Zion Cemetery
Acton, Walsh County, North Dakota

Lat: 48° 26' 27"N, Lon: 97° 12' 40"W
Acton Twp, NW 1/4 Sec 10

Contributed by Marty C. Byzewski, Sep 03, 2006 [sherlynmeiers@invisimax.com]. Total records = 91.

This Cemetery is located about 34 miles North of Grand Forks ND. From Grand Forks Drive north on the I29 to the Grafton Exit. Head west 1 mile and turn north and go 2 miles. The cemetery will be on your right.

This cemetery was established on Jul 25, 1887 by German Lutheran settlers who attended the Zion English Lutheran Church in the town of Acton, ND. and surrounding area, located east of Grafton on the Red River. Once the railway bypassed Acton the town was abandoned. The oldest stone is from 1885.

I walked and read this cemetery on Aug 20, 2005 using my digital camera. I am willing to share photos, and Walsh Co Polish/Czech Genealogy information if anyone wishes to contact me.
