||Rose Hill Cemetery
171 S. Mason-Montgomery Road
Deerfield Township, Warren County, Ohio
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
Elliott , Joe
Glenn Horton ,
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.
