Cemetery notes and/or description:
Formerly known as the Birch Coulee Mission or Bishop Whipple Mission, the original mission church was destroyed by fire during the Dakota War of 1862. During his later years, Andrew Good Thunder donated a portion of his land for the rebuilding of the Episcopal mission. The mission was then given the name "St. Cornelia's Church" in honor of Bishop Whipple's first wife, Cornelia Wright Whipple.

Since 1891, the historic St. Cornelia's Episcopal Church has been serving the Lower Sioux Indian Community, Redwood and Renville counties. The church and cemetery are located just off County Road 2 at 38378 Reservation Highway 101. The phone number for the church is 507.697.6433.
