20 Apr 2015 - I am currently working on uploading photos for Rose Hill Memorial Gardens

I have logged about 38+ hours in Rose Hill and Mount Carmel.

Rose Hill Memorial Gardens
As of: 20 Apr 2015
1627 - names I've entered
3461 - total for Rose Hill

I have taken some of the Rose Hill names from the 1930's W.P.A. Cemetery Registration Project, and from the county cemetery books. If you find any mistakes, let me know so that I can fix them.

A word of explanation on the names I have entered for Rose Hill.

A lot of my new memorials I created were taken from the Harrison County Iowa cemetery book index. I matched the cemetery book index against the names already on Findagrave, and then entered memorials for those not already on Findagrave. The cemetery book index had no dates, so I just entered the names. I will add the birth and death dates as I upload the gravestone photos.

During the summer and fall of 2014, I took over 2000 photos for Rose Hill. I photographed about 1/3 of the cemetery, and have already begun uploading those photos. Quite a few have already been done, but the rest will be done here soon.

I should be finished with Rose Hill by the end of April or May. Things are going slower than I anticipated because I have way too many other things I have started working on. I have kind of put the Rose Hill stuff on hold, but will get back to it some time soon.

I apologize for there being no dates on a lot of the memorials, but that will be fixed over the next month or so. Please be patient with me on this.

If you see a memorial that has no dates or photo, and would like that done now; write and let me know. I will upload it immediately per your request.

Byron Franklin Bond pic
I can't find his name anywhere in my spreadhseets of pics I've taken, which is odd. Anyway, go ahead and add the pic you have, with the disclaimer you mentioned in the caption. I'll be going to the cemetery tomorrow, probably, and can check in the office for the plot info to add.

Clyde & Mary Fellowes
Hi Ron,
Thank you so much for the great pictures of Clyde and Mary Fellowes' headstones. I realy appreciate you taking the time to look for them and for taking such a close, clear picture of the markers. Now if I can only remember where they fit in my many family trees, I can probably close out my research on them.
Thanks again,

Mary Wilmott
Thank you for the suggestions to Mary's memorial, which I accepted. I also transferred her memorial to you because I have no connection to her. If you don't want her memorial for any reason, feel free to transfer her back to me. Regards, Charlie
