The Penturen Catholic Cemetery (has been referred to as the Saint Jacobs Apostol Parish, Saint James, and Saint Joseph) est. 1916, located in the Unorg Elkwood Twp Sec 36, the name coming from the many elk that had located in this township, due to the coverage of wooded lands.

The many first settlers came in the early 1900s to live here and are buried here. The State of Minnesota began a resettlement program, in the years of 1934 to 1936 this area would now be turned over to The Beltrami Island State Forest, as the people would need to move out of Sec 36.

The cemetery is good condition, maintenance done by family, other interested persons, now owned by the Beltrami Island Restoration Society donations are welcome. Contact Eunice Lund [lundfarms@wiktel.com]

A complete walk thru, reading all visible headstones or markers, some are marked only by crosses these records came from the previous articles from the RCH Book 1992 done by Eunice Lund and myself, complete reading as of Jan 08, 2009. A digital camera was used for pictures.
