Rose Hill Cemetery Re-Visit

We decided to head up to Rose Hill Cemetery on Easter Sunday to talk a walk in the lovely weather.   We always love Rose Hill as it is such a beautiful place to just relax and look around.  

As we walked, I snapped some pictures hoping that I didn't already have them in my vast collection of Rose Hill images and as luck would have it, I didn't!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


Our first stop is at the grave of Amzi Atwater.

Born: November 9, 1839, Mantua, Ohio
Died: March 20, 1919, Bloomington, Indiana

He served in the Civil War in 1864.  He enlisted for a 100 day service in the 132nd Indiana Regiment under Colonel Vance.  After his service in the war was ended he came home to Indianapolis.  In 1882, he made a trip to Europe where he visited the ruins of Pompeii and Herculaneum and climbed Mount Vesuvius.   Later he returned via a week trip to England.  In 1904 he became a professor of Latin at Indiana University, though it was an emeritus status that had no salary.  His last duty at the university was to deliver the baccalaureate on June 19, 1904.  In 1905, he and other citizens formed the Monroe County Historical Society.  By 1913, he spent most of his days at home with his books and occasionally delivering a sermon at the nearby Christian Church.  

He was married to Cortentia Candance Munsion Atwater (1838-1919) on August 8, 1870 in Mentor, Ohio.  She is buried with him at Rose Hill Cemetery, Bloomington, Monroe County, Indiana.

She is the daughter of Edward Spencer Munson (1808-1873) and Sophia Cowee Munson (1810-?) who are descended from the Munson family of Connecticut.  They were close friends of the Garfield family of whom President James Garfield was a member of.  Both are buried in Mentor Municipal Cemetery, Mentor, Lake County, Ohio.

She had one younger brother:
Spencer Munson (?-?) - buried in Mentor Municipal Cemetery, Lake County, Ohio.

They had two children:
Eva Munson (?-?) - unknown (died in infancy)
Munson D. Atwater (1873-1931) - buried in Rose Hill Cemetery, Monroe County, Indiana.
