Cemetery Rose photos

I found this sweet little rose growing along the edge of my great-grandparents grave in a country cemetery in Hampton County, SC.

This photo is of the piece of the rose I have growing in a pot. The plant in the cemetery is much smaller since it receives no fertilizer and only rain for water. The plant sends up lots of suckers from the roots.

How old do you think it is? Meaning, how long ago do you think it was planted?

If it was recent (1990's) Victorian Spice is a possibility.
