Bringing a rural Cokato cemetery to life COKATO, MN Watson Cemetery is located along a quiet dirt road on the outskirts of Cokato. It is a small rural cemetery on 1.5 acres of land, with some grave markers so old they are illegible. Many others have been replaced or upgraded over the years. The Watson Cemetery Association, a group of neighbors who oversee the property, has recently developed a renewed vision for its upkeep.
