Location; The Roos Cemetery is located southwest of Lyons village, on the north side of County Road RS and east of Township Road 13-1. (NE 1/4, Sec 24, T9S, R2E)
History: The land the cemetery occupies was deeded to J.P. Roos in 1835. Local residents met at the nearby Maple Grove School House on 01 Apr 1854, formed a cemetery association, elected trustees and agreed to purchase burial land from Philip Roos. The body of Nehemiah Cone was interred at the site in Aug, 1854. Historians record this as the first burial at Rose Hill Cemetery, as it was first named, however markers with earlier dates are now found in the cemetery. In 1886, the cemetery was placed under the jurisdiction of the Chesterfield township trustees.
