Originally, this was the Kindred Rose property.
Kindred settled in this area as early as 1831,
and was a well-known pioneer in early Greene county.
There is no marker left for him or his wife,
if there ever was more than a fieldstone to begin with.
Both are buried here, as are a number of family members.
These are the only stones left to mark the cemetery.
