Greenvale Cemetery / Union Cemetery

Greenvale township, Dakota county, Minnesota: section 1

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 is located about seven miles south of Farmington, Minnesota or just west of the town of Castle Rock along 280th Street or Carver County Road 86. The cemetery has regular care and is in good shape. It appears that many of the older burial monuments may have been replaced. 

The Dakota county cemetery records compilation lists this cemetery as: Greenvale (Union) Cemetery, established 1873. 3 acres Section 1, NE 1/4 280th St. W. & Dunbar Avenue.

Rev. Edward D. Neill's book "The History of Dakota County and the city of Hastings" lists the Greenvale Cemetery as Union Cemetery (page 387). To my knowledge these are the same cemetery. Rev. Neill also writes: '...Union Cemetery is located on the north side of section 1. It contains about three acres and was surveyed in June 1873. The first grown person buried in it was Thomas Hodgson. It now contains quite a number of graves... The cemetery originated in Castle Rock Grange, then holding meetings in the Union School House in Eureka (page 387).'

This cemetery was transcribed during 1996.
