#30.00.06 Rose Cemetery
On Saturday, November 17, 2007, student members of the Bellport High School History and Environmental Clubs surveyed the Rose Cemetery and cleared a number of gravestones some of which were previously recorded as missing.
In this picture, students are at the same location as #30.00.5, above. A monument was uncovered near to the location, of the same general shape as the stone to the right in the 1981 picture. It was of Phebe Desire Rose. There were, however, many fragments of broken monuments. A gravestone consistent with the shape of the stone to the left in the 1981 picture was not found and may be permanently lost.

... as an activity of the 2008 restoration project, a grid of 10 ft x 10 ft squares was laid out. The location of each head and foot stone was documented with measurements to the grid lines and photographs. In order for repairs to be made, some stones were removed and taken to the stone mason's shop. To the best as can be determined at the time, they were reset to what were believed to have been their original locations.

Oliver was a son of Scudder Ketcham and Elizabeth Rose, and a grandson of Captain Nathan Rose. He died from drowning. On the gravestone also can be found an inscription for his brother, Timothy Ketcham (#30.01.1.2), with a death date of 19 Sep 1819. He also died from drowning. Timothy also has a seperate monument. I suspect his name was first inscribed on this stone, then a separate gravestone was later erected.
