Cemetery notes and/or description:
The Gackle Cemetery, established in 1906 by Gackle pioneer George Elhard, was originally named Elhard Cemetery. George's son John P. Elhard was the first death and interment. In 1925 action was brought about by A. H. Haut to improve on the conditions of the cemetery. George Elhard offered to turn the cemetery over to the village of Gackle without cost to create a municipal cemetery. Evenually a cemetery board was organized, and a constitution and by-laws were drafted and aproved, The village board was named "The Gackle Cemetery Association" and recorded in the office of the Register of Deeds in Napoleon, ND, the county seat. It was registered as required with the State of ND as No.0245. Land was added over the years, and the sign at the gate was erected in 1943. The official name now is Gackle Cemetery. Many books put in the word 'City' probably to avoid confusion with other small, nearby cemeteries. Based on history published in Gackle Diamond Jubilee: 1904-1979, Gackle, North Dakota
