Cemetery notes and/or description:
Located on the SE corner of NW 86th Street and NW Bailey Road, Rossville Township, Shawnee Co., KS.

This cemetery has also been known as Franklin Cemetery. The land was part of a grant received by the Atchison, Topeka, & Santa Fe Railroad from the U.S. Government. The certificate was dated 17 October 1869. In June 1881 the land was sold to A.S. Stanley, who then sold a portion of the land to Fred Franklin in the same year. For $30 Fred & Maria Franklin sold a parcel of land to a church to be used for a cemetery. Trustees of a deed dated 6 August 1885 were Benjamin Franklin, Silas Joy, William Hook, Isaac McCullough, and S.P. Zickafoose for the Olive Branch Chapel (United Brethren Church). The church was disbanded around 1923 and Rossville Township took over the cemetery.
