This is the Vagle Cemetery (Private) located in Hazelton Twp., 3/4 of a mile west of the Juction of Highways #175 & #59. It is located on the north side of the highway in the woods north of the old farm site. At least twenty burials have been placed here and most have flat grave markers.

Refered to as the Nyren Burials. The graves are north of the large rock and by the large upright stone shown in the photo. These graves are inside the Lake Bronson State Park and are awkward to reach. Go north of the Town of Lake Bronson on Hwy #15 and turn right on 240th St. Continue east for 2.8 miles and at the point the road turn sharp left you turn sharp right onto a sandy trail that heads Southeast across the field. Continue until you reach the trees and turn right and you will face the park gate. Walk west past the gate a short distance and you will notice a trail on your right leading towards a large rock. The two graves are just past the rock and are marked.

This is Bronson Pioneer Cemetery, located 1 1/2 miles east of the Junction of Highway #59 and #10 on a rocky ridge overlooking Lake Bronson. A large park sign marks the location of the path to the site. The smaller sign shown above indicates the number and location of the graves.

This is the Grant Adams Family (Private) Cemetery. It was fenced recently and contains a dozen burials with one headstone. The rest of the graves are marked with iron crosses. Obtain permission before visiting the cemetery.
Located 2 1/2 miles east of CR#5 on #10, Proceed south, or right, on 325th Ave., to the second driveway on your right. The site is located midst thick brush and wood about a tenth of a mile in to the west.

This is the Johnson Family Farm (Private) Cemetery located 2 1/2 miles east of County Road #5, on #10, then turn right or south on 325th Ave., for 7/10ths of a mile which will take you to the south side of the Johnson farm woods, located on the east side of the road. The graves are located about 50 ft from the road. Only three of the grave outlines can be seen in the photo. There are five graves, the lastest one being from 1930, Carl August Johansson, great-grandfather to Lyndon Johnson. This is the most westerly grave. The next in order are Mrs Hildur Anderson, daughter of Carl, Carl's wife Anna Maria Lydia (Bengstsson) Johansson, the oldest grave (110 years) is for Carl's infant daughter Elin. The most eastern grave is Carl's son Emil Johansson.

The Oakview Catholic Cemetery is located a short distance northeast of Northcote, Mn. From the town, drive east on County road #4 and turn left on the first gravel road. You can see the cemetery ahead of you on the right side.
This cemetery was established in 1890 but was eventualy abandoned. It was recently restored as indicated by the sign I have included. One of our members
was involved in the work.

This Cemetery is in St. Joseph Township located 8 1/2 mile north of Lancaster on Highway #59, turn right on #52 on (gravel road) and proceed for half a mile to a gravel pit which is on your left. When you are looking north the cemetery is on your right, close to the road but on a steep bluff. It is marked by a tall wooden cross as indicated in the photo. The Cemetery appears abandoned as the barbed wire fence is down on all sides, the grass has not been cut in years, and only one grave marker is present. The words on the marker are; Baby - Lewis Leskiw - 1922. None of the other graves are marked.
