Dewey Twp, T160N R44W Section 29

Contributed by Marjorie Broten, Apr 23, 2010, last edited Apr 27, 2010 [mjbroten@wiktel.com]. Total records = 148.

The cemetery directions leaving from Greenbush on Hwy #11 driving west for 8 miles you will come to the cemetery on your right hand side (north) just off the highway. The large cemetery sign reads The United Free Lutheran Pauli Cemetery.

The established date 1898 on approx 1 31/32 acres of land acquired from John and Amoley Peterson. This cemetery had been known by the name of The Peterson Cemetery year of 1904. The Deed reads Petersons to the "Pauli Menighed" year of 1905. The 2nd Deed shows they now have 2 acres for Pauli Church and Cemetery. The church was moved out and now resides across the road at the Pelan Pioneer Park.

The United Free Lutheran Church holds the ownership at this time. The cemetery is in good condition, and is still used for burials.

I did a complete walk thru, reading all of the visible headstones. This is a complete transcript as of Apr 10, 2010. A digital camera has been used for pictures.
