25 Jan 2015 - I am currently working on uploading photos for Rose Hill Memorial Gardens

I have logged about 34+ hours in Rose Hill and Mount Carmel.

Rose Hill Memorial Gardens
As of: 25 Jan 2015
1436 - names I've entered
3231 - 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 January. 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.

Graves R Us
RE: Lydia Ann Haynes Herman
Thanks, Ron. I wish there was a way to find out who originated the initial request. The photo I posted only showed the location where we knew Lydia was buried. I'm glad for the descendants that Lydia now has a marker.
