Riverview Cemetery
Also known as:  Cornplanter Cemetery, Corydon Cemetery

This cemetery is part of a three cemetery complex. The Riverview Cemetery, which had been created in 1835; The Corydon Cemetery, established in 1819, was originally located in the River Valley, near the small villages of Corydon and Kinzua, PA and they were removed in 1964 to make way for the construction of the Kinzua Dam and the lake that flooded this town. The third cemetery is the Cornplanter Cemetery, of the Seneca Indian Nation, which was also located in the nearby river valley and was removed in 1964 for the same reasons aforementioned.



All three of these cemeteries occupy the same plot of ground, which overlooks the Kinzua Reservoir, on the north side of Willow Bay where it intersects the main lake body and they are maintained by the Descendants of Philip Tome, to this very day.
