St. Mary’s Catholic Cemetery, Atwater, Minnesota

This cemetery is located 2 blocks north of Minnesota State Hwy 12, on the west edge of Atwater, Minnesota.

From cousins that live in Atwater, Atwater has never had a Catholic Church. The congregation met at St. Patrick’s In Kandiyohi, but were buried here instead of Kandiyohi.

Comments on transcription: Parentheses () around the last name inicates that there is a large stone for the Family with the surname, and only first names are mentioned on the headstones. Dashes indicate that a the individual may still be alive or a death date was never put on the headstone. A surname with spouse first name indented on next line, indicates a shared headstone.

I tried to group individuals in this report by family groupings of headstones, to hopefully make separation easier.

If I omitted names, or incorrectly misinterpreted information, I apologize. Please contact me for corrections.
