Sandy contributed the information and photos for this page. Those who are interested in people buried at the Duane Cemetery may want to check out the Sheppard page of her site which features the Goodwins, Porters, and LaPrairies.

The town of Duane no longer exists, but it once lay north of Beaulieu, about the location of this cemetery. The town of Duane was named for Rev. Duane Porter. He is listed in the Memoirs of the Methodist Church - 1945 (found at the Minnesota History Center Library). That book lists his birth in 1850, his death in 1944, and his burial at the cemetery near Pine Bend Church.

The Duane Cemetery may have, at one time, been affiliated with the Episcopalian denomination.

It is located on land now owned by the Winkler family.
Directions are: Travel to Beaulieau, Minnesota on White Earth Indian Reservation. Then drive seven to eight miles north on #3. There is a bale shed on the right (east) side of the road. A dirt road on the north side of the shed leads to the cemetery.

NOTE: There was a weathered chart of the cemetery posted at the cemetery. There were names on the chart for whom there was no stone and there were many stones not included on the chart. There were areas of the cemetery where it was obvious a stone had sunken into the ground- especially at the borders of the cemetery near the farm field.
