The Bethel Mennonite Church traces its beginning to 1892,
but the congregation is no longer active and the church building (as shown)
has been moved to the Historical Museum at Freeman College in Freeman South
Dakota. The Rose Hill Cemetery was a formal part of the church program
and it continues to serve the needs of the community.
The Rose Hill information database consists of 3 parts.
This information was prepared by Ken Tiahrt (firstname.lastname@example.org) with the
generous assistance of the cemetery sexton and may be freely copied by

A map of the cemetery showing the individual lots in relationship to the adjacent McCook County Roadway, 443 Avenue, gives the user a physical setting.
A listing of the burials at Rose Hill Cemetery – Section 32 – Grant Township – McCook County, gives the individual names in order of lot number, and site in the lot. This listing also gives the date of birth and date of death when available, as well as a notation that identifies veterans when such service is known.
The user should note that the sites are numbered clockwise in the lots beginning in the northeast corner of each lot with 1-4 in the easterly row and 5-8 in the westerly row.
Each photo is marked with the lot and site number. That is, “19-3” on a photo indicates that the monument is on Lot 19, Site 3. Use your browser return icon to exit from a photo and go back to this page.
