Search Riverview Cemetery:

This cemetery was established to serve the needs of the local Afro-American population. There is no church involved nor have we been able to find any documentation for the acquisition of the lands involved. It is located in the northeast quadrant of Red River County, Texas. The cemetery is on the Chapman Ranch on CR 3340 off CR 1699, north of English. The oldest record we have is 1900 for the Rev. John Woods. The burials shown here are mostly from the record books of Jolly Funeral Home. On 2 Feb 2000 we attempted to get to the site but were turned back by sodden roads. We will try later. We were again on the site on 21 Feb 2004 and found the same conditions. Will try later. As of 31 Dec 2004 this cemetery had 34 documented burials.
