Zion Lutheran Church

Benton township, Carver county, Minnesota: T115N - R25W, section 27

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.

This cemetery is located west and south of the town of Cologne, Minnesota. As you look at the cemetery, to the right (south) is the newer cemetery which is very well kept and still in use. To the left (north) is a large 3 sided monument; one side is the name of the church, another side has founded in 1857 Pastor Fr. Kahmeyer; erected in 1863; erected in 1880; dedicated 6 June 1954. The third side is a memorial to the people who were buried in the original cemetery. The burial monuments were removed from the original cemetery a number of years ago.

The memorial plaque for the original cemetery contains a name only listing of the burials. However, the names were grouped by year of death.  The years of death were then sorted and grouped as follows: 1857-1870; 1871-1876; 1877-1882; and 1883-1889. If (A), (B), (C), or (D) is listed before an entry, these letters refer to the memorial plaque. (A) is for 1857-1870; (B) is for 1871-1876; (C) if for 1877-1882; and (D) is for 1883-1889.  I was told this original cemetery was near the area where the memorial monument is located. This area is now a well kept lawn.

In the "Compendium of History and Biography of Carver and Hennepin Counties, Minnesota" [1915] edited by Maj. R.I. Holcombe and William H. Bingham, t hey wrote: "Zion's Evangelical Lutheran Church, down on Beven's Creek in the southwest quarter of section 27, was organized in 1856 ... " (page 243).

This cemetery was transcribed during 1991.
