    Corpus Christi Cemetery is located  almost directly across the road from the church in Deerfield twp, about 7 miles west of Medford Minnesota. The church is located on the north side of Steele County Road 12 in the south west corner of section 8 and the cemetery is located on the south side of Steele County Road 12 in the north west corner of section 17 in Deerfield twp in Steele County Minnesota. The cemetery is maintained and well kept.

      The cemetery has a hedge on the entire north side next to the road, except for the 15 ' center grass drive opening near the center.  The general size of the cemetery is about 250' east and west X 100' north and south with open areas on the west and east and south sides and a  narrow border near the hedge with no burials.

     The burial rows are about 12' to 15' wide. I started recording at the most western row and called it row 1 and recorded all rows from the north to the south so as to associate families. Row 2 was the row just east and so on to row 4 ju st west of the 15' center grass drive. The row just east of the 15' center grass drive is row 5 and then row 6 until row 10 at the east side of the cemetery. Recorded north to south from the hedge.

         osp = on same plot.
        onp = on next plot.
         oss =on same stone.
        vhtr = very hard to read.
      umgs = unmarked grave site.
