Hole, Ole Pearson, Conrad Hendrickson, Mrs. Nels Zetterberg, Harry Anderson, Edwin Johnson, Oscar Hill, John Hagen, Ruben Knechtel, Hilda Oak, Mrs. Nicolene Jensen, Charly Samson, Oscar Sole, Abe Anderson and Mr. Kahl. There is no Baptist church in McIntosh at this time.

Note from Darlene, dated May 2004:
Re: The transcription above by "Ann" August 2002--
She has a John Ira Hill, 06-11-1914 to 2-10-1915, that I did not locate. She also included a Wilson Monument and Thulen Monument, as well as an "A.L.R." I did not locate those and have not included them in the 2003 transcription above. Birthdates and death dates for Sam & Helen Hendrickson, as well as death date for Emma Hole, are from her notes, as I did not locate that information myself. (Emma's marker was more overgrown than most.) I also have entered the middle initial for both Harry Anderson and Raymond Pearson from her information. All other information unless noted above is based on my own notes and photos from my personal walk through the cemetery August 2003.
Darlene has taken digital photos of all the graves in this cemetery. If you wish a copy, please contact her privately by clicking on her name: DARLENE DIERKES
