|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
This cemetery is the 2nd cemetery and has several unmarked (no stone marker) burials. The original cemetery was located to the SW of town in what was a pasture for many years until the current owner plowed it up several years ago, maybe 10. There are no known records of the original cemetery. However, there are family stories of ancestors who talked of their relatives/parents etc. being buried in the original cemetery. To my knowledge, no physical evidence has been found but there is a annotation in one of the church books, written in Dutch. As with this, the "new" cemetery, in the beginning many burials had wood markers and a prairie fire swept through the cemetery, destroying the wood markers, thus causing some of the research problems today.
