The Roseberry Cemetery

The Roseberry Cemetery is a small family plot on the former Roseberry farm 
located three miles east of Stella near Indian Creek. 
The farm is now part of the Longacres Farms, Inc., formerly owned by Lela Northrop?s father. 
Much love is shown for the ones buried here by the nice stones placed at the graves. 
The plot is enclosed with a good fence and a little grove of trees shelter the graves. 
Family members visited the graves until one by one they also found their resting place. 
Chalmer Roseberry is the last to visit the cemetery, to my knowledge. 
He too, has passed on and is buried in Macedonia Cemetery. -By Lela L. Northrop. 

There are five graves in the plot, namely:
