First Mennonite Cemetery
Butterfield, Watonwan County, Minnesota

Lat: 44° 01' 17"N, Lon: 94° 46' 41"W
Butterfield Township, Section 2

Contributed by Sherryl Warren, Nov 2000, last edited Aug 09, 2010 [sky2note@yahoo.com]. Total records = 221.

To reach this cemetery, from Butterfield, drive north for 4 miles on County Hwy 5, turn right and continue for one mile. The cemetery is on the south side of this road at the first intersection.

This is a complete listing from the First Mennonite Church records. This rural church, with cemetery located behind the church, was begun by late 1880s Mennonite German Russian emmigrants. Some of the stones have inscriptions in German.

The information from the stones was compared with the cemetery listing to insure accuracy. This listing was completed in Sep 2000.
