Notes from transcriber Maggie Rail, Sep 27, 2006:
“To reach the cemetery, in Hay from Alkali Road drive north onto Hay-LaCrosse Road. After you cross the bridge over Alkali Creek watch for a gravel road on your right. This will take you up the hill to the cemetery.”
“This cemetery, which is situated on a hill overlooking the town of Hay, was established in 1899 on land donated by I.M. Curtis and was originally known as the Curtis Cemetery. Over the years it has gradually been renamed Hay Cemetery because of its locality.”
“This cemetery is fenced and appears to be getting a sprinkler system, however it was very dry when I was there and recently planted trees were dying. I am unsure who maintains it. One gentleman told me a it was maintained by Selbu Lutheran Church, but I have not found out for sure.”
“I compared my work with a reading done in 1973 by Wes & Carrie Lartigue. Listings taken from their work, which I found no marker for, are identified by an asterisk * following the entry.”
“I walked and read this cemetery on Aug 08, 2006, using my digital camera. I have a photo of all existing stones or markers.”
