For Memorial Day, we offer this list of nearly 700 veterans buried in Ridgefield cemeteries. The list is a work in progress, and by no means complete.
We visited every gravesite to confirm its existence and gather information and photos, all of which are online and available to the public on FindAGrave.com
Cemeteries that have been completed include Mapleshade, Fairlawn, Scott’s (also called Ridgefield Cemetery), Titicus (also called Old Town Cemetery), Hurlbutt, and Seymour. St. Mary Cemetery is nearly complete, and work has also been done at Branchville Cemetery (the only cemetery with a military section).
The listings are based on information at the gravesite and/or information obtained from obituaries or town histories.
We welcome additions to this list at jackfsanders atsign gmail dot com
Here is the link to the cemetery list, which in turn has links to all the men and women listed.
