|MANDAN: (Morton County)|
Cemetery is located about four miles west and two north of Glen Ullin.
In a 1970's published directory of Morton cemetery locations, we found the cemetery with no markers and fenced separate from the rest of the land. I tried doing research on how and when it got started and who it might contain, but all of the letter writing etc. did not produce much information. It is located in the very NW corner of the SE1/4 29-139-89, Eagles Nest Twp, with GPS coordinates of 46-49/55N, 101-55.76W. It is located about a mile and a half west of the intersection of Hwy 139 and 401/2 St and about a half mile north of 40 1/2 street. It is recorded in the latest deed transfers of the curent owner Kelvin Gietzen as "less one acre for cemetery". See pages 17 and 221: Daphne Drewello and George L. Barron, "MOST Cemeteries of Morton County, ND", 2001.
