Arcola-Roseland Cemetery - interesting residents

Classification: Cemetery
I am maybe 2/3 done uploading pictures of the older tombstones in Arcola-Roseland Cemetery to "Find A Grave".
I find it amazing that there is so much diversity of birthplaces.
I find it interesting that so many individuals were buried there by families who then moved on or went back to where they came from.
The area seems to have been very popular with people from New York, Michigan, and Kansas.
