Re: Riverside Cemetery in Ironwood, Michigan requests. I have taken a number of photos at Riverside and filed them per block (not named yet). I will happily search the photo's to look for a name if you know the block number. Thanks Connie!

Riverside Potters Field Block Numbers are 34 and 35. I have all the stones photographed, just not named yet.
Note: There are a few graves that were in the Hurley transcript that are listed as being in St. Mary's Cemetery. Easy error if transcribing from photos, as the road between the 2 cemeteries is closed and covered with grass. It is hard to distinguish who is where in some cases. I went entirely by the transcripts. I will add the photos according to the names on the transcripts.

The City of Hurley, Wisconsin recently gave me a copy of the Hurley Cemetery transcripts. They were updated on May 27, 2014 by Linda. Thanks for her work and thanks for sharing a copy. Any mistakes in transcribing them to Find A Grave are mine and mine alone. Please use the 'EDIT' tab to make any corrections or additions. Thanks....

To those who helped me with the Hurley Cemetery - Thank you and work and time much appreciated.

Names in transcription are all online at the Hurley Cemetery as of September 27, 2015. All photos that I have taken other than a few I have to try to translate are on Find A Grave as of January 3, 2016.

Note: The Hurley Cemetery and St. Mary's Cemetery are in the same place with just a small road between the two. The Jewish Cemetery, Sharey Zedek, is in the same area, but it is marked. If you have family buried here and can't locate them, it may be best to check all as I have heard all 3 referred to as "The Hurley Cemetery." Another note. In the Ironwood Daily Globe, these were referred to as "The Hurley City Cemetery."

I will gladly transfer any Memorials from Nebraska or Wisconsin. I only took the pictures, I'm not related.

I will be happy to go to the Riverside Cemetery in Ironwood, Gogebic County, Michigan and take photos. In this case please call the courthouse in Gogebic County and get the location of the Grave/s and then make a request. There are over 20,000 graves in the Cemetery and with just a block number I can usually just take a walk with my camera and find it faster. Thank You.

Any pictures I have taken and downloaded as MLW anyone is welcome to use for their personal family genealogy and reference. I'm happy to share. No credit necessary. Thanks. MLW 2015
