It appears that this is a very old cemetery (ended in 1870). It is located on private property, with a driveway to it for access. Presently it is a fenced-off area with a memorial marker or monument. The marker lists all the people that were buried there, but all original headstones are gone.

The following are the names of the Norwegian settlers buried in the Sever Temanson Cemetery -- interred during the period 1856-1870.
