Location: on the South East corner of 485 Ave and 907 Road.
"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."
We have a second transcription for Old Settler's Cemetery with more information.
