Cemetery Description

There is one burial here that people know of.

Reference information from Cemeteries of Cass County (North Half) Red River Genelogical Society 1988, used by permission.

This is one of the earliest burial places in Cass County. When it the Red River Genealogical Society originally recorded this in 1971, they found the place to be neglected and the headstone broken into pieces. Since then, the burial site had been cleaned up and repaired.

The burial site is in a park like setting with a bench, a log fence, and trees. It is a nice place to visit now. Mr. Vaa's wife is buried in Lower Maple Cemetery which is about 2 miles northwest of this burial site.

What makes us Different?

Single-sourced, not crowd-sourced

Each transcription we publish comes from a single-source, be it the cemetery office, government office, church office, archived document, a tombstone transcriber. Other websites already do an excellent job of crowd-sourcing a single cemetery together. But genealogists also need to see the original records from a single source. That's what we offer.
