Riverside Cemetery in Section 21 of West Bend Township of Palo Alto County IOWA

OR from West Bend 3 1/2 miles west and one mile south (4803 - 545th Ave. - West Bend, Iowa).  

Walked and Recorded May 28, 2002 Two days after Memorial Day and there was NOT a memorial on any of the graves.  Last burial was 1998. This is a very poorly kept cemetery. Some stones were laying in a heap under a nearby tree!  

Interesting inscription was that on the Dewitt Plot, it read:
"Here lies the remains of the Dewitt Family, where there gone
or how they fare, nobody knows and nobody cares"
