Ness Memorial Cemetery??? The first pioneers to settle in this area arrived by July, 1856, three months after their oxen-drawn prairie schooners left Rock County, Wisconsin. They were the families of Henrik H. Thoen, Ole H. Ness, Nels H. Colberg and bachelors Ole H. Thoen, Gunder Olson and Amos N. Fosen. They organized this community cemetery about one year later, with the first interment recorded in March, 1858.
