Ramsey County "Poor Farm" cemetery look-ups

I've recently come into possession of a 1998 publication entitled "Ramsey County's Forgotten Cemetery". It's about the Ramsey County "Poor Farm" cemetery that was located on White Bear Ave. in St. Paul, MN. It contains a transcription of all of the people buried in the cemetery from 1893 - 1923. The graves are still there, but all but one remain unmarked.

From the book: "... the people buried here were often poor or indigent. Any person who died or was found dead anywhere in Ramsey County whose survivors could not afford to to pay for a private burial would have been interred here, not just residents of the Ramsey County Poor Farm".

A am willing to do look-ups for those who may have relatives buried in this cemetery. Please message me on Ancestry or reply here with pertinent details. Some of the entries are incomplete, many give quite a bit of info, including the cause of death. The baby entries are particularly heartbreaking.
