The cemetery directions leaving Roseau going south on Highway #89 travel approx 14 miles to County Road #4. Turn left (east) on County Road #9 drive approx 6 miles, turn right (south) drive approx 5 miles. Watch for 120th St you will turn left (east) drive 2 miles, turn left (north) on 480th Ave drive 1 mile. This is a dead end, now turn right (east) drive ¾ of a mile, cemetery is on your right and is marked with sign.

The 1890 established date on 2 acres of land donated by Catharina Craighton. The Bethesda Church record book states place of burial for Charles L. Craighton would be at "The Pine Ridge Cemetery" which later would be called ReineTownship Cemetery.

The owner of this cemetery is the Reine Township Association. There is no church present. The cemetery was in very good condition & was mowed very neatly. In the northwest corner was the flag pole donated by the American Legion, was fenced by a chains draped from each spaced post. The cemetery caretaker is Paul Norberg. The cemetery can still be used for burials. Donations or perpetual care giving is welcomed.

A complete walk thru readings of all visible headstones completed transcript as of Dec 14, 2011. A digital camera has been used for pictures.
