the rather short blooming laterals.
