From Crookston at the intersection of Highway 75 and 14, go 9 miles south on Highway 14 and then turn west and go on gravel road for 1 mile. The cemetery is on the west side of the road.
This cemetery was on land that was donated by Helge Tofsly. This is a small cemetery that is kept in fairly good shape.
There is information on it in Cemeteries of Polk County, Volume 10, Red River Genealogical Society 1988.
There is one headstone that belongs to Harry Benard Tofsly where his toys, glass ball, and fire engine were on top of the headstone however in the past few years, the toys were chipped from the concrete and were stolen.
I walked this cemetery in Feb of 2002.- Anne Braun
