Contributed by Brian Hass, Oct 14, 2004 [brian_m_hass@hotmail.com]. Total records = 466.

The Komstad Cemetery is located west of the church, which is on the west side of the University Road (Clay County's 465th Avenue), two and a half miles south of Highway 46 (Clay County's 297th Street). The cemetery is located west of and on the opposite side of the road from the Southeast South Dakota Experimental Farm.

Komstad Cemetery is very well maintained as is still in use. The cemetery is surrounded by a fence, with three gates on the east side. The northern and southern borders are 56.5 yards in length; and, the western and eastern borders are 117 yards in length. The cemetery's northern border is marked by ten evergreens in addition to a couple of other trees; and, its western border is marked by twelve evergreens in addition to five other trees. Only a single tree was located on the cemetery's southern border; and, none were located on the eastern border. Most of the cemetery was filled with graves.

October 23, 1874, the first recorded meeting of the Komstad Covenant Church occurred. On May 6, 1875, five acres of land was offered as a gift for building the church; and, Hans Quarnberg donated timber for the sills.

John G. Anderson was reported to have donated land for the cemetery to the church in 1874. The first mention of the Komstad Cemetery was reported to have not been made in the records until November 1884.

A meeting was held in 1901 in which the board was instructed to draw a map of the cemetery, with lots selling for no less than ten dollars or no more than twenty-five dollars. The entire area was surveyed and plotted. In 1924, the north one third of the cemetery was added to the original plot; and, a memorial endowment was reported to have been established that same year.

The very first contributor to the fund was reported to have been Hattie Taft, who made the contribution in memory of her husband, who died during the first World War. The principle was invested; and, the interest, in addition to donations and lot sales, covered the maintenance of the cemetery. In 1929, the evergreens to the west and north were planted; and, two of these were destroyed in a 1980 hail storm. Volunteers met at "work day" twice per year to perform much of the cemetery maintenance. In May of 1960, an additional sixty feet was added to the cemetery.

The following listing includes transcriptions of genealogical data from all visible grave markers up to Jan 23, 2004.

The electronic copy of this survey was proofread against the notes on December 30 and 31, 2003 and on January 2, 2004. A printout of the transcription notes was compared against the 1989 Komstad burial records on January 7, 10, and 12 of 2004. Any discrepancies between the notes and the burial records were checked against the grave stone inscriptions during a visit to Komstad Cemetery on January 23, 2004. If grave stone inscriptions disagreed with the 1989 burial records, the information in the inscriptions was given preference.

The obituaries of Andrew Erickson and Viola (Hanson) Thompson in the "Beresford Republic" were checked to clarify two points of confusion. Andrew Erickson's obituary verified that two markers found at Komstad were for the same man; since, one was a military marker without any dates. Viola (Hanson) Thompson's obituary confirmed her married name and proved that the 1989 burial records had mistakenly listed her by her maiden name only; and, this was verified by her grave stone inscription.
