Montour County & Riverside Cemeteries

In the table below, "MCGS" in the "records" column indicates that burial lists are available at the MCGS Genealogy Room in the Thomas Beaver Free Library in Danville, PA. Links are provided to any known online lists.  A map and detailed directions to all known Montour County Cemeteries is available from the Genealogical Society for $3.00 ($5.00 if mailed).  Although Riverside, once called "South Danville", is actually in Northumberland County, it is included here because of its close proximity to Danville and Montour County.  If you are unable to travel to Danville to search for your ancestors, our volunteer staff can perform that service.  Click here for details and fees.  We now have lists of burials for all known Montour County cemeteries with the exception of St. Joseph's  and we continue to work on updating and reformatting what we have collected.  Please click on the lookups tab for complimentary lookup of a particular individual.  A number of the online resources are incomplete and we may be able to help you.
