Oscar Sandell (Lot 7 Block P) (marker–member of Bond and Meigs families)

The City of Minneapolis closed the cemetery to future burials in 1919.  Mr. Sandell burial in the cemetery was allowed because he had other family members already buried here.  In addition to being the only World War I veteran buried in the cemetery, he is likely the only veteran here who flew or rode in an airplane.  He served in the 680th Aero Squadron during World War I.  He died in 1958, aged 69 years old.
