The Ridpath Family Cemetery in the Simpkinstown area of Snowville contains Lemuel and Myrtle Ridpath, and a few of their sons and daughter-in-laws. It is located behind Lemuel's home where most of his children grew up. The home has since been torn down and a newer house is in that location.
The cemetery also contains the graves of around a dozen unknown individuals marked with fieldstones. These were the original graves which predated the Ridpaths. It is likely they are some of the family who owned the land in the 1800s before the Ridpaths, but their family name is currently not known.
Ridpath family says that there are also Native American burials just east of the cemetery on the same ridge.
The cemetery is currently maintained by Ridpath descendants who live in the area, although they no longer own the land around the cemetery. They have established a permanent easement to the cemetery through court rulings.
