LINSTEDT CEMETERY


There is a small rural cemetery in southwestern sections of Custer County, Nebraska, known as "The Linstedt Cemetery".  It is on the farm of Aaron Lindstedt, Route 1, north of Gothenburg, in Custer County - in the homestead pasture - burial site for about 13 known deceased persons.  The cemetery is not where Mr. and Mrs. Aaron Lindstedt were living in 1983 when they reported its existence in Wayne Township, but was north from their place about 3 miles - south of the Sells Valley Cemetery.  In 1904 this was the Gust Lindstedt farm in Section 32, Township 14, Range 24, in northeast area of Wayne Township - a couple of miles south of the Booker School house.  This Lindstedt Cemetery is apparently more or less a family cemetery and members of the Lindstedt pioneer family's generations are interred there.

The following information was supplied by Brian Bratten-Almquist of Ashland, Oregon:

There is a new grave marker placed at Linstedt Cemetery, placed there by neighbors and friends of the Linstedt family.  The Nels Bratten marker should be Anna Lovisa, wife of Nels Bratten.  The exact wording on the new grave stone is as follows:
