LYON COUNTY DESECRATED CEMETERIES
With growth and progress of time, certain things are lost. EVEN our past...
I understand that the following gravesites have been destroyed over the years due to disinterest and negligence of others.
Coon Creek Baptist Cemetery Abandoned)
Section 33, 3/4 mile west. Above Russell Cemetery
Easter Presbyterian Cemetery (Abandoned)
Section 14, County Road 5, 4 miles South of Lynd
Island Lake Presbyterian (Abandoned)
Section 34, Northeast corner of section
Old Marshall Cemetery (Abandoned)

If you feel the destruction of old pioneer cemeteries is illegal...you are correct! Unfortunately, the farmer must be caught within two years of
when the work was performed. This act is a felony. Please write to your state Senator or the Minnesota State Archaeologist and tell them that this must be stopped.
