On June 10, 1908, John Reynold Fredrickson sold three acres to Swedish Mission Church of Darling in NE1/4 Section 35 Township 130 North Range 30 West. On January 30, 1914, a plat was filed which contained 0.83 acre for cemetery of the three acres. On November 10, 1932, the Swedish Evangelical Mission Church, Darling was incorporated. A church was built on the site and it was dismantled and moved to Randall, Morrison County, Minnesota about 1944. The congregation ceased operation in the middle 1960s and the property in Randall was sold on March 19,1975. The church still stands on the property (2011).

The cemetery was shown on an old USGS Map as the Old Darling Mission Cemetery.
