Blom Twp R49W Sec 25

Contributed by Jodi Sides, May 31, 2005 [toogirls2000@yahoo.com]. Total records = 78.

This cemetery is on the corner of 478th Ave and 195th Street about 1/4 of a mile south of Toronto, South Dakota.

This is a small well kept cemetery owned and maintained by the Leganger Lutheran Church. Judging from the dates on the stones, it began in the late 1890s and is still being used today. Contact: 655 Main Ave, PO Box 337, Toronto, South Dakota. Phone is 605-794-2601.

I walked and read this cemetery May 26, 2005. This is transcribed from all existing tombstones.
