|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
Old Rosehill Cemetery is located between 9th and 11th, on Plum Street in Mount Carmel, Illinois.
J. Ralph Roberts and Roy D. Short appeared before the city council and presented
a proposition for the merging of the Rose Hill cemetery and the Odd Fellows' cemetery,
or the city's Odd Fellows' sections of the Rose Hill cemetery, for the purpose of
forming a cemetery association and thereby adding numerous improvements to the cemetery,
such as putting in walks and drives. Many have offered liberal donations to further
this work, as was shown at the meeting.
To push plans in this direction, a committee was named to have charge of the work.
The committee consists of Rev. J. Ralph Roberts, S.A. Mayne, Roy D. Short, Louis Walter,
George Cleveland, and Ben Townsend.
On motion it was voted by the council that the city attorney shall draft an ordinance
providing for the building of concrete walks, by the property owners, along the west
side of Main street from Fifth to Ninth, where concrete walks have not been constructed.
