Contributed by Reggie Watson, Sep 03, 2008, last edited Sep 19, 2008 [reggiewatson@neo.rr.com]. Total records = 81.

Directions from Elkview: Take 79N towards Clarksburg 15.4 miles, take CR29 exit 25, toward Amma .4 mi, turn left onto Big Sandy Creek CR 29 2.5 miles, turn left onto CR 21 / 13 / Osborne Mills Rd./Thorofare Rd. Continue to follow Osbornes Mills Rd. .8 miles, turn right onto CR29/ Osbornes Mills Rd./Rolling Hills Rd. .4 miles, turn right onto CR29/ Osborne Mills Rd. .1 miles. End at Sandy Brae Golf Course. Cemetery is located on outskirts of golf course just to right of property.

This cemetery was established in 1846 or earlier as community burial ground. Earliest stone dated 1846. There are 36 marked graves and about 31 unmarked graves. Originally it was named for Rolling Hills Church. Now it is also associated with Sandy Brae Golf Course that was built about 30 years ago, and sometimes called the Sandy Brae Cemetery.

I walked this cemetery in Jun 2006 & Oct 2007. Info taken from pictures I took and compared with Cemeteries of Roane County published by Roane County Historical Society and also WPA reading of Jul 05, 1940.
