Discovery 2017: Richmond Cemetery #93

A new Richmond cemetery, which will be officially #93, was discovered on the deCoppett property (see Archives: deCoppett Estate) in the Hillsdale section of Richmond.  This is the 8th cemetery, so far, locatedon the property.

According to Dory Wagner, there are no inscriptions showing on the stones.  For now it will be an “unknown” cemetery.  Dory is in the process of researching family names of some of the old farms that were in the area in order to better determine who is buried there.

Saturday, April 15, 2017 Historic Cemetery Preservation and Awareness Day  was celebrated in Rhode Island.  Dory hoped to get two separate groups to clean two cemeteries on that day. #93 was most likely one of them.
