Kyseth Memorial CemeteryThe SE Quarter of the NW Quarter of Section 12 in Township 142 N Range 92 W
Dunn County was settled by many true pioneers. At each cemetery you will find countless stories of the relationships between the people interred there. Many are family members, friends and long time neighbors. One such example is Kyseth Memorial Cemetery founded in 1886.
Captain Hans Siverts and his wife, Thrine, came to the Dakota Territory in 1886. Their ranch was on the Knife River east of Marshall. The Captain was Justice of the Peace for many years. He and his wife, Thrine are buried at Kyseth, as are their sons Christian and Carl, Carlís first wife Zelma Jensen and Carlís second wife Beulah Allen Siverts. Beulahís parents, Frank and Hedwig Allen, as well as Captain Sivertsí sister Ida Lyster and her husband Henry Lyster are buried here.
Another such example of the family relationships interred at Kyseth Memorial Cemetery is that of the Selleís. John Selle came to the United States in 1904. He married Marie Dalen, the granddaughter of John Kyseth and niece of Carl Kyseth. John Selle and his sons, Hjalmer and Kenneth farmed together until Johnís death in the 1950s. After that Hjalmer and Kenneth continued the farming partnership for another 20 years. All of these individuals mentioned in this narrative, as well as three of Kenneth Selleís children are interred here.
Kyseth Memorial Cemetery is located approximately 2 1/2 miles east of Marshall, ND.
