Retired Navy finally time to find my roots. Each day brings new stories well worth the read. Collecting photos of stones. Objective to find each tree members stone or reason why not. Isn't possible but it is fun trying and it keeps the history alive. I'd like to see a statistic on how many stones are destroyed or vandalized each day. A tip of the glass to all you volunteers.|

|R.D. Herring||RE: Riley Cemetery Breadcrumbs|
As small as the Riley Cem is, it's easy to get disoriented in its interior because of the thick growth, although the vegetation is mainly this season's shoulder-high plants & brambles. Looking at the square made by the cemetery fence and perimeter trees on the sat map, the walk-in gate is on the north side near the NW corner. When you walk in, the Giesler grave is on your right inside the NW corner.
Starting with Emeline Worley's grave (shown in the interior shot) near the west fence-line, and moving east, the family names are Worley, Harkleroad and Riley, ending (near the SE corner) with the broken marker of Teampea Riley and her three infants. Arry Little was seemingly by herself near the lone tree on the eastern fence-line.
The ground is covered with several year's worth of vines and ivy. We stumbled onto several illegible field stone markers all around the graveyard; I created an "Unknown" Memorial using a picture of the largest. All along the northern fence-line (especially the NE corner) is especially overgrown. There may well be other markers there. I took an exploratory pass through there, but having seen a badger hole near the Giesler grave, I left closer inspection for the wintertime.
The best news is, someone has built an excellent board fence (with wrought iron walk-in gate) that encloses the entire cemetery.

It was our pleasure to visit the Riley Cem. As much as we like documenting for posterity, it's even more fun working with descendants. Glad it all worked out.

I no longer have the original image. I will try to go back there in a few days to get a better picture or let you know the inscription content.
|A Horan||RE: Find A Grave Memorial# 39087627|
You're very welcome for the photos. I'm glad that the photos were able to give you more information about him.
Thank you for your kind and thoughtful message, and for sharing some background about Thomas with me.

Found it with no problems. I did not see any one else in this area, except of course, Laura Lou who shares the same plot.
|Michelle D||RE: Knox Little|
Yes this information will help greatly. I am very familiar with the mausoleums, but I should be able to locate this if it is marked. I will look for others also. Hopefully I can have something for you this afternoon.
|Michelle D||Knox Little|
I saw your request for photo. Do you know if he is in a crypt or in the ground? If he is in a crypt, would it be inside the mausoleum or one of the outside mausoleums? I will do my best to locate.

I founder Olga, she was buried beside her husband, Marvin Cogdell.
She is in section II (2). I overlooked her the first time because I "failed" to review her information before I went to the cemetery. So when I saw the Cogdell family stone I just walked right by it.
I went back to check, found her & the fotos that U requested are posted.
My error but it is not taken care of.
Later, James Coston
