This cemetery is platted and the survey is recorded in the Steele County Recorders office in Owatonna in July 1907 (200'x116') as a private cemetery and the family plots were listed as:

John Janssen- Herman Schindel- Rudolph Rosenau- Fredrich Boege – Herman Rosenau- HJ Brockmiller- Marie Lutgens-Wihelmin Woker- William Wilker-Wm Enzenaur- Louis Robran- Louis Rabe- George Ebeling- John Ahlers- E Drache- Mrs George Enzenaur- A Klatt- Ed Werdin- A Schmidt- G Ahlers- A Lemke- Wm Engel- Peter Pump- Henery Abbe- Henry Steller- John Nelson- G Mudeking- CH Wilker - Fr Mueller- (2 Plots) Sable Mueller- Ed Werdin- F Steffan- G Ahlers- Fr Gertje- Elise Bathel- John Kroupp- RobtBeir- Wm Woker- George Enzenaur- Wm Mundt- Henry Stendale- Fred Eggers- John Lense-- Henkeysifgerr-  Hary BAthel- Wm Beckman- FW Beckman- John Ribbe- H Boege----

Also the NW corner of this cemetery is called RHODES CEMETERY on the plat and I estimate (8 umgs (unknown)in this area. This information is included as an additional list of possible names of persons buried but not marked. These listed as owners of plots in 1907, may not themselves be buried in this cemetery at all or markers could be lost.

Most of the names and some of the language inscribed is German. An old concrete wall part way along the east side of the cemetery. Fields on three sides of this country cemetery.
