Rose Public Burial Grounds - Greensboro Township

    This little cemetery, or what's left of it, was deeded to the public for use as a public burial grounds on 5 Jul 1855.It seems that the village of Greensboro was populated mostly by Quakers and they had a restriction pertaining to grave markers and family plots. In order to be buried together in a family plot and to have grave markers the non-Quakers needed a cemetery. So Jesse Rose, a non-Quaker started this cemetery. His family plot, five sites, is located in the southwest corner of this one-acre cemetery. Over the years the south and east edges have been plowed up into the cemetery and the stones have disappeared. To day all that remains is about one fifth of the original cemetery.
