The cemetery is easy to find. It sets on East Cemetery Street, off of South Military Street. Military is the main street for Mulberry.
Rosebank was started in 1906 and was once called Mulberry Cemetery. The old cemetery consisted of the the side north of the entrance and dates back to before the Civil War though the stones are unreadable now for the most part.
Rosebank now covers over 40 acres and is used by several small towns in the area, including Mulberry, Arma, Franklin and the rural area. I noted at least two births before 1800 in the listing. This is well maintained cemetery still in use.
The records burned in a 1920s fire so there are many burials that there are no records of in existance. The City Hall did a wonderful job of reconstructing most of the records, having the older people of the area walk the cemetery and show where unmarked family members were buried.
A historical note I just ran across said that the land was once an indian burial site, and that there may have been an older cemetery by the name of Crafton Cemetery, before 1887 here. Wondering I could add this as a footnote.
"Again Please if you know of an unmarked grave, contact me or the City Hall. They are a wonderful group to work with and very helpful.
This is a work in progress - more records to be added soon.
