Until this is clarified, all St. Joseph’s of Oak Park Twp interments will be recorded here.  If we discover there more than one cemetery we will split the registry into the appropriate, separate, records.

Driving directions: From Oslo go east on Hwy 1 for 1 mile – turn left (north) on State Hwy 220 NW for 15 miles – turn left (west) on Hwy 317 for .5 mile – turn right (north) for 1 mile on 495 Ave NW – turn left (west) on 380th St NW for .5 mile – cemetery is on your right.

Saint Joseph Cemetery is also known as the ‘Red River Cemetery’. The land for this cemetery was donated by the Frank Zelewski family. There was once a church at the site but it is no longer there.

The cemetery is well kept but does not appear to be used for burials recently. It is laid out in a small lateral configuration running North/South. The stones are facing east.

I walked and read this cemetery in one day in the summer of 2005, using my digital camera. I have transcribed from those photos, which include all existing and legible stones or markers. I am willing to share photos, and Walsh Co, Polish and Czech Genealogy information if anyone wishes to contact me.
