Notes:
Riverton Cemetery, Riverton, Fremont County, Iowa, USA is located at the end of Summer Avenue just South or Riverton, Fremont County, Iowa, USA. The town of Riverton was laid out in 1870 on land purchased from Isaac & Coleman Smith. The Riverton Cemetery was platted in the town plot and a warranty deed for the cemetery was filed with the Recorder on Jun 9, 1880 and listed John Denison, as the seller of the land for $250 to the trustees. The cemetery association received its articles of incorporation in 1879. The first recorded death was that of William C Davis on Dec 12, 1884, at the age of 37 years. The undertaker was A. Shoemaker and the attending physician was C. T. Clark. Kimber Shull was Riverton's first licensed embalmer and his son Earl joined his father in the business in 1946 and he has kept the record of all burials since that time. One long-time resident of Riverton remembers the early days of the cemetery when it was filled with beautiful wild flowers. This was one of the first cemeteries where an avenue of flags was developed on each side of the entry road. Today nearly 60 flags fly on special occasions.
