|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
In 1904, Herschel Alexander's body was returned to Dawson Springs from Arkansas for burial. There was no suitable place for burial in the existing cemetery in town. Herschel's parents, Mr. & Mrs. Jonas "Bush" Alexander, donated land to the city for the cemetery, reserving a lot for themselves and a lot for each daughter.
The wall and other improvements to Rosedale were completed by the Works Progress Administration (WPA) in the 1930's.
