Located in Section 31 of Bennington Township, Mower County, Minnesota, Angell Cemetery is also called Bennington Pioneer Cemetery, and contains 3 burials. The cemetery had not been located until recently, but it is believed that there are three stones piled along a fence line, and that is all that remains (November 2006). The cemetery has not been registered or plotted at the courthouse.

The cemetery is in a field south of Grand Meadow, about 7 miles south of Grand Meadow on County Road 8. About 4 miles south of Grand Meadow, you will pass County Road 3 which goes west towards Austin, and a mile farther south, on County Road 8, where County Road 3 goes east towards Ostrander. Continue south on County 8 for two more miles.

Bill Sweetser's place is on the corner of 170th Street. Turn east on his gravel road, go about 3/4 of a mile. Look south, about 25 to 50 feet into the field, and a little more from the intersection of the two gravel roads. There is a little tree or bush, with three stones there. -- Sue Doocy (March 2007)
