South Fork Lutheran Cemeteries
Fillmore County, Minnesota

These cemeteries belonged to the Hauge Evangelical Lutheran Church at South Fork. This church was organized in 1876 and was of the Norwegian Augustana Synod.

These cemeteries are located in section 12 of Preble Township, about four miles east of Choice, on County Road 13.

There are three cemeteries at this location. All are close to each other. Cemetery A is west of the church, Cemetery B is north, across the road, of Cemetery A. Cemetery C is next to Cemetery B.

There are several unmarked graves. A list of these unmarked graves and burials at other cemeteries is included in the alphabetical list. If I am quite sure that the person is buried here I have listed the grave as "unmarked". Others are listed as "unknown" but likely they are buried at South Fork also. This list was generated from the church funeral records. These funeral records don't start until Oct. 1895.

The tombstone locations was taken from a reading of the stones complied by Sarah Storlie in 1981 with an update by Helen Jameson in 1999.
