NOTE: from Val Thomas

A flat white stone with printed letters still visible for "L.C. shot October" has gone missing. Many recorded names have been lost over the years.

The land was donated by Norm Flaten’s grandfather, August Soderberg in 1907. There were 10 shareholders, each paying $10 in order to have the plots surveyed. The 10 shareholders were: L. A. Swedburg, L. O. Holmstrom, August Soderberg, L. J. Nelson, J. H. Guest, Ray Williamson, A. W. Swedburg, John A. Backlin, Ran Guest and Andrew Anderson.

Thank you to Norm & Vie Flaten who informed my husband Doyle and me about this cemetery and showed it to us.
