The Spirit Lake Beacon, October 27, 1881
Surnames mentioned: Blackert, Bergman, Smith

Rose Hill has not been active or maintained for many years.

In researching the cemetery through The Spirit Lake Beacon it is quite probable it was the first cemetery in the Spirit Lake area and that it was closed down and many graves moved to other cemeteries. As an example, "....John Uptagrafft was buried in Rose Hill cemetery, now abandoned, and there is no record of his body ever having been removed from there. Rose Hill cemetery was on the Arthur farm, joining Spirit Lake town on the south."

There are references in the Spirit Lake Beacon to Orr, Blackert, Smith and Arthur surnames as being the landowners where the cemetery is located.

Transcriptions At include Beers, Bergman, Redden, Uptagraff
