De Witt County
|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
Rose Cemetery is located in Creek Township section 9, about one mile south of and off of Hwy 10. It holds many old gravesites, the earliest I could locate was 1852 but many of the stones that are unreadable look as though they date much earlier. This cemetery is fairly well groomed but is in need of some TLC to the older stones, many are broken and leaning and there are some on the edges that are in danger of falling. The north side is on a knoll and the stones there are at a angle heading towards the road.
