This cemetery is located north-east of downtown Young America. It is right next to a large Lutheran cemetery off of north-east 5th Avenue. They are separated by a driveway.

This cemetery appears as though there may have been a church or other building in the south central area of the cemetery. There does not appear to be any burials in this part of the cemetery. I have asked if there is a burial map of this cemetery. To my knowledge there is not.

The St. Patrick's Catholic congregation and the Ascension Catholic Church congregation in section 15, within the city of Norwood, are related and part the same congregation. I was told some of the St. Patrick's burials may have been moved to the Ascension Catholic Church Cemetery at one time.

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: 'In 1865 Rev. Father Stern recruited a small Catholic organization in Young America Village and services were held irregularly for some time.  In 1880, when the fine church at Norwood was completed, the Young America congregation began attending the new church of their neighboring village. (page 246).'

This cemetery was transcribed in 1990.
