The family of Jack and Katherine Thomas is proud to dedicate these “Rose Hill” cemetery burial records to our parents. Jack and Katherine spent over a decade researching microfiche documents, burial records, and obituaries, and combing the cemetery to further their efforts in compiling a complete record of burials in Rose Hill.

The official city book kept by sextons had only five thousand names. Jack and Katherine documented over fifteen thousand burials. This publication breaks down each section of the cemetery by lots and individual plots. They documented all burials within each plot though which grave contains each individual may not be marked.

Jack and Katherine were lifelong residents of Macon and loved the history of Macon, and the people and places around the South. They started this project with the desire to identify all Civil War veterans buried in Rose Hill Cemetery and obtain markers from the Veteran’s Administration to place in Soldier’s Row. After the VA discontinued that program, Jack continued researching Veteran burials and eventually expanded his research to include all burials in the historic cemetery.

The Thomas family is thankful to Rose Hill Preservation & Restoration Inc. for taking on the project of digitizing the book. Their efforts will make this wealth of information available to genealogists and history lovers

Their original book can be found in the genealogy section of the Washington Library in Macon, Georgia where many hours were spent on the research.
