Little Dane Church Cemetery
Saint Onge, Lawrence County, South Dakota

Sec 31, Saint Onge Twp
Lat: 44° 31' 31"N, Lon: 103° 40' 14"W

Transcribed by Maggie Rail, Oct 02, 2002, edited Feb 12, 2010 [mrail@asisna.com]. Total records = 171.

From Hwy 34 heading south from St Onge, take a left or east onto Jensen Rd and continue for about 1.5mi. The cemetery is on the left side of the road.

Little Dane Church Cemetery sits on land donated by Christ Callesen, and was consecrated in 1887, about the time the Scandinavian Evangelical Lutheran Church organized, with meetings held at the Asbury Schoolhouse and in homes until a church could be built, on the land by the cemetery.

During the depression, in 1929, the church disbanded. Then on Oct 05, 1969, which was the 80th anniversary of the building of the church, a newly restored church was dedicated to the pioneers. Annually a Memorial Day service has been conducted, in thankfulness for the heritage of faith those who settled here left to their heirs. All burials in the cemetery can be traced back to these early pioneers either by birth or by marriage. This service is only open to family of those buried in the cemetery.

Little Dane is a small rural cemetery, in what is now called St Onge, which I found to be very well maintained and still in use only for burials of previously purchased lots. There are no more empty lots for sale.

The cemetery has 5 Sections: A-South, A-North, B-South, B-North and West. Each section is divided into Lots which begin from east and progress west.

I visited and surveyed this cemetery on Sep 23, 2002, transportation furnished by my husband's cousin, Joe Allender. I have compared with the Sexton files from which I have added the locations in the cemetery. Entries with and asterisk * are those I found no stone for.
