Riverside Cemetery was established in 1887 as a private cemetery located above the Ocmulgee River and has operated as a not-for-profit entity since the 1940s. The cemetery is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and is the final resting place for more than 18,000 people representing many ages, faiths, races, and national creeds. Many Civil War veterans from both sides are interred in Riverside Cemetery's 125 acres of landscaped property. Careful records, including thousands of obituaries, have been kept and maintained since the cemetery's inception in 1887.
Riverside Cemetery provides an online database to simplify finding loved ones. The search allows anyone to search for interments, view personal and family memorials, view original obituaries, and to locate grave sites on a map. Photos of many of the sites are shown, but not all pictures are currently available.
You can access this excellent database at no charge at http://www.riversidecemetery.com.
