|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
Half of this cemetery property was donated by Gottfried Hagenstein & half by Christian Sperber, who were adjoining neighbors, to be used by the fledgling congregation of St. Peter's Lutheran Church at Elysian Township, Le Sueur Co., Minnesota. The Hagenstein part of the property was never used and now has reverted to farmland again. But Gottfried Hagenstein himself is buried in this cemetery. None of the Sperbers ended up being buried there. It is located on Stavenau Lane. A few of those buried in this cemetery have cenotaphs (newer memorial stones) in nearby cemeteries, but as far as is known, none of the bodies were moved.
