Descendants of Richard Dotson Sr 1752 to ca.1847, is an Ancestry tree, I am an Editor on. I wanted to help others looking for their trees to be able to find their ancestors.
Saving History is a fun and full filling way to help others. I am unable to go take photos because of physical limitations, this is a great way to help.
Good Hunting!

RE: Thank You
You're very welcome for the help.

Rosehill cemetery isn't really for low-income and minorities but it was definitely the cheaper alternative to Rosedale when they were separately owned cemeteries. Now they merged into one. Rosehill has several large open sections with many more unmarked graves than marked. Rosedale has no such sections. So it did develop that way. For all I know it might have started out as the low income cemetery at its beginning but I don't know that. My parents and maternal grandparents are in Rosedale in marked graves while my paternal grandfather is in Rosehill in an unmarked grave. He died during the Depression so there was no money for a marker. I only recently found this out.

Good luck in all your research.

RE: Thank You
You're very welcome for the help. Good luck with your research. As to Rosehill, it does seem to me that Rosehill is the inexpensive choice between Rosehill and Rosedale. Rosehill has more large wide open sections where there are very few markers. That means unmarked graves. But that also doesn't mean anything like Potters Field either. Rosehill just has large sections of unmarked graves, and my own grandfather is one of those.

RE: Thank You
That age and the grave location was taken from the cemetery's name search feature at

If you type in the name and search Rosehill as opposed to Rosedale, that information will come up.

The person who made the page has made thousands from this cemetery using just the info from the name search. That is why he/she never has a date of birth. Always uses the date of burial as if its a date of death. And puts in the age number as if it is inscribed on a headstone. That practice alone has misled many people into thinking there has to be a headstone.

RE: Thank You
You're very welcome. I was pleasantly surprised to find that metal grave marker where it was. Not every grave in that section has one.

RE: Thank You
You are most welcome. Sadly the OH weather is not kind to headstone inscriptions.
