Cross Lake Cemetery

Queen Township, Section 27, Polk County, MN

(Newer Location)

The Cross Lake congregation was organized November 22, 1885.  The early members were Anton Olson, Ira Jacobs, Hans J. Rone, Halvor Halvorson an Ole O. Gropen, P.L. Jesness, Johannes Lade and Gulik Iverson.  The first pastor was the Rev. N. Heierman.  The church was built in the 1890s and in 1912 it was moved to Section 27 of Queen Twp.  The church closed about 1981.


Thankyou to Ann for walking the cemetery, transcribing it and for the pictures taken  August 2002, also for walking it again and re-transcribing it in 2003.
