Red Rose Cemetery

Waterford township, Dakota county, Minnesota: T112N - R19W, section 17

The complete transcription for this cemetery is available in “Cemeteries of Southern Dakota County, Minnesota,” by Debbie Boe.  Copies can be purchased through the website. 

I claim and reserve any and all rights to the works that I have compiled and created.  These pages may be viewed much like a library book, but I do not approve of any type of reproduction in any format.  Persons or organizations desiring to use the information contained within in my web pages MUST obtain my written consent. All information is for Non-Profit use only.

This rural cemetery has regular care and is in good shape. The cemetery is located one and one half miles west of Highway 3 along 300th Street West. Many of the burials rows do not line up very well. 

Some of these burials were likely transferred from the former Waterford Cemetery.

The Dakota county cemetery records compilation lists this cemetery as: Red Rose Cemetery. (Formerly called Rose Leaf). Land donated in 1856, 1 1/2 acres. In 1959 an additional 3/10th acre was purchased. Located NE 1/4 of Section 17. 1 mile east on Highway 3 on 300th St. West.

In Rev. Edward D. Neill's book, "History of Dakota County and the city of Hastings", he writes the following: Rose Leaf Cemetery is situated in the north-east quarter of section 17. It contains one and one-half acres of land, and was given to the town by Dr. Z.B. Nichols, in 1856. The first person buried there was George Swaile, who was browned in the Canon River (page 494).'

To the best of my knowledge Red Rose and Rose Leaf Cemetery are one and the same.

This cemetery was transcribed during 1996.
