St. John's United Church of Christ

Benton township, Carver County, Minnesota: T115N-R25W, section 17

The complete transcription for this cemetery is available in “Cemeteries of Western Carver County, Minnesota,” by Debbie Boe.  Copies can be purchased through the www.lulu.com website.

The cemetery is well kept and in good shape. The church and cemetery are located along Highway 212, just north of the small town of Bongard, Minnesota. The town of Bongard is very small and consists mainly of Bongard's Creamery and Cheese Factory. The cornerstone of the church has St. Johannes Gem. A.D. 1883, 1969 and rebuilt 1937. I was told that the church cemetery records were copied into their 100th anniversary / centennial book.

In the "Compendium of History and Biography of Carver and Hennepin Counties, Minnesota" [1915] edited by Maj. R.I. Holcombe and William H. Bingham, they wrote: ‘St. John's German Reformed Church, on the northeast quarter of section 17, was organized 2 January 1866 ... The school and cemetery connected with the church were established soon after the church was organized.’ (page 243).

This cemetery was transcribed during 1991.
