The Weeks Cemetery is located in Bentinck Twp, six miles south of Westhope, Bottineau county ND then five miles west, and one mile north on the prairie trail.
The Weeks family donated the land for this cemetery. At one time there was a Presbyterian church located just to the south of the cemetery.
The cemetery is kept in very good condition after the Presbyterian Church in Westhope got some volunteers together and cleaned it up and put up a new fence. The Huber family has kept it up for the last several years up to this date.
I walked through it on Nov 17, 2002. That is all of the visible graves. There may be more unmarked ones. There was no record found showing the gravesite locations when the Westhope church cleaned up the cemetery.
