The original part of Ridgewood Cemetery lies on the hill, west of the tool shed. There seems to be no lots here. The graves seem to be more or less in rows. There is no perpetual upkeep on this old part.
The part to the east was owned by David W Wray. He sold 20' x 20' lots. There are 3 additions to this part. These are called the "Hitching Grounds Addition" with lots numbering 1 to 15, the "Wray Addition" with lots numbering 1 to 15, the "David W Wray Addition" with lots numbering 1 to 57. Since then the following have been added the "1st Penn Addition", the "2nd Penn Addition" and the "West Addition".
According to the record on Sep 8 1919, David W Wray gave Penn Twp a quit claim deed for the first three additions.
In 1918, the turstees bought a portion of ground from D.E. Denison on which they platted 20' x 20' lots .
In 1942, one acre of ground was acquired from J.P. Crozier across the road from the present cemetery.
