EMSLEY CATHOLIC CEMETERY, DAVISON CO SD

Tobin Twp., Davison County SD

NE 1/4 NE 1/4 Sec.28, Twp.101, R61W

Additions or corrections to: Andrea Sindt (bunnyden@santel.net)


The Emsley Community is located 5 miles west of Mitchell and 
12 miles south near the Douglas County border. The Assumption 
Catholic Church stands on the corner of Section 38 with the 
cemetery to the south in a neat fenced in area. A large metal 
gate graces the entrance, and a short distance beyond the gate 
stands a large memorial cross, placed here by the Oster family. 
The land was donated to the Church by Joseph Schoenfelder in 
1898. The first death is listed for the infant of Philip and 
Mary Tobin, also in 1898. The church was served by ministers 
from the Ethan parish until about 1970 when the doors were closed.
	The first church building was destroyed by fire in about 
1930. William Schoenfelder, followed by Peter Schoenfelder, 
(Grandson of Joseph) have served as cemetery caretakers, and 
recently (1978) a cemetery association was formed to provide 
future upkeep.  No map or plot record was found, other than the 
WPA Cemetery listing. From this listing and our own stone records
and measurements we drew a map. Early death records were obtained 
from the Ethan Catholic Church and from County records.
	Stones were read in June of 1978 by the Davison County 
Genealogical Society.
	Records verified by Peter Schoenfelder and Tony Oster.
An asterisk in front of a death date indicates that there is no stone.
