Funeral Card Friday: James Rosa Sr


This funeral notice announces the death of my great-great-grandfather, James Rosa Sr.  He was born in Vuren, in the Gelderland region of the Netherlands on the 16th of September in 1840.  The family settled in Hamburg, Calhoun County, Illinois around 1853.  His descendants live there still.  He died May 24, 1904 and was buried two days later at the Indian Creek Cemetery in Hamburg.

  1. What a treasure. Do you keep it in preservation material or is it on display? In any case, you are fortunate to have such a wonderful piece of memorabilia.
