Location of 9 Private Burial Sites

1. Family plot at Blumenheim NW 29-40-3 W 3rd. Going east along Blumenheim’s main street and crossing Hague grid road are 2 unmarked graves of Children. Mrs. Abram Janzen recalls seeing the mounds when she was still a young girl. She remembers (Deaf) Jacob Peters living adjacent to the site but doesn’t remember the family name of the children.

2. According to Abram Janzen, there are a few burial plots on the north side of the south access road to Neuanlage. Apparently a few deaths (Children) had occurred during the settling of the village and later the main cemetery was established at the north end of the village. Again the names of the first burials are not known. Any information would be valued.

3. Single plot, just east of the village of Gruenfeld, 2 miles north on NW1/4 of 22-40-5 w 3rd Jacob Guenther remembers that Mr. Herman Unger birth? – 1908 was buried there. Across the road from the Guenter Cemetery.

7. NW 16-41-3 W 3rd ½ mile north of Hague, ½ mile east and ½ mile north is the homestead of the Peters family. It is believed their 2 children were buried here before they moved to Mexico. Later a Hartz family lived there and buried their two children.
