He died there in 1900.

Searching Cemeteries

If you're looking for where a relative is buried, there's something online called FIND A GRAVE where family members or volunteers post pics of monuments. It's honestly fun to figure out where someone is buried, and go take a photo of it for someone who can't.

We went to the Stearns History Museum yesterday and got maps of two cemeteries in St Cloud, Minnesota: Calvary (public) and Assumption (Catholic) Cemeteries.
I'm posting them because you can look-up a Minnesota grave on DALBY DATABASE and find the section that person is buried in. IF they're in Calvary or Assumption, you've just scored!

The CALVARY CEMETERY MAP is in three parts: (Click to enlarge)

And ASSUMPTION CEMETERY is all on one messy page:
