Burial Records at Internment.net

A Google search turned up as the top listing, a partial listing of burials at "Rosebank Cemetery" and these include last names (surnames) beginning with the letters M through Z.

The page is provided by Internment.net, a site that includes increasing numbers of burial records recorded online throughout the United States. The people that offered the burial records mentioned above are

  • Connie Fenimore at tazfan57@hotmail.com;
  • Jane Hoey at janeh@socket.net;
  • Karen Burdett at kburdett@ipa.net, and
  • RJ at rejeanazg@aol.com.

The entire list of burial records that Internment.net has posted online for Rosebank is located at: Rosebank/index.htm. Carol Brooks seems to be the individual that has contributed the greatest number of records to the online database for Rosebank and this includes the records of 2,650 people at the most recent update.

Ms. Brooks notes that cemetery records burned in the 1920s during a fire and that some burials have no records, accordingly. Some graves were unmarked, but senior citizens volunteered to walk through the cemetery and report to City Hall about graves in which they knew the buried individuals. It is quite a remarkable database, in view of the fire's destruction.

For additional records that might not yet be posted to the site, contact the Mulberry City Hall at phone number (620) 764-3315.

Burial Records Suggested via E-Podunk

At least 14 cemeteries lie in Crawford County, Kansas and it is possible that relatives and ancestors have been buried in a cemetery different from Rosebank or Rose Bank. In addition, Rosebank was formerly called Mulberry Cemetery, and possibly Crafton Cemetery before that, and may have been a Native American Burial Ground prior to that time. In fact, local Native American organizations might keep burial records from that time - notably Cherokee and Chippewa.

At least 27 cemeteries are within 10 miles of Rosebank and 4 are within 5 miles and these final 4 could be examined for records before going on the the remaining 22:

  1. Garden of Memories Cemetery in Crawford County
  2. Shirley Cemetery in Crawford County
  3. Smilie Cemetery, Crawford County
  4. Yale Cemetery in Barton County, MO

Check Internment.net for each of these cemeteries and their online records.

Other places to check for records and human memories would be the local library (Arma City Library) in Crawford County, KS and the Mulberry Homecoming Festival held in during changing dates, but often in springtime. Mulberry itself has fewer than 600 residents.

More genealogy information is located at this link at "The Little Balkands of Southeast Kansas."

Morman Family History Centers in Kansas are operated for many surnames. Call Mulberry City Hall to see if your family is included in one of them.

Congratulations, Patty, on another very fine Hub. I'm very interested in Family History and you did a fine job here. It is in these small towns, at the cemeteries and the public records of cities and counties like Mulbery where we find interesting information. I liked your Hub. Don White
