Cemetery Listing - Riverside (Pike Family Section)

When construction of the Samuel Moore hydroelectric dam began, the village of Upper Waterford was to be inundated. There were two cemeteries in Upper Waterford which would be inundated along with the village. These cemeteries were the Pike Family Cemetery and the Upper Waterford Cemetery. A new cemetery, the Riverside Cemetery was created to receive the bodies from the two cemeteries.

During the summer of 1953, the bodies and headstones were removed from their previous locations and were interred in the new cemetery in a layout closely following the previous layout. Some organic material thought to be the remains of a body was also moved.

In the 1980s Eugenia Powers documented  the stones found in the Riverside cemetery. This listing was derived from her work, a copy of which was placed in the Waterford library. Facing the cemetery from the road, row numbers progress towards the rear of the cemetery and grave numbers begin on the left and progress towards the right. The first section between Cemetery Road and the first road within the cemetery contain burials from the Old Upper Waterford Cemetery. The second section between the first and second cemetery roads contain burials from the Old Upper Waterford Cemetery and burials after 1953. The section beyond the second cemetery road contain burials from the Old Pike Family Cemetery and unidentified remains.

This listing pertains to burials interred in that section of the Riverside Cemetery that is furthest from the road. An asterisk identifies information obtained from Waterford vital records.
