Ridgeway cemetery Photo by Cynthia McAfee

Welcome to the Ridgeway Cemetery Page. This document summarizing data for 126 graves was created by merging the information found in the Works Project Administration (WPA) 1930ís Graves Registration Survey (38 records), the ongoing Iowa Gravestone Photo Project (GPP) (115 records), and the ongoing IAGenWeb Obituaries (Obits) (2 records). The left column of the tabulation indicates the source of the summary data WPA (W), GPP (P) and Obits (O). Note that some records have more than one source; this is because in many cases the information is redundant. If there is a disagreement, your county coordinator has used his best judgment about which information to include in the compilation. Please note the four icons below the cemetery tables. These icons can be used to access various web based sources of Ridgeway Cemetery information. This summary contains a wealth of information that was made available by volunteers taking pictures and transcribing data. Those volunteers are to be applauded, keep up the good work!
