Rosemond Twp is located in the SE part of CC and it bounded on the N by Locust Twp, on the E by Pana Twp, on the S by Montgomery County, and on the W by Greenwood Twp. The township name was derived from the fact that during the spring and early summer, the prairies of the area were covered with wild roses. 1860 Buckeye Prairie is a part of Locust, Rosemond and Johnson Twps. Its earliest settlers came from Ohio, the Buckeye State.
