Rose Hill Cemetery is a large, active cemetery owned and operated by the Deerfield Township Trustees. On September 4, 1868, Peter W. and Sarah Wikoff  sold 9 7/8 acres for $1.975 to the Deerfield Township Trustees (R. M. Cox, S. M. Cassiday & Joseph A. Dodds) after residents voted to raise $2,000 by taxation to establish a cemetery.  Eight acres were added to the south end of the cemetery in 1909 and and additional 17.55 acres were later added to extend the grounds to the south section line. It is believed that Charles H. Shurts who died 26 August 1868 is the first person buried here. The first ROI entry is in 1874 for John Irwin. The cemetery is the final resting place for well over 1,000 veterans.

    • Our thanks to Candy Tucker for the many many hours that she worked with Rose Hill Cemetery to provide the Warren County Genealogical Society with a photocopy of the Cemetery Register of Interments and Lot Cards, all of which can be viewed at the WCGS Resource Library.   Candy also obtained an electronic Burial Register from the cemetery which has been combined with the information from Volume 11 to create the burial index being used on this site. There are numerous duplicate names in the list at this time which will be eliminated as photographs are added to this site. New burials are also being added to the index as photographs of those stones are put on line. Candy Tucker has also completed photographing all extant gravestones at the cemetery that have not done by others. These will be put on line as time permits.
    •  In 2010, Adam Anthony and his team of assistants photographed all extant gravestones in Sections A1, A2, A3, A4 & A5 for his Eagle Scout Project.
    • Additional gravestone photos have been contributed by Dorothy Cooper, Joe Dixon, Michael Elliott , Joe Haas, Glenn Horton , Don McAdams, and others. As time permits, all of these photos will be added to the Rose Hill Cemetery portion of the "Warren County Virtual Cemetery Project" and will eventually be incorporated into the new cemetery books planned by the society.
