This is a MAP REFERENCE LIST. All individuals listed are said to be buried here. Those people listed as "possibly" means the lettered reference to location of gravesite where the person is listed is possibly the gravesite where the person was buried. This is a revised version of a list prepared in 1987 by M.R. Sather (no relation).1 This map and list were prepared on site with the assistance of Deborah Sather, who has been familiar with the cemetery for about 60 years.

1 Notes from and about previous list: William Samstad, Huldor Samstad, Gorena Samstead should all be buried here according to Herman Holm. Louie Peterson may be buried here, according to previous list. However, his funeral was held in Badger and he may be in Badger City Cemetery. Previous list states that a Mrs. Weber, who died in 1923, is buried outside the northern boundary of the present cemetery.

2 Letter designations refer to map of graves - information on this cemetery held by United Free Church of Greenbush, Minnesota

3 Hansine (Plot G) – Change of spelling and change of date of death are per her daughter-in-law, Deborah Graff Sather, who lived with her.
