Brown Cemetery

 

Brown Cemetery was located in Section 12 of Rosefield Township...see note below...

This cemetery is being taken care of by people who have a summer house in what at one time was a school house. The old fence is still standing around the family graves, but one grave stone with G. H. S. on it is some 10 feet outside the fence. Copied by Alice Calligan & Virginia Schultz Sept 1, 1971. and transcribed by Janine Crandell in August, 2006.
