Driving Directions 

From junction of Hwy 930 and Hwy 10/Hwy 970, follow Hwy 970 8.2 miles; turn left on Swauk Prairie Rd and follow 0.3 miles and turn left on dirt road (please note map shows Ballard Rd W but cemetery is accessed from Swauk Prairie Rd just past Ballard Rd W)


This is a country cemetery. Most areas are cleared and accessible but be careful walking thru cemetery. There is a dirt road that circles around and thru the cemetery. The oldest marked grave was from 1894 and the most recent burial was in 2015.

    cemetery records

    A free online library of cemetery records from thousands of cemeteries across the world, for historical and genealogy research.

    Clear Digital Media, Inc.

    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.
