My cousin (who lives in Wilmington) and I (I'm from San Diego) are trying to locate our grandparents' graves.
She remembers visiting our grandmother's grave in Riverview Cemetery (Katherine Wolferth Ley). She believes our grandfather (Rudolph Ley) died from alcohol abuse and was living at a boarding house at the time, and she THINKS that he was buried at Riverview Cemetery. The two graves may not be together.
She just wrote me that Riverview Cemetery is now listed as "abandoned" and she does not know how to get a list of the people buried there.
I have not called the Riverview Cemetery Co., but will try to get hold of them. I would hope they still have records of who is buried there, "abandoned" or not.
If anyone happens to be doing research in Riverview Cemetery and stumbles across the gravestones of my grandparents, could you let me know?
Thanks very much. Ruth O'Donnell
