|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
The NE Quarter of Section 24 in Township 147 N, Range 91 W
Twin Buttes, Dunn County, ND.
This cemetery is unmarked. . It is approximately 4 1/2 miles northeast of Twin Buttes, ND on the Fort Berthold Reservation. The Fort Berthold Reservation is the home of the Mandan, Hidatsa and Arikara Tribes.This cemetery is fenced but had not been maintained. There were no visible signs identifying St. Joseph's Catholic Cemetery, however the old church building stills stands near by. Many graves at St. Joseph's Catholic Cemetery may have been relocated from other sites. These markers are cement blocks, approximately 5 inches by 5 inches square with a plastic-type plaque mounted on the top which makes note of the individual's name, and birth and/or death years when available. Some markers also indicate a cemetery by a single letter of the alphabet, and grave number. Many of these markers are too lichen populated to decipher completely or have broken and are now missing.
There are also at least 15 UNMARKED GRAVES that were identified.
