Description: 

Mr. Compson's letter just says that Rosa Coldfield "was buried" (141) - it doesn't say where. There is a family cemetery at Sutpen's Hundred, but
given the fact that Rosa puts Judith's grave as far from Sutpen's as that graveyard allows, it seems extremely unlikely that she herself would be buried there. We assume therefore that Rosa's grave is in the town cemetery that appears in so many other Yoknapatawpha fictions.
