Covenant Cemetery
Also known as:  Swedish Mission Cemetery

  • 52008 Fairfield Ave, Rush City, Chisago County, Minnesota, 55069 USA
  • 250 Memorials added (98% photographed)

This COVENANT CEMETERY is located approximately two miles northwest of Rush City, MN on the northwest corner of the Fairfield Road (CR 54) and 520th Street intersection.

This cemetery was mislabeled in the 1994 book titled Burials in Chisago County by Earl W Leaf. In that transcription these interments were listed under the Oleen Free Mission Cemetery of Nessel Township.

The transcribed names in that book are in fact interred in this COVENANT CEMETERY located in Rushseba Township, Rush City, MN. All visible markers and monuments have now been photographed and uploaded.

An audit of the previous transcriptions was done for each memorial. Five unreadable markers remain to be identified and updated. There is the possibility of additional unmarked graves in this cemetery. Church and/or cemetery records have not been located or reviewed as of 1-Sep-2012.

The real cemetery named Oleen Free Mission and its interments were not included in the 1994 Burials in Chisago County book. You will now find that cemetery and its memorials listed on Find-A-Grave as the FREE MISSION cemetery, located in Nessel Township of Chisago County.
