St. Rose Church Cemetery


I have for you today selected stones from St. Rose Church Cemetery.  St. Rose is located slightly southwest of Springfield, Washington County, Kentucky.  St. Rose is where my mother was baptized, made her First Holy Communion and married twice.  Many of our ancestors are buried there.  It’s a beautiful church!

Montgomery, Born October 16, 1792, in Charles County, Maryland, died October 22, 1872, Washington County, Kentucky.  Benedict, the son of Charles Montgomery and Mary Ann Elder, was part of the Catholic contingent that came from Maryland to Kentucky about 1800 – a few before that date, a few afterwards.  He married Bianna Wight, also a Marylander, September 2, 1817, in Washington County.  They had a large family – 14 children!
