Riceville Old Baptist Cemetery
The following Riceville Cemetery Records were kindly provided by Darlene Lapensee


The Church has not been used for at least fifty years according to long time residents of Riceville. The burying ground is presently in excellent condition as it is maintained by the Township of South Plantagenet. It is still being used for burials but only infrequently and generally only for members of families already buried there.
