Location: High on the hillside along the road going out the North West corner of Anoka between the Peter Thurstenson home site and the School house.

"My home used to be about one mile north of Old Settlers and my grandfather, Peter Thurstenson was in on the beginnings of the Trinity Lutheran Church in Anoka (their home is still one of the few homes still standing in Anoka but is in the process of collapsing). Since you don't have names listed for these cemeteries, I am providing what I copied from the markers for you to add to your information if you so choose."
