     This cemetery is located in Lemond Twp in the east church yard of the Zion Lutheran Church at the S/W corner of section 27. The west side of the church yard is next to Steele County Road 28, 1 1/2 miles south of Steele County Road 4. This cemetery is well kept and maintained and is fenced on the north and the east sides only.

      I recorded the burials in 4 rows running north and south and started with row 1 as the row to the west and recorded from south to north and then moved to row 2 just east and recorded from north to south and then to row 3 and back north etc. I recorded in this sequence for association of the families.
