|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
The Omemee Cemetery is located at the SE corner of SW 1/4 of Section 3, Willow Vale Township 160 N. Range 75 W. in Bottineau County, North Dakota. It is one mile west of Highway 60 on county road 18 or one mile east of the Omemee townsite. Angus Kippen bought this quarter of land in the late 1800's from a Minneapolis Trust Company. No one knows why this site was chosen for a cemetery, used mostly for the families that were members of the Presbyterian Church in Omemee.
Angus Kippen's son, Charles, and wife, Helen, live on the farm across the road from the cemetery. For years there was never a marker to identify the cemetery. However, Charles Kippen had brick gateposts with Omemee Cemetery lettering built in 2009.
As you head North into the cemetery driveway, Block 1 is on the right. Block 2 is on the left. These two blocks each have 63 plots in them. North of Block 1 is Block 3. It has 42 plots in it. There are no burials in Block 4, the center of the cemetery, since this is a turn-around area for vehicles. Block 5 is north of Block 2 and Block 6 is north of Block 3. Block 5 and 6 both each have 42 plots. Some purchased plots have not been used, and some plots are still available for purchase.
If you have a loved one and/or family member buried in the Omemee Cemetery and would like to contribute to the cost of the gateposts or care of the cemetery, please contact Charles and Helen Kippen at email@example.com.
