Assumption Pioneer Cemetery
Florian, Marshall County, Minnesota

Lat: 48° 27' 49"N, Lon: 97° 40' 45"W
Augsburg Twp, Sec 35, SE 1/4

Contributed by Marty C. Byzewski, May 26, 2005 [sherlynmeiers@invisimax.com]. Total records = 38.

The Cemetery is located about 3.5 miles northwest of Florian MN. From Florian head north on 270 Avenue NW for one mile. Turn left (West) on 400 St NW and drive 2.25 miles when you will reach a big rise in the road with a coulee on the Right. At the top of the rise you will see a road on your right which runs north for about 1/3 of a mile. When the road ends you look to your right and you will see the cemetery on a high point of land.

This cemetery was established June 1, 1820 and was used until the Village of Florian MN built a new church in 1902 with a new cemetery. The first burial I found in Florian is dated 1902. After this Assumption Pioneer Cemetery was abandoned.

The Cemetery is maintained by the parish and is a square about 50' by 50' surrounded by a wire fence. Only three stones are visable as most of the internees had wooden crosses, which have long passed. I could only read one of the inscriptions scratched into the cement.

I walked and read this cemetery on May 25, 2005 using my digital camera. I am willing to share photos, and Walsh Co, Polish and Czech Genealogy information if anyone wishes to contact me.

What makes us Different?

Single-sourced, not crowd-sourced

Each transcription we publish comes from a single-source, be it the cemetery office, government office, church office, archived document, a tombstone transcriber. Other websites already do an excellent job of crowd-sourcing a single cemetery together. But genealogists also need to see the original records from a single source. That's what we offer.
