From the intersection of Highways 11, 89 & 310 at Roseau, you will drive east on Hwy 11 thru the city of Roseau, approx 6 miles from that point you will come to County Road 129 on your right hand side (south) turn here and drive approx 3 miles, you will than watch for Goos Farm sign on a large rock, you will need permission from the landowner, prior to going thru his property to get to the cemetery.
This pioneer cemetery started in the early 1900s noted to be on one-half acre of land owned by the Claus Goos Homestead 1896 family. It is on private land owned by Earle Goos, in good condition, and is no longer used for burials.
I walked this cemetery on Nov 19, 2009. This transcription is complete and includes the reading of the 2 existing stones. I have used a digital camera for pictures.Legend:
